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?
