EUCEUC: Advanced Integrations - 2019 Day 1 Getting Started - Workspace ONE Access & Workspace ONE UEM SaaS Instance

Getting Started - Workspace ONE Access & Workspace ONE UEM SaaS Instance

Part 1 Overview

The scenario you will be working with this week is a company called euc-livefire. They are a very dynamic organisation and have traditionally been on-premise but have recently moved into the cloud without truly understanding the challenges and would like a simple solution from an end-user perspective.

The organisation has key drivers around security, availability, mobility, and business continuity. They have an existing infrastructure with multiple authentication services such as OKTA  and active Directory and would like to bring these together from the end-user perspective.

The organisation has recently started considering moving from office 2013 to Office 365 and sees this as another cloud resource the users would potentially need to connect to.

End-users require consumption of their applications across all platforms and recently have commented on how difficult it is to remember all the access portals and passwords.

As a consulting team our objective this week will be to integrate all existing resources both On-premise and SaaS into a singular simple solution for end users.
