Recap of a great community week!

Last week was a blast of community engagements. Hereby a recap…

Theme Night – Hybrid Identity & Business Continuity

Ahead of TechDays 2015 Netherlands the System Center User Group NL & Hyper-V.NU had the unique chance to welcome Simon May and Sergio Pattinama during Theme Night – Hybrid Identity & Business Continuity. This night Simon discussed how important hybrid identity is and how to adopt this into your organization with Azure AD Premium. He showed us how easily it is to add additional security layer to your username & password with Multi Factor Authentication (MFA) and keeping track on suspicious and irregular sign-ins from unknown resources or multiple geographies by using Security Reports, based on Azure Machine Learning.

Assign EMS licenses based on Local Active Directory Group Membership

 

 

As all roads lead to Rome there are many ways to assign Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) licenses to end-users. This can be a manual process or automated by using PowerShell. Both options have in common that you must be a global administrator of your Azure subscription to assign these licenses.

The majority of the available public resources and publications describes the (manual) process bassed on per user- or group assignment through the Azure Management Portal. Downside of assigning EMS licenses through the Azure Management Portal or by PowerShell is that you must be a member of the global administrator user role. A right you want to keep to a limited number of accounts, further these accounts are often not responsible for such tasks as assigning licenses.

I’m very excited having the opportunity to meet the product teams on Enterprise Mobility Suite (EMS) during a 4-day stay in Redmond (WA) next week! As my employer Inovativ is participating in the Red Carpet Program we’re invited to join the Enterprise Mobility airlift. An airlift is an event which outlines new features being released in a new wave/product release. This airlift includes deep dive sessions on Azure AD Premium, Microsoft Intune and Azure RMS. As Microsoft Partner we’ll be lined up with the latest technology and have the chance to discuss and provide feedback on the components involved with the Enterprise Mobility Suite.

Further I’m looking foward to meet some community friends in person like Mr. ‘IoT’ and ‘Enterprise Mobility’ Rob Tiffany. I let me assure that the coffee is ready at Satya’s office ;-)

So I challenge you to collect your best feedback and questions on Azure AD Premium, Microsoft Intune, Azure Rights Management and bring it on, I’ll forward them to the PG’s! You can drop me a line by Twitter, Facebook or by e-mail
