MJFChat: Modern management using MDM services and Intune


You can find a transcript of the audio, here.

We’ve started a new, twice-monthly interview show on Petri.com that will cover topics of interest to our tech-professional audience. We are calling this show “MJFChat.”

In my role as Petri’s Community Magnate, I will be interviewing a variety of IT-savvy technology folks. Some of these will be Petri contributors; some will be tech-company employees; some will be IT pros. We will be tackling various subject areas in the form of 30-minute audio interviews. I will be asking the questions, the bulk of which we’re hoping will come from you, our Petri.com community of readers.

We will ask for questions a week ahead of each chat. Readers can post their suggested questions in the designated “MJFChat” area in our Petri.com forums. Once the interviews are completed, we will post the audio and associated transcript in the forums for readers to digest at their leisure.

Our next MJFChat, scheduled for Monday October 14, is between me and Jeremy Moskowitz, a 15-year Microsoft MVP, Founder and Chief Technology Officer of MDMandGPanswers.com and PolicyPak Software. The general topic of our chat is modern management using MDM services and Intune. We want you to submit your best questions ahead of our chat here in the forums.

Moskowitz is ready to explain how an MDM service like Intune help organizations modernize their device management; how to augment and add to an on-prem infrastructure for more power; and how to roll out and troubleshoot MDM and Intune.

Moskowitz has a new book out (with a meaty, Modern title): MDM: Fundamentals, Security, and the Modern Desktop: Using Intune, Autopilot, and Azure to Manage, Deploy, and Secure Windows 10. It details how It pros can configure settings around device-management without having to use Group Policy requiring on-premises domain-joined services.

If you’ve got MDM questions, Moskowitz will likely have the answers. If there are any specific topics or scenarios you’d like him to cover, make sure to chime in ahead of time.

Also: If you know someone you’d like to see interviewed on the MJFChat show, including yourself, send me a note at [email protected]. (Let me know why you think this person would be an awesome guest and what topics you’d like to see covered.) We’ll take things from there….
