Android is becoming quite a growth area for Microsoft Endpoint Manager. Android is after all the most widely used mobile platform in the world. In this session Peter will take you through your options for Android with Endpoint Manager and how you should and shouldn't be managing your devices.

The World According To Endpoint Analytics

Endpoint analytics brings valuable information from your endpoints, direct to you the Endpoint admin.

Endpoint Analytics and proactive remediation

Endpoint Analytics is a new analytics solution from Microsoft that aims to increase user productivity by shifting focus from being reactive to being proactive. In order to be proactive, you need insight into data you can measure against. Endpoint Analytics consists of 3 components
– Redommended Software
– Startup Performance
– Proactive remediations
In this session we will go through all 3 components, while Proactive Remediations is the area we will spend the most time on.

Introducing Intune BIOS & Driver Control

Traditional ConfigMgr admins have grown up with tight control measures to allow them to deploy driver and BIOS packages. Over the past year in particular though, the focus has shifted away to direct management of devices through Intune.

In this scenario you can use automatic updating of drivers form Microsoft through update rings, or utilise OEM software to ensure you are always on the latest build. The issue is though if you want control across both your ConfigMgr and Intune managed devices, ensuring they are all in sync.

In this session we will run through how to apply control methods using community and OEM tools in harmony to ensure you have complete control over the stability of your end user devices.
