WP_20151031_17_16_49_ProIn my blog of a couple of weeks ago I wrote to you that ConfigMgr is alive and kicking and ready for the future, and so it is! The first week of November we were as Enterprise Mobility MVP’s invited at the MVP Summit to attend 4,5 days full of System Center Configuration Manager and Microsoft Intune content.

Unfortunately for you most of it was NDA and we are not allowed to talk about it. Except for one part, we were able to be part of a real hackaton with the Configuration Manager product group!

outlookWhat the Enterprise Mobility Suite solution of Microsoft unique makes, is the Office suite which is available for iOS and Android. (and later this year on Windows 10 Mobile) One of the apps of the suite is the Outlook app. This app on iOS and Android can be managed via the Mobile Application Management policies in Microsoft Intune to control data leakage. When you want to prevent data leakage you may want to force the users to use the Outlook app instead of the native mail and calendar apps on iOS and Android.

This can be done, let’s see how.

emsappsettings01Since this week Microsoft Intune supports Mobile App Configuration Policies which allows you to configure settings in an application that you are deploying via Microsoft Intune. The must be enabled to support App Configuration via MDM but does not have to be the Intune SDK integrated.

On this page you see the MAM enabled apps for Intune, on the same page I will also create references to apps that support Mobile App Configuration soon!

Console extendedCurrently more and more applications in the Apple and Google Play stores become manageable via Microsoft Intune.

For instance, when you have the Microsoft Office mobile apps available in Microsoft Intune for a while you may want to use the Mobile Application Management policies to control what the users are able to do with the corporate data in the apps. Currently, if you do nothing the app currently stay unmanaged.

So let’s see what you can do in both Intune and Configuration Manager.

msemsToday I placed a section on my blog where I will be keeping track on all (free) Store Apps that are supporting the Mobile Application Management Policies in Microsoft Intune and Configuration Manager 2012 R2 SP1.

Till later!


mam-sccm-00A couple of months ago I wrote a series of blogs about the Mobile Application Management Policies in Microsoft Intune. With the release of Configuration Manager 2012 R2 SP1 lot’s of new features arrived in Configuration Manager.

Both Microsoft Intune and Configuration Manager 2012 have the same Mobile Device Management features now. More on the new features in later blogs, today I want to focus on the Mobile Application Management Policies in Configuration Manager 2012 R2 SP1.

BLOG-1000070One of the many many new features of Microsoft Intune releases the last couple of months is the Intune App-Layer protection. In short, with Intune App-layer protection you are able to protect your corporate data with managed apps, in other words Mobile Application Management support is added to Microsoft Intune. But how do we manage apps with Microsoft Intune and what is possible? Let’s have a look in the next couple of blogs at what it is, which flavors are available and how you are able to set it up.

mac-os-x-parallels-80Last month Parallels released version 3 of the Parallels Mac Management for SCCM. Today we will have a look at the new features that are coming with this new release. If you want to see what I covered in the five earlier blogs, look here (1), here (2), here (3), here (4) and here (5) :) See in this blog my highlights of the new version. When installing the plugin, the configuration wizard will help you setting it up and a SQL database is created to store the configuration. Before installing the new version, the old 2.5 version needed to be uninstalled by hand but all objects in ConfigMgr are preserved and usable with the 3.0 version.

citrix-connector-7_5-00Thanks to a tweet of fellow ECM MVP Marius Sandbu I was triggered that yesterday the new version of the Citrix Connector for Configuration Manager 2012 was released.

Last year I spend some time on and blogged about the earlier version of the Citrix XenApp Connector. If you ask me a very nice addition to Configuration Manager 2012 and Citrix XenApp or Citrix XenDesktop if you need to manage both. With this connector you are able to manage the Citrix farms from a single pain of glass, the Configuration Manager console :)

This version supports XenApp, XenDesktop 7.1 and XenDesktop 7.5. So this means more testing and new blogs are coming up in the next couple of weeks/months :)

res-wm2014-00Last couple of weeks I was able to test the new upcoming RES Workspace Manager 2014 together with Configuration Manager 2012 R2. With RES Workspace Manager you are able to manage your workspace by for instance locking it down and just publishing shortcuts for the applications a user is allowed to run.

The current version, RES Workspace Manager 2012 is currently supports both Configuration Manager 2007 and Configuration Manager 2012 but only the legacy packages and programs. But the new version RES Workspace Manager also supports the new applications. (Finally) I remember asking it every time on every event where RES was present :)  Today a quick sneak peak of how the integration looks like.
