Azure AD For IT Pros: What is in it For Me, and How it Plays With Office 365? Azure AD (AAD) is Microsoft’s player in the cloud identity business: it standardizes authentications and provides access across Microsoft’s, 3rd party (including largest cloud players of today) and your custom developed services.
It connects people, groups, software and devices. With recently added B2B and B2C capabilities to AAD, Microsoft makes another step towards integrating everything and everyone, offering unified and manageable cloud identity for enterprise users, fighting the shadow IT at the same time.
And yes, Azure AD is the magic behind Office 365 identity.
This session will explore different modalities of Azure AD: users and groups management, syncing with Windows Active Directory (on premises), managing applications and cloud services (Microsoft and 3rd party), managing devices and putting it all together. A must attend session for all administrators and IT pros who are in the Cloud Identity business.
