With flexibility and choice come challenges.
In today’s business world, the phrases “consumerization of IT” and “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) are common.
Today’s employees expect to be productive across a variety of device types, with access to the applications they need – anytime, anywhere.
Businesses must protect their data and may require a comprehensive set of access control and data-protection capabilities.
And many businesses are looking to unify their infrastructure technology environment. They may seek a common identity across on-premises and the cloud, with deeply integrated capabilities for PC and mobile device management.
The Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) is a package of Microsoft offerings, designed to address these challenges. EMS provides a cost-effective way to acquire the following cloud services:
Microsoft Azure Active Directory Premium
Microsoft Azure Rights Management
Using EMS solutions, you can help your customers be productive across the devices they love, with access to the info they need.
We have EMS training available to help you via the new EMS learning path. On the path you’ll see a streamlined list of recommended training per role.
Your calls to action:
For sales, the "Empowering EMS" training is a 40-minute webcast and downloadable presentation deck. You’ll dive into market trends, enterprise challenges around BYOD, hybrid identity management (how to manage the mix of on-premises Active Directory and cloud-based active directory and device management), and mobile device and app management (to make sure personal devices do so securely). You’ll learn about access and information protection to help ensure the integrity of data is maintained, and about desktop virtualization. There is also information on benefits, competitive positioning, pricing, and licensing.
Presales roles have something similar to the sales training, but with deeper detail for each of the main functions of EMS. This video is a little more than an hour long.
For technical roles, we have the EMS Technical Training Kit, which delves into the benefits and details of how to set up, deploy, configure, manage, and monitor the components of EMS. The kit can help you learn about EMS technical topics and is designed to help you succeed in completing the "Enterprise Mobility Suite" sections of the Microsoft Partner Network Devices and Deployment technical assessment. The kit is self-serve, meaning you can review the content in sequence or jump to a section that you’d like to focus on. There are modules for EMS, Microsoft Intune, Azure Active Directory Premium, Azure Rights Management Service, and a conclusion.
In addition to these role-based trainings, I encourage you to check out these related resources:
The Devices and Deployment competency, which helps you maximize the opportunity to deliver operating systems and services in the cloud and on-premises.
More EMS info on Microsoft.com – this is the consumer-facing website where you’ll learn more about the EMS offerings, from the end-user point of view. You’ll find a data sheet, white paper, how to buy, how to support, and more.
