Devices, Azure RemoteApp, iOS9 managed apps and an anechoic chamber, this week in Windows and Enterprise Mobility.
Now that is what I call a super-exciting week! Did you see that devices event?! As usual this week there’s been so many gems of technical content and, just downright cool, stuff released that I’ve tried to distill into just five, simple, easy things for you to digest on a Friday, or across the weekend!
Back to my earlier point…did you see that devices event? Yes – wasn’t it epic. It was only press in attendance but Panos Panay got a standing ovation…from the press! So much was announced it’s hard to give you just a single link to read about, but I’d recommend taking a watch of the keynote – just take an hour and watch (I was watching on the cross trainer at the gym with my Microsoft Band – see below image I NAILED some calroies).
What did we announce: Lumia 950 and 950 XL, Microsoft Band 2, Surface Pro 4 and Surface Book.
I’ve been using the Surface Book for about 2 months J and it’s freeking awesome. Right now I’m typing this on my Surface Pro 4 and the keyboard – oh man the keyboard!
One of the best things Apple has done in iOS 9 is introduce the ability to “take over” apps that are already installed and make them a corporate app. Peter van der Woude, has a great article on The New Managed App Installation Experience in iOS9. (I seem to always be including this guy).
There was a load of updates to Azure RemoteApp last month that were released to the blog. I also got to see some of what’s coming with this technology, earlier this week, and one thing I can tell you is that you NEED to be investigating Azure RemoteApp as part of your enterprise mobility solution. It’s about to blow the alternatives out of the water.
Microsoft Intune now makes it possible to deploy MSI based installs to Windows 10 devices through MDM. Pretty freaking cool, previously you’d have needed something like an agent installed on the machine. Now we make it happen in MDM and Nickolaj has a great post on Deploying a Windows Installer package with MDM.
I always try to bring you something not quite work related as the last thing. This is cool.
One thing about the new devices that makes them amazing is the amazing place we build them. Building 87. I’ve been there a few times and it’s just outstandingly nerdy. You can nerd out too by experiencing the quietest place on earth ) our audio lab (really it holds the world record. I’ve been in this room and it is unervingly quiet. It’s amazing.

Conditional Access, Device Refresh intervals, VPNs Suck, Exchange 2016 and devices!
This Friday Five is my round up of the things in the world of Windows and Enterprise Mobility that have made me think, smile and chuckle this week. Hopefully you find them useful and if you do, don’t forget to follow me on Twitter (@simonster) or subscribe to the blog on the right, so you don’t have to check back every week.
Peter van der Woude, Microsoft Enterprise Client Management MVP, continues his informative, multi-part series on conditional access for PCs. In this, the third installment, he enables conditional access for PCs to Exchange online.
Policy refresh times are frankly the bane of my life when it comes to doing demos. I’m constantly outfoxed by them. This excellent article, by shoud-be-MVP Nickolaj, is all you ever need to know about policy refresh cycles!
…and start using Azure AD App Proxy instead for publishing your on-prem applications to your users, through the cloud. If you aren’t familiar with our solution it leapfrogs what you can do with a VPN and you should really be asking yourself – Why the heck am I making my users use a VPN? Azure AD App Proxy can provide single sign-on, and it can do it with on-prem apps that even have different on-prem identities. In this blog post Meir explains you how.
Well it’s certainly the most familiar workload and millions of email admins are also mobility admins. Exchange Server 2016 was released this week – woot! – and all the “forged in the cloud” goodness that Office 365 customers have been experiencing for a while has come to the on-prem world. What does that mean? Simple: great experiences for Android and iOS devices, easier sharing with OneDrive documents being linked to emails rather than attached, MODERN AUTHENTICATION which supports multi-factor and sweet DLP scenarios. Check out what’s new in Exchange 2016 with this TechNet article.
October 6th has a great event happening in NY, NY and hopefully there will some cool new stuff to see. (hint: I know what’s coming and it’s cool, can’t say any more J). You can read about it on CNET right here.
