Microsoft Endpoint Manager Improvements Highlighted at Ignite
Improvements in the Microsoft Endpoint Manager (MEM) management solution were part of Tuesday’s Microsoft Ignite online event.
Remote worker support continued as a big Ignite theme, both in the Nadella CEO keynote talk, as well as in Microsoft’s tech announcements. A few improvements in Microsoft Endpoint Manager (formerly knowns as “System Center Configuration Manager”) fit that theme, although not all of these capabilities are available yet.
Most of the details are covered in this announcement by Corporate Vice Presidents Brad Anderson and Takeshi Numoto.
MEM Virtual Endpoint Support
Perhaps the most interesting MEM feature described is the ability to use it to manage Windows Virtual Desktop endpoints or endpoints that run using “third-party [non-Microsoft] VDI solutions.” It can be done simultaneously with managing “your physical PCs within the same console,” the announcement promised.
