Mobile Device Management Design Considerations Guide

And another recent release from the ECM docs team at Microsoft.

With all of the different design and configuration options for mobile device management (MDM), it’s difficult to determine which combination will best meet the needs of your organization. This design considerations guide will help you to understand mobile device management design requirements and will detail a series of steps and tasks that you can follow to design a solution that best fits the business and technology needs for your organization. Throughout the steps and tasks, this guide will present the relevant technologies and feature options available to organizations to meet functional and service quality (such as availability, scalabiility, performance, anageability, and security) level requirements.

Specifically, the goals of this guide are to help you answer the following questions:

  • What questions do I need to answer to drive a MDM-specific design for a technology or problem domain that best meets my requirements?
  • What is the sequence of activities I should complete to design a MDM solution for the technology or problem domain?
  • What MDM technology and configuration options are available to help me meet my requirements, and what are the trade-offs between those options so that i can select the best option for my MDM requirement?

Windows 10 Client Connector Update for Windows Server Essentials 2012 R2 Released

In most cases, the need for customers to get this file urgently isn’t too big an issue yet because most of the PCs in an Essentials environment will be domain joined, and thus won’t receive an automatic update. You can grab the download here.

Here are the details from the download page.

Windows Server Essentials Connector for Windows Server 2012 R2

Windows Server Essentials Connector is software that helps you connect your PC or Mac client to Windows Server 2012 R2 with the Windows Server Essentials Experience server role enabled. It also enables and manages key client-side functionality of Windows Server Essentials Experience. On a PC, it provides client backup, a tray icon and the Launchpad, the Dashboard for management of remote servers, and a VPN profile with the capability of auto-dialing and monitoring client health from the server side. On a Mac, it provides health monitoring and the Launchpad.

You can download the updated connectors here

Before you proceed with this, take a look at the post from the Essentials team where they provide more details, and make sure you check out the comments and updated information.
