SMB Tech Jumpstart: Hybrid Identity

Are you interested in EMS and Azure, but you aren’t sure where to start? Do you feel like you don’t quite know the technologies you’re selling? Maybe you just don’t know where to begin to understand all of the Microsoft tools?

 

Our new SMB JumpStart: Hybrid Identity program kicks off on October 3rd, and you won’t want to miss this great opportunity designed to help your team comprehend, adopt, and deploy Microsoft Technologies to expand your business opportunities.

This four-week program includes weekly webinars focused on a new aspect of the chosen technology, as well as hands-on independent learning assignments and Office Hours sessions, to help insure engagement and individual comprehension. If you have additional questions, there will be a members-only Yammer group where you can consult technical experts. At the end of the series, you will be your company’s Identity technical champion, ready to identify, pitch, and implement new customer services.

Benefits to you:

In this 4-week program on Hybrid Identity, you’ll receive step-by-step guidance and resources each week on the following topics:

  • Choosing a Champion and Activating Your Internal Use Rights
  • Connecting your On Premises Active Directory with Office 365 and Azure
  • Using Multi-Factor Authentication and Single Sign-on for other Software as a Service solutions
  • Custom Portal Branding, Password Writeback, and other enhanced Azure Active Directory Premium benefits

Who should participate: This program is best-suited for companies who are ready to commit to starting a EMS or Azure practice today. We recommend your company’s Office 365 technical lead attend the sessions.

 

Ready to get started?

The program kicks off on Monday, October 3rd.

Come and talk with me about Ransomware

I’ll be in two locations in September and October talking about Ransomware

The first is at Microsoft’s Ignite – https://myignite.microsoft.com/sessions/20567

The second is a birds of a feather session on Ransomware at ITDEV connections in Las Vegas.  http://www.itdevconnections.com/dc16/Public/SessionDetails.aspx?FromPage=Sessions.aspx&SessionID=1016761&SessionDateID=1000992

Ignite is sold out and ITDEV is almost sold out… so hurry fast

    

A new updating model

Further simplifying servicing models for Windows 7 and Windows 8.1

Get ready for a big change to how we install updates for Windows 7 and 8.1.  If you receive updates via windows update, your 7 and 8.1 updates are going to a cumulative 10 model.

If you are managing updates with WSUS and/or SCCM you’ll see one security update bundle and one non security update bundle each month.
