Hi everyone. My name is Simon Binder, and welcome to my course, Mobile Device Management - The Big Picture. I'm a solution architect and a Microsoft Certified Trainer. In 2014, there were more mobile devices than people in the world, and the numbers have continued to increase since then. With that comes a number of new security challenges that you need to address. In this course, we are going to learn why you should and how you can manage your organization's mobile devices using an MDM solution. No prior experience of any MDM solution is required. Some of the major topics that we will cover include why do you need an MDM solution, the benefits of an MDM, planning for MDM implementation, choosing your device settings, and available MDM solutions. By the end of this course, you'll know what an MDM can do for your organization and how you can ensure a successful implementation that creates great and secure user experiences. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn about management of mobile devices with the Mobile Device Management - The Big Picture course at Pluralsight.
