Office and the Mobile Landscape
About a year ago we put out a mobility poster covering the SharePoint space. We’ve just released a follow-up that extends into Exchange 2013, Lync 2013, and Office Web Apps 2013. It’s not an exhaustive list of everything available for devices (Windows Phone, iOS, Android). However, it’s a good end-to-end peek at the Office mobile landscape, both Office 365 and on-premises. Some highlights:
- Apps/browser-based Mobile Experiences – A selection of downloadable apps and mobile browser views for SharePoint 2013, Exchange 2013, Lync 2013, and Office Web Apps 2013.
- Mobile Deployments – Some considerations for deploying a mobile infrastructure in your company. Cloud-based and on-premises topologies/guidance for phones and tablets.
- Device Management/Software Distribution – Windows Intune is a cloud-based management platform for mobile devices. It can either be used by itself, or coupled with System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager, to manage your devices.
So again it’s a good look into Office mobility, and ideal for ITPro decision makers needing to know more about Microsoft offerings here. You can get or view a copy of the poster at:
