Android devices are now everywhere. Tablet is the new laptop and everybody in your company has a smartphone. We also find Android in non mobile environments like interactive kiosk, infotainment systems, ...
How can we identify, manage and configure those devices?
Even if Android use a linux kernel, it is very different from a GNU/Linux system, the C library is not fully POSIX, the filesystem hierarchy is not standard, and most of the configuration is done through a Java API and sqlite files.
However those challenges can be solved. In this talk we will see how robust and well known technologies like CFEngine and Rudder can help you to manage those new devices.
