As a response to Covid-19 we’ve seen a number of organisations looking to procure machines for end users who may not have a business-ready device at home. Although we’d recommend a Windows Virtual Desktop (WVD) solution, I thought it might be useful for those considering this option to see how we manage this using Microsoft Intune and Windows Autopilot.
If one of your resolutions for 2020 is to save yourself more time, then Windows Autopilot and White Glove deployment might get you off to a flying start!
Windows Autopilot, (available from Version 1903), enables organisations to easily provision new devices by leveraging the preinstalled OEM image and drivers, with a simple process that can be performed by the end user to get their device business-ready. Autopilot can also be used to reset, repurpose and recover devices - great for those looking to reduce infrastructure management time and simplify processes.
