Hi there! Welcome to Pluralsight. My name is Jason Yates and it's my pleasure to introduce you to Intune, and introduce you to our course Managing PCs and Devices with Microsoft Intune. I am a veteran Windows administrator and trainer with a background in both client and server technologies. And for the past 15 years, I've been helping organizations and training IT professionals on how to deploy the latest Windows operating systems and implement solid management infrastructures. This is one of the most important courses I've ever taught simply because today's mobile-first, cloud-first world is exerting all these new pressures and challenges on IT staff. Here's a summary of what I'm going to teach you - this course will focus on Intune's MDM and PC management features in a stand-alone configuration. To leverage these features, we'll spend the first modules getting to know Intune, then preparing our environment, and creating users and groups. Then I'll show you the ins and outs of enrollment and the company portal, before going head-long into Intune policies. Intune policies are at the heart of this course and we'll devote several modules on deploying policies to manage both mobile devices and PCs. It's my hope that the lessons in this course will give you a better understanding of Intune's ability to shepherd all those ipads and androids roaming in your office, as well as open up entirely new options in managing your personally-owned Windows devices and corporate owned desktops. It's BYOD, CYOD, and everything in between. Hope to see you soon!
