Microsoft Learning and Microsoft's worldwide Developer & Platform Evangelism (DPE) team are partnering again to help IT organizations understand how to address one of the most pervasive trends in the industry--the "consumerization" of IT. How can IT effectively maintain control and security when users bring their own PCs, slates, and smartphones to work? What about enabling users to leverage social networking (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn) and cloud-based collaboration technologies?

This important Jump Start will help IT learn how to provide the excitement and engagement of consumer technology with the added protection of enterprise-grade security. Organizations should address the consumerization of IT in a way that sparks creativity, encourages collaboration, and promotes innovation—all within the secure walls of an IT ecosystem that safeguards enterprise resources.enable people to leverage their own devices while maintaining security, streamlining management, and cutting costs.

Like all Jump Starts, this course will leverage an engaging, team-teaching approach and will be led by Microsoft Technical Evangelist, David Tesar. David will be joined by several sought-after personalities from Microsoft product teams, including Adam Carter (Bomb), Andy O'Donald and Josh Heller.
