You've just purchased and activated your EMS licenses. What do you do next? Over the next few months I will publish posts outlining the various features than you have unlocked - but what are they? What Azure services can you now consume?
Let's have a look. Log on to the Azure Portal
See what happens, for example, when you try to create a Virtual Machine. You are not allowed.
You require a paid Azure subscription in order to provision the storage for the VM. Microsoft make it very easy for you to add a subscription at any time.
So what can features can we implement - here is a taste of what is to come?
Software as a Service - our Azure Active Directory Premium license allows us to present unlimited number of applications to our users. Note that there are currently 2459 applications in the Azure gallery (and rising fast).
(Edit as suggested by Simon in the comments below).
Remember you can use Cloud App Discovery to find out what cloud apps are already in use in your organization.
Self-service password reset (bi-directional).
And let's not forget about Microsoft Intune for device and application management. This has a separate Portal.
In the coming months I will blog in detail about these features and more. EMS will be my focus for 2015.
