  • What are the customer scenarios?

    The following are example customers that are an amalgam of the most common customer scenarios that we encounter. If the examp le customer

    does not match your environment precisely, that is okay because between all three of the customer examples, we should cover m ost of the of the

    situations any customer could face.

    We have named these customer scenarios Enterprise Managed, Locally Managed, and Cloud Managed based on the primary distribution and update

    management solution leveraged by each scenario.

    Call to action

    Please review the three scenarios and decide which one best fits your current environment. Lead with this scenario and feel f ree to add portions

    from other scenarios. For example, your scenario might be almost exactly like the Enterprise Managed scenario, except you allow Mac users to

    configure their own software. You would follow all the guidance from Enterprise Managed except when it comes to Mac. Check Locally Managed and

    Cloud Managed if the other ways to deploy Mac clients described there would fit your needs better.

    The Enterprise Managed scenario

    Enterprise Managed represents large to very large organizations, and has tens of thousands of employees distributed globally. The work force is

    leveraging nearly every single technology that exists, ranging from desktops to notebooks to tablets, software distribution t ools, and virtual

    environments like Remote Desktop Services and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure. The IT department manages the client software u sing software

    management tools such as System Center Configuration Manager, and has dedicated teams that administer the companys Active Di rectory

    components such as Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS), Group Policy, etc.

    If this scenario represents your organization, then continue to read here.

    The Locally Managed scenario

    Locally Managed represents medium to large organizations, with a range of thousands of employees up to possibly ten thousand. They may have

    offices in multiple countries, but is not considered to be globally distributed. Employees are generally located out of a cen tralized office in the

    country, with limited small offices throughout. The work force is primarily leveraging newer productivity software, including some VDI, but the IT

    department does not have software distribution tools to manage client software. IT Administrators leverage a Distributed File System (DFS) and

    network shares to host installation packages that end users will install, and utilize custom scripts and batch files for auto mated deployments for end

    users as they do not have local admin rights. They do not have dedicated IT teams to specific products, and instead leverages shared teams that

    manage multiple technologies of the IT environment such as Active Directory Domain Services (AD DS), Active Directory Federat ion Services (AD FS),

    Group Policy, etc.

    If this scenario represents your organization, then continue to read here.

    The Cloud Managed scenario

    Cloud Managed represents generally small businesses, who typically have a range in the hundreds of employees who are generally located out of a

    small centralized office in a single country; however, they may have smaller remote offices throughout the country. The work force leverages the

    newest productivity devices and software on the market, as having a smaller organization allows for more rapid adoption of ne w technology. They

    have a small IT team that manages the entire organizational IT environment technologies such as Active Directory Domain Servi ces (AD DS), Azure

    Active Directory Password Sync, GPO, etc. The IT team does not have software distribution tools to manage client software, an d no Distributed File

    System (DFS) exists. Network shares are leveraged for installing software, and users have administrative privileges on their client devices. The IT

    team provides batch files or scripts for end users to automate deployments.

    If this scenario represents your organization, then continue to read here.
