New Jisc cloud professional services pilots

I’m excited to introduce two new services that Jisc cloud is seeking institutions to pilot with us:

Microsoft Intune deployment accelerator pilot

A project to demonstrate how to use Microsoft Intune so that you can confidently set the configuration and policies that will enable endpoint management. This will include mobile devices as well as laptop/desktop computers.

    This service will consist of:

  • A workshop with the customer to help define the scope of a ‘proof of concept’ Intune deployment.
  • Demonstrating to the customer how to configure Intune, which will cover device enrolment, configuration, compliance, application deployment and Autopilot.
  • Once the customer has created their POC configurations, a best-practice review and feedback.

The emphasis of this service is to coach and enable customers to learn how to use Intune, so that they are empowered and skilled to securely manage the endpoint devices within their estate.

To find out more please contact your Jisc relationship manager
