android docs

Offering training & consultancy on mobility strategy, product selection & validation, implementation, deployment, GMS certification, product support, training, and more, I help organisations around the world succeed with Android in enterprise.

Iโ€™ve dedicated over a decade to Android, more than half of that catered towards enterprise building, deploying, and supporting hundreds of thousands of managed Android devices as an ecosystem product leader and Certified Android Enterprise Expert. Organisations trust me for my in-depth product & solution knowledge, broad ecosystem experience across OEMs, EMMs, solution providers, and my open & transparent approach to education and training.

Get in touch with me to discuss how I can make modern management simpler, enhance corporate security, and boost productivity for you and your organisation, partners, and/or customers.

What I do

Whether you've found me through the content I've published, a referral, or just stumbled upon my website out of the blue, here are some of the things I do.

Documentation & resources

If you're just getting started with Android Enterprise, or looking to brush up on some of the finer nuances of the platform, I provide in-depth & easy to understand documentation across a range of topics within the Android Enterprise ecosystem absolutely free of charge.

I've published over 100 docs and FAQs to date, and add to and/or update my content on a regular basis.

Take a look at some of the latest docs, or head on over to /android to dive into the full library.

Community support

On most days of the week you'll find me contributing to one of three main communities:

  1. The Android Enterprise Customer Community
  2. The Mobile Pros expert community (co-founder)
  3. LinkedIn

I pop up occasionally in other places, but you'll always find me in the above, where I contribute several hours a week towards partner, peer, and customer questions & issues, publish new and interesting news and/or viewpoints on topics in the ecosystem, and help out wherever else I can.

Consultancy

If you're looking for expert help, I offer consulting services across the whole Android ecosystem, not limited to:

  • Product selection and validation
  • EMM deployments, migrations, healthchecks, risk assessments
  • Environment troubleshooting & deployment support
  • OEM, EMM, MSP subcontracting
  • GMS certification

Whether you're an organisation deploying devices, an EMM integrating the Android Enterprise solution set, an OEM bringing enterprise-first devices to market, or anything else, I can probably help.

Product validation

I work with EMMs and OEMs across the ecosystem to review, validate, and improve their Android Enterprise products and services. On any given month I receive access to a new EMM platform to review, or an Android device (consumer, rugged, dedicated, bespoke) to put through its paces.

Described as Android Enterprise Recommended testing on steroids, my product validations have been used in sales decks the world over to demonstrate a partner's ability to execute on Android across all major EMMs, OEMs, or other vendor solutions.
