Microsoft Endpoint Manager from Zero to Hero - Lab Guide

About the Book

This lab guide teaches the main components of Microsoft Endpoint Manager (MEM) Configuration Manager and Intune, what they're used for, and how to optimize the design to minimize cost and management of the infrastructure. Guided through real-world scenarios by industry experts, you will learn why Microsoft Endpoint Manager continues to dominate the systems management space and how its customers were able to easily transition to a telecommuting workforce at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The ability for an organization to offer Work from Anywhere capability to its staff without compromising security or data integrity is critical for the continued operation of every business. Learn how to configure these products to support your enterprise devices fully, whether on-premises, off-premises, in the data center, or virtualized in Azure.

In a hybrid world, we need hybrid management of our assets. This is particularly important when it comes to Operating System servicing and imaging. This seminar guides you through the configuration process to handle your on-prem imaging requirements for servers and desktops and maintain them using Software Updates and Delivery Optimization with Intune.

The simple act of shipping end-user devices to a corporate location for configuration before delivery to the end-user can create a complex and expensive process. AutoPilot with Microsoft Intune allows you to assign a device configuration to computers as they leave the distributor, allowing direct-to-employee shipping, simplifying device setup for the user, and ensuring security compliance is met before corporate connections are initiated. Using a hands-on lab, we will explore AutoPilot in detail and examine the options for initial device configuration and ongoing compliance.
