Deploying Windows 10: Automating Deployment by Using System Center Configuration Manager

Looking to use System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) to automate deployment of Windows 10? Join experts Aaron Czechowski and Wally Mead as they step you through it. Windows 10 represents a major paradigm shift for Microsoft and the Windows ecosystem in general as we modernize the platform by introducing “as a service” capabilities. Hundreds of millions of devices are already running Windows 10 today. Businesses are beginning to evaluate the new capabilities of Windows 10, including Windows as a service, as part of their deployment plans. With Windows 7 recently transitioning into extended support, businesses need to begin planning for the future of their Windows operating system environment.

Although there are many aspects to consider in managing a Windows device, one of the essential early stages of the lifecycle is deployment. More than 70 percent of businesses use System Center Configuration Manager for PC management, and that market share continues to grow every quarter. SCCM is an industry leader, and the Operating System Deployment (OSD) feature is one of the most popular and frequently used. The product supports many traditional operating system deployment methods, in addition to newer Windows 10 deployment scenarios, such as in-place upgrade. Join us, and get your questions answered.
