Reduce the Stress of OSD with Adaptiva –  Is the pressure to deploy Windows 10 across your organization stressing you out!? A recent survey found that 64% of IT professionals plan to begin a Windows 10 operating system deployment (OSD) across their enterprises in 2017. Fears over tight migration deadlines, unpredictable costs, and lost productivity can make the move to Windows 10 seem overwhelming, at first.

In this session, Adaptiva will help reduce the stress of OSD by providing automation strategies and best practices that hundreds of enterprises use to deploy secure Windows 10 OS worldwide using SCCM. Learn practical SCCM techniques to deliver massive OSD files faster—without negatively impacting your network and while reducing infrastructure costs and migration timelines. Hear case studies on how some of the largest companies in the world in retail, banking, and engineering are easily moving from legacy BIOS to UEFI and to Secure Windows 10 with Secure Boot, Device Guard, and Credential Guard. You will leave this session with the step-by-step blueprint you need to plan, secure, deploy and maintain Windows 10 in your organization.
