Our friends in France are currently working intensively on Test Lab Guides for Consumerization of IT. The next one was just released:
This is the overview:
Thinking about Consumerization of IT (CoIT) necessarily leads to some security and management challenges.
Microsoft has enabled CoIT through many technologies for many years and now helps IT managers face security, compliance and compatibility issues they might deal with and give users access to corporate intellectual property from ubiquitous devices, both managed and unmanaged.
More specifically, this document deals with the situation where a company would like to put in place a “Bring You Own Device” (BYOD) environment. For that purpose, the document demonstrates how Microsoft technologies such as Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8 can allow to work anywhere with an employee’s Windows 8 computer hosting a corporate virtual machine (VM) protected by BitLocker, while enjoying connectivity to his workplace. In such a context, the Windows 8 Client Hyper-V technology and DirectAccess technologies are used to implement this CoIT scenario.
The guide also provides a mean to automatically build the Windows 8 corporate image and deploy the VM onto the employee personal computer based on the Microsoft Deployment Toolkit 2012 Update 1 (MDT) .
This document is part of a series of documents on Consumerization of IT, and more especially aims at demonstrating the Hyper-V Windows 8 Enterprise Virtual Machine on personal computer scenario in a logical progression.
