Description

With applications, compliance settings, configuration settings under control, and even the deployment of wholesale desktops firmly within your grasp, it's time you started looking beyond the local area network towards those other machines, and how to extend the reach of Configuration Manager out onto the Internet. In this course, SCCM Current Branch: Support Internet-based Clients and On-premises MDM, you'll explore the many different options Configuration Manager now supports for extending its influence beyond the brick-and-mortar. First, you'll learn about the Internet-based Client Management configuration and other approaches that use Microsoft Azure to simplify the implementation. Next, you'll delve into the on-premises Mobile Device Management (MDM) and work through its installation and use to see where it fits. Lastly, you'll discover how to implement a Cloud Management Gateway and Cloud Distribution Points to get a feel for one of the more "modern" approaches to Windows and device management that leans on Azure cloud services for its functionality. By the end of this course, you'll have the fundamental knowledge to determine if these or the full Microsoft Intune stack are what you need for your requirements.

Course Overview
Hey. This is Greg Shields, and you've found the sixth course in my learning path on the configuration and everyday use of System Center Configuration Manager current branch and Microsoft Intune. I am author evangelist and a full-time author here at Pluralsight, and I've been building, managing, and helping others with SCCM since its earliest days as SMS version 1. 2. With applications, compliance settings, a variety of configuration settings under control, and even the deployment of wholesale desktops firmly within our grasp, it's time we started looking beyond the local area network and towards those other machines in the coffee shops and airports of the world and how to extend the reach of Configuration Manager out onto the internet. At the same time, Windows alone isn't the only computing platform for company data. Also in use today are a variety of devices that we might just want to start considering as objects needing configuration control. In this sixth course out of seven, we'll take a look at the many different options Configuration Manager now supports for extending its influence beyond the brick and mortar. These include the internet-based client management configuration that's been available for several generations, but also other approaches that use Microsoft Azure to simplify that implementation. Next, we'll spend a few minutes with on-premises mobile device management, or MDM, and work through its installation and use to see where it fits. Lastly, we'll implement a cloud management gateway and cloud distribution points to get a better understanding of the more modern approaches to Windows and device management that lean on Azure cloud services with air functionality. If you've just been tasked with building a new Configuration Manager environment, this course is your next stop in brushing up on those skills for success. And then from here, you'll be ready to continue on the learning path as we support Intune and co-management. Let's get started.
