IT/Dev Connections 2015 Speaker

7:47 pm in Community, Configuration Manager, Events, Microsoft Intune by timdk

End of this week I will be heading to Las Vegas again for the 2015 edition of IT/Dev Connections. The event is taking place from the 14th to the 17th of September at the Aria Resort.

This year I will be delivering 2 sessions again with my regular co-speaker Kenny Buntinx. Both sessions are in the Enterprise Management and Mobility track:

# 1 – Securely Delivering Traditional Windows File Server Home Folders to BYOD Devices.

Discover the most hidden and underestimated Windows Server 2012 R2 feature, called Work Folders. Work Folders lets you leverage your file server investment while simultaneously providing end users with anywhere access to their data, from their work PCs to their personal devices. In this session you’ll learn about challenges for secure implementation and management not only with traditional home folders but also in the BYOD world. Discover how to deploy and manage Work Folders servers and clients, gain an understanding of how Work Folders operates end-to-end and integrates into your existing infrastructure, and learn how Work Folders takes advantage of capabilities such as multi-factor authentication, Workplace Join, and Selective Wipe to ensure that corporate data remains secure wherever it goes.

#2 – Arming Your Mobile Workforce Warriors for the 21st Century

In today’s world, your mobile workforce will most likely have expanded significantly. Managing your ever-expanding legion of mobile warriors and their arsenal of devices can be a challenging task. During this session we’ll show how Configuration Manager and the Intune extensions can help you manage your troops and arm them with the correct tools for battle. Learn how Intune and System Center Configuration Manager make it easy to manage all your Windows, Windows Phone 8, iOS, and Android devices with a single pane of glass. We’ll walk through how to easily configure devices for your users by pushing Wi-Fi, VPN, certificate, and email profiles as soon as they’re enrolled. We’ll cover configuration and management of device settings; provisioning profiles for email, VPN, and Wi-Fi; and other native features that come through the standard Intune extensions.

DevCon-Teaser1.Next to Kenny and myself there is a third SCUG.be member presenting at IT/Dev Connections: Dieter Wijckmans is going to rock and roll in the Cloud & Datacenter track. Have a look at his sessions here.

Make sure to do so, and most of all: reach out if you see us hanging around – we are looking forward to meeting you!

IT/Dev Connections 2014 Speaker

7:58 am in Community, Configuration Manager, Events, Microsoft Intune, System Center by timdk

In a few weeks I will be heading to Las Vegas for IT/Dev Connections. This conference is taking place at the Aria Resort from September 15th to the 19th.

With MMS being discontinued, this is an event I have been really looking forward to for the past few months. Next to being a first time attendee I am also honored to be able to deliver 2 sessions in the Windows track.

The Windows track has a great line-up of speakers and sessions, and the keynote for this track will be presented by Brad Anderson, Corporate VP at Microsoft (blog).

These are the session titles and abstracts of the sessions that I will be delivering:

Session 1 : System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager and Intune: Setup and deployment Notes from the field, with a focus on Single Sign on.

This session dives into what you’ll do at the server level to drive System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager and Windows Intune integration for mobile device management.

The session includes real-life experience from the field to set up a subscription, connectors, certificates, Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS 2.0/2.1/3.0), DirSync, and workplace join scenarios among all possible server configurations that enable mobile device management.

Learn best practices for setting up AD FS from the field for user authentication and Single Sign-On; prepare for the challenges if you invested in previous AD FS 2.0/2.1 and want to take advantage of AD …

Session 2 : Managing your hybrid Mobile cloud workforce demystified with System Center Configuration Manager 2012 R2.

Do you need to manage Windows 8.1/RT, including non-Microsoft mobile devices, with Microsoft’s UDM solution (Configuration Manager 2012 R2 plus Intune)? Do you need to provide functionality for deploying the new Intune extensions (such as email profiles), managing your MDM settings, configuring VPN and wireless profiles, and deploying certificates?

Compliance settings, company resource access, and Intune extensions delivered in Configuration Manager are mostly unexplored territory for the Configuration Manager administrator. In this session we’ll use numerous demos to demystify these features. …

I will be co-hosting these sessions together with my friend and ECM expert Kenny Buntinx. Both are currently scheduled on Wednesday September 17h. You can browse the full session catalog here.

Note that Kenny and myself will not be the only Belgians presenting at the conference. Also in the Windows track there will be 2 sessions from our fellow SCUG member Dieter Wijckmans and a session from Michael Van Horenbeeck. Together we will show some serious Belgian Community Power!
