Windows 10 Deployment Best Practices
Lunch Sponsor: Kraft & Kennedy, Inc.
Learn from our experience in deploying and managing Windows 10 and the latest features from Microsoft, and discover how firms can reduce IT effort, improve reliability and save money.
We’ll address the Windows 10 anniversary update as well as hidden gems in the OS, like free tools to replace third-party apps. We’ll share our experience with new features such as Windows Defender Advance Threat Protection, Device Guard and Credential Guard, and explore the increasing use cases for Application Virtualization (App-V), User Experience Virtualization (UE-V), Microsoft BitLocker Administration and Monitoring (MBAM), Microsoft Advanced Group Policy Management (AGPM) and Microsoft Diagnostics and Recovery Toolset (DaRT). We will also discuss the new Windows as a service model, ensure everyone understands the new licensing options and examine best practices for working with the Office 365 Click-to-Run installation.
