Introduction

I’m working at a consultancy company called Lumagate, based in Sweden, as a Principal Consultant with Enterprise Mobility. For many years now my passion and focus has driven me forward to where I am today. My intention with this blog is to share my knowledge with the community, making the life of IT Pro’s a bit easier. Most of the content that I write about concentrates around Enterprise Mobility, meaning device management, app distribution and protection in addition to identity.

I was originally born in Denmark, but at early age we moved to Sweden. Beside that my work being one of my interests, I like to work out, watch tv-series and as every one else I like to travel.

  • 70-415 – Implementing a Desktop Infrastructure

Community

What I like the most with working in the IT industry is how the community reach out and help one and another. In my early years of working with IT I had to rely heavily on blog posts, forum posts and what else Google could come up with. Actually, today is no different. But instead of only relying on other have to offer, I try to give back to the community by sharing my knowledge the way I know how to. This is the main reason for why I maintain this blog.

    Hi! I loved your “Uninstall an Application in Software Center with PowerShell” post and am looking to do the exact opposite: install a package (associate the user with an AD group for that package or application on the way) without having the user deal with the App Catalog or Software Center, however we still want the user to be able to go into those consoles after the fact and see the app/package. Have you ever done a post about this installation?
    Would appreciate feedback.

      Hi Erin,

      Have you tried to create a collection with a query membership rule for the AD group, then create a required deployment of an Application (not package) to your collection?

    Have you ever deployed Apple’s Quicktime with Config Manager. We are using SCCM 2012 r2 and need to deploy Quicktime. I have not been successful so far.

    Hello,
    Just wanted to let you know that your guides are the best I’ve worked with!
    I have been around for a “few” years (Over 20…) and throughout my career, I stumbled upon many how-to’s and articles.
    Yours are just excellent. They are simple, fluent and user-friendly, and you can see the efforts and experience put in every one of them.

    Thanks,
    Gilad.
