This week at TechEd, we’re sharing our excitement about the upcoming releases of Windows Server 2012 R2, System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager, and Windows Intune. By itself, System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager can:

  • Deploy and manage Windows 8.1 and Windows Server 2012 R2
  • Provision certificates, Wi-Fi and VPN profiles
  • Deploy links to web applications
  • Provide role-based access to reports

When used in conjunction with the next release of Windows Intune, organizations can benefit from greater depth in device management in several areas, including:

  • Giving people a consistent experience in discovering and installing corporate applications that IT has made available to them, across all of their managed devices
  • Publishing corporate apps and services across device types, regardless of whether they’re corporate-connected or cloud-based
  • Granting more granular control over device settings available to configure Windows, Windows RT, Windows Phone 8, iOS, and Android devices to make them compliant with corporate policies
  • Wiping corporate applications, data, and policies from devices selectively when they are no longer managed by the organization
