BYOD in action – Modern Desktops at Microsoft – Seamless integration.

How do you get a new PC/Laptop on the Microsoft network? At Microsoft we have the ability to obtain a new device/reimage a machine and add it to the Domain ourselves. What does this involve?

To join our machine to the Azure Active Directory AAD we simply follow these steps with a brand new build.

Now what, I have no apps?

Then I go to the Office 365 Portal and download the Office desktop app.

I then confirm that both of my corporate and personal OneDrive’s are connected and syncing.

I then go to the store and installed the Expenses app (Dynamics) and the Company Portal.

Then I install a ‘follow me’ printer, Spotify and ITunes and I am good to go. Easy. ETA 20 mins or 35 mins with a full re-build. I haven’t had to call IT or the help desk once.

Why is this important? Companies can now pass this work to the end user who is comfortable doing this. My corporate data is still managed and segregated, all thanks the EMS and Office 365.
