Fraser and Bradley kickoff the Deploy 2016 series with an introductory episode about the plans and goals for the series. Since they last did the series in 2014, quite a bit has changed in the iPad deployment area (all for the good). When they were doing the series in 2014, iOS 7 was a few months old, and there still were a lot of gotchas relating to how to scale iPad deployment up to 1000s of units. iOS was also stagnant in terms of its feature set compared to desktop. With the release of iOS 9, device based app assignment, and spread of the device enrollment program to outside of the US, iPad deployments are a lot more complex, but also also simpler.
