Windows Intune, Autopilot, and Ivanti User Workspace Manager
The Cloud is far more than just a datacenter in the sky. Cloud technologies and platforms enable a multitude of new ways to work and, for IT, new ways to deliver IT services to end users. Microsoft’s recent introduction of Windows Autopilot is a new example of how the Microsoft Cloud is evolving to support these new workstyles, and of the changing role of IT in the cloud era.
For many users, the traditional route to work computing is that IT orders computer equipment, configures it and delivers it to them. It’s often a week or more before a new employee has their laptop set up and running in most organizations. And what happens when they need to upgrade or replace that laptop? The employee is back where he started, waiting several days (or more) and possibly visiting IT once or twice while they set up and migrate applications and data to the new laptop.
This is where Windows Autopilot and Intune come in. When IT pre-registers any new Windows 10 device, that device will be automatically enrolled in both of these cloud-based services when first switched on by their new owner and connected to the Internet. Autopilot will present the user with a logon tailored to their organization, and will allow that user to log on using the account pre-assigned to them by IT. Further, if the laptop is pre-built with Windows 10 Professional it will be automatically upgraded and licensed for Enterprise.
