Overview of Android Phone and Tablet Integration
Android Smartphone Integration ConsultingGoogle's Android operating system powers about two-thirds of the world's smartphones and is an integral part of the modern BYOD (Bring-Your-Own-Device) style of computing. When properly integrated, Android phones and tablets seamlessly extend the reach of Microsoft's major software platforms including Windows Server, Exchange Server, SQL Server, SharePoint, Microsoft Teams, Skype for Business and Lync, Office and Office 365, Power BI, the Microsoft Dynamics product family, and Windows 10. Microsoft also supports the latest versions of the Android OS with the mobile device management (MDM) and mobile application management (MAM) capabilities of Microsoft Intune, which expands the capability of System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM).

For system administrators, integrating Android phones and tablets with Windows environments presents special challenges compared to integrating Apple iPhones because various Android phone manufacturers use different default configuration settings and add different software utilities which sometimes interfere with important Windows operations such as ActiveSync. Typical challenges encountered when incorporating Android devices into your Windows-based ecosystem include Exchange synchronization, Windows Active Directory configuration and replication, connecting Androids with various email hosting services, implementing remote access and VPN, configuring firewall appliances, migrating mailboxes, activating and decommissioning devices, resolving IP address conflicts, troubleshooting problems with printing, carrying out timely disaster recovery, and setting up efficient Wi-Fi solutions.

Progent's seasoned team of IT consultants and subject matter specialists have years of experience providing online and onsite support for organizations of all sizes who want to integrate Android phones into their information networks so that users can communicate, collaborate, and produce. Progent has the range of skills to resolve technical problems that span multiple vendors and that entail a mix of legacy and current information technology. Progent offers affordable remote consulting to assist you with any and all facet of designing, deploying, managing and troubleshooting your BYOD solution. Progent can provide occasional, as-needed support to help you resolve especially challenging technical problems, or Progent can provide comprehensive outsourced or co-sourced project management services to help you complete major IT initiatives. Progent can help with local, cloud-centric, or hybrid networks and can provide expertise with operating systems, applications, management tools and hardware infrastructure. Progent also offers customized group or individual training to help you manage and operate Android phones and tablets securely and productively.

Integrating Android Devices with Microsoft Applications
Microsoft has developed a wide selection of client Android apps available for free download from Google Play. These apps extend the capabilities of Microsoft's major platforms and utilities to Android phones and tablets and include Office and Office 365, SharePoint, Microsoft Teams, Skype for Business, Dynamics CRM, Power BI, Intune, Remote Desktop, Cortana, and many others. The functionality and compatibility of these apps vary based on the Android OS version, the device manufacturer, and the Microsoft application itself.

Common Android Integration Issues Addressed by Progent
Many of the most common problems associated with Android and Windows integration can be resolved with a quick phone call and involve selecting the right choices in Android and/or Microsoft configuration menus. Other problems involve legacy technology and are essentially intractable and require a new Android device and/or a migration to a current version of Microsoft software in order to get the features you want. When solutions require knowledge of Androids, Microsoft software, and, for instance, a Barracuda load balancer appliance, Progent's breadth of knowledge and hands-on experience can save you time and money by turning a long-term headache into a quick fix.
