iOS 5 in the Enterprise: Develop and Design

The iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad are not just consumer devices. Apple’s popular iOS devices are rapidly spreading through the business market in increasing numbers. In this thorough reference guide, IT professionals will learn from seasoned IT veteran John Welch how to deploy and manage iOS devices in the enterprise.

John uses a refreshing, straightforward approach to teach you how to manage iOS devices. And he covers a wide range of methods, from managing just a handful of devices to dealing with hundreds. You’ll find out when using iTunes for management is good enough and how to get the most out of that simple tool. You’ll also explore what you can do with Apple’s free iPhone Configuration Utility, from setting up applications and provisioning to specifying precisely what users can do with their devices. He’ll show you how to use the iPCU (iPhone Configuration Utility) to install enterprise apps on an iOS device, do extensive management, and distribute profiles via USB, by email, and over the air (OTA). For environments that require large deployments with huge numbers of iOS devices, you’ll get instruction on using SCEP (Simple Certificate Enrollment Protocol). And he’ll take you even further to learn how to use Mobile Device Management (MDM) to push changes out to devices.
