About this course

Course type Essentials
Duration 1 Day

The majority of enterprise and medium-size organisations are considering or already utilising a Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) policy, which will increase the number of Apple users in a Microsoft Windows environment. This places IT Managers under pressure to support the BYOD transition and business strategy moving forward. How will IT Managers mitigate the risk of an increase of Service Desk calls from users trying to use Microsoft Office on a different device? How will business cope with less control of their employees and what devices they use?

During this three-hour seminar, QA's Apple Principal Technologist, Scott Hayes, and Business Applications trainer, Sharon Lee-Sinclair, will explore connecting Apple OS X in Windows and the functionality of Microsoft Office on Apple devices to provide a better understanding of how to integrate these products and programs for an optimal working environment.

Target Audience:

This seminar is intended for IT Managers and Infrastructure Managers who need to communicate or support the use of Apple devices in a Microsoft environment.
