Course Syllabus

Module 1: Desktop and Device Deployment
Before you can deploy Windows 10, you need to make sure your organization is ready. This module will introduce the required information gathering, compatibility analysis, project management, and piloting – an iterative process. In this module, we show the tools to help with common concerns around app and hardware compatibility, web compatibility, and readiness for upgrades.

Protecting company assets on mobile devices will continue to grow as a crucial challenge to IT. In this module, we will cover the latest advancements in Microsoft Intune’s Mobile Application Management solution.
