Technical Interview:
Starting at [03:30] – we interview Principal Program manager Jeffrey Sutherland on how System Center Configuration Manger 2012 manages mobile devices. More specifically, we ask:

  • What are the advantages of managing mobile devices using Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) with SCCM versus natively in Exchange or Office 365?
  • How does SCCM utilize EAS to manage mobile devices?
  • How frequently does SCCM query the CAS for the updates to detected devices?
  • Where is the connecting device type stored at?
  • How can you connect to multiple exchange organizations to manage devices?
  • How can we do deeper device management with SCCM 2012 than what EAS provides?
  • What kind of architecture design can you have with your Enrollment server, EWS, and DMP?
  • How can you streamline the enrollment process for devices under deeper management using SCCM?
