Introduction to 
Windows 10
 deployment with 
BlackBerry UEM

Organizations across various industries are including 
Windows 10
 tablets and laptops in their mobility strategy planning. Currently, they might use traditional methods such as 
Microsoft
 System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) or other client management tools to manage 
Windows 10
 devices, while 
iOS
 and 
Android
 smartphones and tablets are managed with another MDM solution. To manage 
Windows 10
iOS
, and 
Android
 devices in a unified management console, you can use 
BlackBerry UEM
To support 
Windows 10
 devices, 
BlackBerry UEM
 provides multiple deployment options and scenarios:
  • Specialized 
    Windows 10
     devices fully managed by BlackBerry UEM:
     Administrators can manage 
    Windows 10
     devices from the 
    UEM
     management console after users activate their devices with 
    UEM
    . Administrators can view and manage activated devices through a unified interface. Users can also use the 
    BlackBerry UEM Self-Service
     console to perform simple administrative actions (for example, wipe work data, locate a lost device, activate new devices, or generate access keys for BlackBerry Dynamics apps). When devices are activated with 
    UEM
    , you can also easily deploy apps from the app store or enterprise apps (for example, 
    BlackBerry Access
    BBM Enterprise
    , and 
    BlackBerry Workspaces
    ) to users from the 
    UEM
     management console.
  • Corporate 
    Windows 10
     devices managed by 
    BlackBerry UEM
     and 
    Microsoft
     SCCM (in coexistence):
     Administrators can use either 
    BlackBerry UEM
     and 
    Microsoft
     SCCM solutions exclusively to manage 
    Windows 10
     devices in their organization or they can adopt the 
    Windows 10
     management features of 
    BlackBerry UEM
     together with the group policies of SCCM. 
    UEM
     and SCCM can co-exist: devices can be enrolled and managed by both solutions simultaneously.  
  • Unmanaged devices (for personal devices, contractors, or external parties):
     If you don't want to manage 
    Windows 10
     devices but still want users to access your organization's intranet and work email, users can install 
    BlackBerry Access for Windows
     and activate it using a 
    BlackBerry Dynamics
     access key. Administrators can generate access keys for users from the 
    UEM
     management console, and if allowed, users can generate them from the 
    BlackBerry UEM Self-Service
     console. Any device can activate 
    BlackBerry Dynamics
     apps, even if it is not managed. For more information, see the BlackBerry Access product information and BlackBerry Workspaces product information.
