Primary Use Case
Protect corporate data on devices (Laptops, Desktops, Tablets).
every week 100's of corporate devices lost just at airports and every device got personal/corporate data, its very important to protect such data from unauthorised use, hence is the solution to implement Microsoft Bitlocker Administration and Monitoring (MBAM)
Improvements to My Organization
I delivered three projects where the business does not have any encryption mechanism in place if the company or an employee lost any of the device, there are chances someone could view sensitive data. After the Microsoft BitLocker Administration and Monitoring (MBAM) implementation, in such cases, any unauthorised person will not be able to access the data.
If you already have older version of MBAM in place, there is an option to move existing keys over to new server which is great.
All keys stored centerally in database (SQL), option to have PIN / Enhanced PIN / USB Drives.
Room for Improvement
Microsoft Bitlocker Administration and Monitoring (MBAM) is one of the best solution available in the marekt to protect corporate data

MBAM is the only solution that I have used for encryption.

Well worth and perfect solution specially align with GDPR.
