Research Association Enhances Mobility, Virtual Collaboration with Cloud-Based Tools
The DFG (German Research Foundation) wanted to promote collaboration among researchers in global offices. It deployed Nokia Lumia 930 Smartphones running the Windows Phone 8.1 operating system to 240 employees so they can access documents in Microsoft OneDrive for business cloud storage. To enable this mobile productivity, DFG chose Microsoft Intune and IT staff gained an efficient, cloud-based solution to manage and help secure the smartphones. Microsoft Intune connects with configuration manager, a component of system center and to provide a single console for both tools. Using this configuration, IT staff gains a new global administrative perspective.
