Microsoft unveiled a metric ton of improvements to its business solutions at the Ignite conference. The highlight of which is Endpoint Manager, a new solution designed to simplify IT management.
Redmond showcased many of these new improvements here.
But the aim of this new solution is to simplify and streamline IT management for businesses by bringing together functionality from Intune and the System Center Configuration Manager, which is more commonly known as ConfigMgr.
Endpoint Manager also includes the Device Manager Admin Center and the Desktop Analytics tool.
Microsoft confirms that these features will be available in Endpoint Manager over the next few months. The company is also simplifying the licensing for these products. This, it has done by by making Intune licensing available to ConfigMgr customers.
Another worthy new addition is Microsoft Productivity Score tool, which is designed to provide organizations with insights into how the business is doing in terms of productivity.
This new tool comes with two different experiences — one focuses on employees and how the workforce is collaborating and communicating. While the other one focused on technology, with emphasis on things like permissions, device and app performance, and device settings.
Microsoft also let lose the new Managed Meeting Rooms feature that helps monitor Teams meeting rooms to ensure they are both secured and up-to-date. These can also be proactively monitored by administrators.
Entering private preview, those interested in these capabilities can register their interest.
On the subject of management, the software titan has renamed Desktop App Assure simply to App Assure, bringing this solution to Edge and Windows Virtual Desktop. What this means is that businesses can ask Microsoft to fix any applications that cause issues when moving to WVD.
Just as they can do so for compatibility problems with apps coming from Chrome or Internet Explorer.
