Two very sought after TechEd Europe sessions are finally available for replay. Delivered by Michael Niehaus, the sessions talk about some very important concepts for changes coming in Windows 10 and the way Windows PCs and devices are both deployed and managed. Michael suggested only today that there had been "technical difficulties" making the session recordings available, but then a few hours later the sessions were posted live.
Windows 10: Deployment
With the upcoming release of Windows 10, there will new and updated ways to deploy Windows. In this session, we’ll review new recommendations for upgrading existing devices using a simple in-place upgrade process, provisioning tools for transforming new devices into ones ready for enterprise use, as well as updates to traditional deployment tools and techniques (ADK and beyond). We’ll also talk about application compatibility, hardware requirements, and other common deployment questions.
Windows 10: Management
Windows 10 continues to add new and improved management technologies, to ensure that Windows continues to be the best – and most flexible – operating system to manage. In this session, we talk about all the changes that are coming, including enhancements to built-in mobile device management protocols, new Windows Store and volume purchase program capabilities, sign-on capabilities with organizational IDs (Azure AD), sideloading and other app deployment enhancements, and new capabilities being added to other existing management technologies (e.g. PowerShell, WMI, etc.)
