  • MD-101T02-A: Managing Modern Desktops and Devices
    2 days  (Instructor Led Online)  |  Microsoft 365 - Modern Desktop Administrator

    Course Details

    The Managing Modern Desktops and Devices (MD-101T02-A) course provides you with key components of modern management and co-management strategies. In this course, you will examine what it takes to incorporate Microsoft Intune into an organisation and how to use it to manage modern desktops and devices.

    As demand for organisations to enable workforces to be more mobile, a Desktop Administrator’s role is really is no longer about just “desktop” management. With BYOD becoming commonplace and the need for employees to access line of business apps on personal devices, the scope of desktop administration must include both desktop and mobile devices, regardless of ownership.

    In this course, students will also learn about methods for deployment and management of apps and browser-based applications.
