TechMentor 2-Day Hands-On Training Seminar:
Architecting Microsoft Endpoint Manager to Efficiently Manage Windows 11 Devices
November 9 - 10, 2021
9:00AM – 5:00PM Central
Level: Intermediate

This comprehensive 2-day seminar is full of hands-on labs that are designed to teach you the main components of Configuration Manager and Intune, what they're used for, and how to optimize the design to minimize cost and management of the infrastructure. Guided through real world scenarios by industry experts, you will learn why Microsoft Endpoint Manager continues to dominate the systems management space and how its customers were able to easily transition to a telecommuting workforce at the start of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The ability for an organization to offer Work from Anywhere capability to its staff, without compromising security or data integrity, is critical for the continued operation of every business. Learn how to configure these products to fully support your enterprise devices, whether on-premises, off-premises, in the datacenter, or virtualized in Azure.

In a hybrid world, we need hybrid management of our assets. This is particularly important when it comes to Operating System servicing and imaging. This seminar guides you through the configuration process to handle your on-prem imaging requirements for servers and desktops, and how to maintain them using Software Updates and Delivery Optimization with Intune.

The simple act of shipping end-user devices to a corporate location for configuration, prior to delivery to the end user, can create a complex and expensive process. AutoPilot with Microsoft Intune allows you to assign a device configuration to computers as they leave the distributor, allowing direct-to-employee shipping, simplifying device setup for the user, and ensuring security compliance is met before corporate connections are initiated. Using a hands-on lab, we will explore AutoPilot in detail and examine the options for initial device configuration and ongoing compliance.

This course contains 12 modules:

  • Introduction and access to your lab environment
  • Managing User Identity and connecting Active Directory to Azure
  • Configuration Manager - Building the right Solution Design
  • Configuration Manager - Automating the Configuration
  • Configuration Manager - Package Automation
  • Configuration Manager – Deploying Windows 11
  • ConfigMgr/Intune - Integration and Co-Management Workloads
  • Intune - Conditional Access
  • MEM Compliance
  • Windows Update for Business
  • Intune - AutoPilot

Attendees will learn:

  • How to optimize the Configuration Manager Infrastructure
  • How to find and use scripts or free 3rd party software to streamline installation and management
  • How to easily manage and deploy COTS (Commercial Off The Shelf) applications
  • How to ensure device compliance across servers and workstations
  • How to deploy Operating Systems to new machines and for break/fix/upgrade scenarios
  • How to configure Co-Management between Configuration Manager and Intune
  • How to configure AutoPilot for Direct-to-employee shipments of new devices
  • How to use Intune for patching and Windows 10 Feature Upgrades
