- SpecializedAdministrators can manageWindows 10devices fully managed by BlackBerry UEM:Windows 10devices from theUEMmanagement console after users activate their devices withUEM. Administrators can view and manage activated devices through a unified interface. Users can also use theBlackBerry UEM Self-Serviceconsole 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 withUEM, you can also easily deploy apps from the app store or enterprise apps (for example,BlackBerry Access,BBM Enterprise, andBlackBerry Workspaces) to users from theUEMmanagement console.
- CorporateAdministrators can use eitherWindows 10devices managed byBlackBerry UEMandMicrosoftSCCM (in coexistence):BlackBerry UEMandMicrosoftSCCM solutions exclusively to manageWindows 10devices in their organization or they can adopt theWindows 10management features ofBlackBerry UEMtogether with the group policies of SCCM.UEMand 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 manageWindows 10devices but still want users to access your organization's intranet and work email, users can installBlackBerry Access for Windowsand activate it using aBlackBerry Dynamicsaccess key.
