Overview of iPhone and iPad Integration
Smartphone Integration ConsultingApple's iOS-powered iPhones and iPads can be tightly integrated with Windows Server environments that include business-critical applications including Exchange, SharePoint, SQL Server, Microsoft Teams, Skype for Business (formerly Lync Server), Office and Microsoft 365, and Dynamics CRM. iOS devices are also supported by popular Windows desktop clients such as Windows 11, Windows 10 and Windows 8.1 and by Microsoft's popular management tools including System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) and Microsoft Intune.

Unfortunately, building and maintaining a secure and manageable BYOD ecosystem that incorporates iPhones and iPads can be a challenge for IT administrators because of the multiple generations of iOS devices and Microsoft platforms that an organization may be required to support along with the vast array of available network security appliances from Cisco, Barracuda, and many other vendors. Common integration problems involve synchronization, device or software migration, authentication, Windows AD configuration, DNS issues, remote access, Wi-Fi setup, centralized management, sharing, and backup.

Progent's team of more than 100 consultants, technical support specialists, and subject matter experts offers the depth and breadth of knowledge and the real-world experience required to resolve even the most complex issues associated with integrating iPads and iPhones with networks ranging in size from home offices to enterprise systems. Progent can provide cost-effective online assistance to help you plan, configure, and troubleshoot any facet of your mobile integration solution and is available for short-term tasks to help you get past specific technical roadblocks or long-term engagements to help you finish major projects on time and within budget. Progent has expertise in on-premises, cloud-based, or hybrid environments and can help you build or maintain a resilient, secure and efficient network infrastructure that is best suited to your mode of computing. Progent can also provide online and onsite training for individuals or groups to show you how to manage and use your iOS devices in a safe, collaborative environment that maximizes the business value of your information network.

Integrating iPhones and iPads with Microsoft Applications
Microsoft offers a library of free iPhone and iPad client apps, available for downloading from the Apple Store, that allow users to access, manage or secure various Microsoft platforms including the Office 365 suite, SharePoint, Microsoft Teams, Skype for Business, Dynamics CRM, Power BI, Intune, and many others. These client apps offer different levels of functionality and have compatibility restrictions that depend on your version of Apple's iOS and the Microsoft application you want to access.

Progent can help you anticipate and resolve issues with software revisions and can assist you in migrating users to compatible versions of Apple devices and operating systems and Microsoft software platforms. Progent can help you establish realistic expectations for the features available with iPhone and iPad client apps, develop test systems to make sure you can achieve the functionality you need before you embark on a company-wide upgrade, solve data import and export problems, and, when necessary, suggest alternative approaches for achieving your integration goals.

Progent's Microsoft-certified consultants can help you integrate your iPhones and iPads with critical productivity applications and management tools from Microsoft:

Common iPhones Integration Issues
Many of the iPhone and iPad integration problems encountered in Windows environments are technically complex but are so common that they can be resolved by an experienced troubleshooter with a short online session. Others require digging into firewall and VPN configurations, security policies, and co-existence issues with legacy and modern devices and applications. The vast majority of issues can be handled via remote support, saving the costs and delays associated with onsite support. Examples of problems regularly addressed by Progent's veteran online support team include:
  • Configure email and webmail on iPhones to work with Exchange Server
  • Configure ActiveSync
  • Migrate iPhones to a new version of Windows Server
  • Update dialing permissions in Windows Active Directory (AD)

  • Update Barracuda and other firewalls to use a self-signed cert for inbound TLS
