Meet the business hub, a new online resource for managing Windows Phones in the workplace

You know that Windows Phone 8 is great at keeping you connected in your personal life, but did you know that Windows Phone 8 is also great for work?

I’d like to introduce you to the Windows Phone business hub at It’s your one-stop shop for finding out about business-related phone features like hardware-accelerated device encryption for robust security, or built-in Office Mobile apps like Outlook.

The business hub is also the place for IT pros to find the latest technical info on the business and enterprise features of Windows Phone 8—including how Windows Phone 8 works with Office Server products like Exchange, Office 365, and SharePoint; providing security and managing devices; and creating and distributing line-of-business apps and Company Hubs.


Since the launch of Windows Phone 8, we’ve published several downloadable white papers that provide information for IT pros, administrators, and business decision-makers on key business and enterprise feature areas. This list is updated regularly and will continue to grow. Here are a few of our most popular ones:

In the coming months, I’ll be back to blog about specific topics of interest to business users and IT pros, like managing a Windows Phone 8 deployment using Exchange ActiveSync policy settings, or how you can distribute line-of-business applications to employees using Windows Intune and Company Hubs.  If there are specific business-related topics you’d like to see me cover, or you want to provide feedback on our white papers, please email me at
