MMS 2012 Keynote 2

Rather than multiple posts I'll keep updating this one, so keep refreshing for more detail.

Day Two Keynote - A World of Connected Devices

Microsoft are again very focused in the whole consumerisation of it and being able to use personal devices.

Configuration Manager and Intune were just mentioned, long with a slight hint at the two products working more closely together.

ConfigMgr will somehow be able to publish apps to the Apple and Android Windows  app stores and direct to devices.
Intune can be used to deploy apps to IOS and Android both app store links and side loading.
Intune can be used used to manage non domain devices, but authenticate them against Active Directory.
This is great for deploying corporate apps to personal devices.

Metro self service centre for ConfigMgr will be coming with the release of Windows 8
Also has service manager integration and device management features (remote wipe lost devices) similar to and windows phone 7

Future vision is that ConfigMgr and Intune will, if not fully merge, work a lot more seamlessly.

UE-V that i've blogged about before is mentioned again and rightly so as it's potentially a killer addition to MDOP.
