Windows Store For Business Resources

Recently I’ve been involved in a series of events that have included content on Windows Store For Business, and there are some useful resources that I point people back to which are worth sharing here. If you are using Intune standalone or as part of the Enterprise Mobility Suite, take a look at these two blog posts to begin with. Silently push the Microsoft Intune Company Portal to Azure AD Joined Windows 10 devices Block Windows 10 Public Store using

March 2016 Updates For Intune

Below you will find the details of all of the updates for Intune for March 2016, but I’ll call out some of the ones that will have an immediate impact for me. Manage the Microsoft Outlook app with MAM policies for devices not enrolled in Intune – any additional Office mobile app support with MAM without relying on MDM enrollment is a good thing as far as flexibility in deployment is concerned. Find, manage, and distribute Windows Store for Business

Microsoft Specialist – 70-398 Planning For And Managing Devices In The Enterprise – Exam Now Live

Overnight I received notification that the results were in for those who sat the beta version of the 70-398 Planning For And Managing Devices In The Enterprise, and thankfully I’d managed to get through. One of the hardest parts of preparing for beta exams is that you don’t have much to go by in terms of specific preparation content. More often than not in my case it turns into a somewhat chaotic effort to pull together a diverse range of resources that

Changes to Azure RMS logs

Azure RMS has just had another update, this time around it’s around changes to the usage logs being enabled automatically using free storege. Previously you had to manually create and manage an Azure Storge Account and enable the logging via PowerShell, but this is now automated for you. Below are the FAQs that were included in an update email sent out to Azure RMS customers. Is usage logging enabled by default for all Azure RMS customers? Yes, it’s enabled whether

2 free Windows 10 ebooks from Microsoft Press

MS Press has a couple of free ebooks that cover Windows 10, the first is the updated version of Ed Bott’s Introducing Windows 10 for IT Professionals, Technical Overview, which includes new information covering build 1511. The second one to grab is Deploying Windows 10: Automating deployment by using System Center Configuration Manager, which isn’t targetting as broad an audience, but for those who need to do large scale Windows 10 deployments it will definitely be useful. A plug for

Azure Active Directory Connect 1.1 Available Now

This update was released last week as I was part way through delivery a 2 day Enterprise Mobility Suite training course, which lead to an interesting situation in student labs – some downloaded V1, while others were presented with 1.1 during the labs. Not a showstopper by any means, instead it just reconfirmed one of the important pieces of the EMS conversation, which is that you really do need to pay attention to the changes that are always taking place.
