One of the more popular acronyms in technology these days is BYOD, or bring your own device. This is a common term used when dealing with use cases where an individual brings their own Android device to work. Google defines this as the work profile solution set, where an enterprise controls a self-contained user and data space on the personal device.

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
