Intune has become a great enabler of all things mobile. In a world where many businesses are allowing employees to complete work on the devices of their choice, Microsoft has worked hard to support this movement via Intune. Watch Microsoft Technical Evangelists Anthony Bartolo and Simon May demonstrate an example of this bring-your-own-device (BYOD) enablement via the Samsung KNOX Android offering and Microsoft Intune.

Following up on my last post about some new TechNet vLabs available to help you try Enterprise Mobility Suite I thought I’d just pull together a quick list of some of the fantastic, free, technical learning content we have for your on Enterprise Mobility on Microsoft Virtual Academy. (MVA)

If you don’t know about MVA it’s fantastic free technical training, direct from Microsoft experts from inside and outside of Microsoft. There are resources to help you learn about many, many different Microsoft products and there are over 2m folks registered to participate – if you aren’t you probably should be!

Here is some of what MVA has to offer for Enterprise Mobility Suite:

Corporate Apps Anywhere, Anytime with Microsoft Azure RemoteApp

Azure RemoteApp combines Windows application experience and powerful RDS capabilities on Azure’s reliable platform and helps IT to bring scale, agility, and global access to corporate applications. In this course, learn more about how to scale up or down to meet dynamic business needs without large capital expense or management complexity, how to provide access to corporate applications from anywhere, on any device, and how to centralize and protect corporate resources on the reliable Azure platform.

We have more courses coming along all the time (we recorded Samsung KNOX management with Microsoft Intune today) and I’ll try to pop back and keep this blog post updated when we publish a new Enterprise Mobility Suite course on Microsoft Virtual Academy.
