1:45 – 2:45 – Windows Device Identity – Jason Sandys

3:00 – Wrap-up Q&A

A Holistic Approach to ConfigMgr Client and Server Health – For ConfigMgr admins and operation teams the struggle for better ConfigMgr health is very real. The harsh truth is that unless you are managing a small lab with like 50 clients, you are very likely to never reach 100 percent client health (sorry). There will always be machines that simply will not fully cooperate for one reason or another. In this session, you learn about techniques and solutions to improve the number of health clients in your environment, as well as making sure the server-side cooperate as well.

Software Updates – Behind the Scenes! Meghan will dive deep into the bowels for WSUS to help you understand how the WSUS hot dogs are made. Bring your questions!

Windows Device Identity – A session to discuss the current state of Windows devices and their identities including when to use each, why to use each, and the recommendations from Microsoft. Current gaps and the road map ahead will also be discussed.
