A work-managed device is a device owned by a business and used by an employee for work purposes. This device will typically be used similarly to a personal smartphone, with the exception being that the mobile device management system the device is registered with has the ability to restrict user access to applications and features according to the applied policy.
- [Instructor] In the instance that an Android device…at work in the property of the enterprise,…there are a couple of different solution sets…that can be used.…The first of these being…the work-managed device solution set.…This is a use case where a device is owned by a business…and used by an employee for work-related purposes.…You will typically find that these devices…are used in the same fashion as personal smartphones.…A work-managed device represents a use case…very similar to the work profile solution set…with the exception being that the device…policy controller is in device owner mode…and has control over the whole device.…
This solution set is used by enterprises…when they require tighter control…on access to company data and permitted applications.…It is best to provide enterprise integration…for this use case by including managed…application configuration support in your application.…To be approved by Google with a solution set,…a mobile device management system…has to allow provision using a DPC identifier…
Instructor Jon-Luke West first reviews the key concepts of enterprise mobility management in Android: important APIs, the role of the device administrator, and the types of devices you should plan to target. He reviews the three primary use cases, including bring your own device (BYOD) and corporate-owned single-use (COSU) scenarios. Then he dives straight into the code, showing how to implement three enterprise integration features: managed application configurations, app pinning, and locked task mode. Finally, he shows how to test the features on a managed device.
- Enterprise mobility management (EMM) and mobile device management (MDM)
- Android EMM APIs
- Use cases: BYOD, work-manage devices, and COSU
- Checking restrictions and restriction changes for managed configurations
- App pinning and lock task mode
- Testing enterprise integration features using Test DPC
