Autopilot: A Better Way To Handle The Enterprise Device Lifecycle
Before Autopilot, IT admins would have to spend an enormous amount of time creating, managing, and deploying device images in the enterprise enviroment. It's not uncommon for IT admins to spend months creating and testing a golden image for a single model of a laptop – much less maintaining and updating those images.
Autopilot streamlines that process by moving device configuration deployment to the cloud. Instead of IT staff needing to image and deploy devices onsite, businesses can purchase and deliver new hardware straight to the end user. The software deployment and configuration of that new device is automatic.
For the end-user, this process is as simple as powering on a new laptop and following the standard Windows 10 configuration wizard. Once that wizard is started, apps, configurations, policies, etc… are streamed from Azure to run Autopilot to that device.
Recovering and redeploying devices is as simple as resetting Windows 10.
The Autopilot service streamlines hardware deployment and support dramatically. It can reduce time to device deployment, device testing, support costs, and more. Autopilot is a tool that every enterprise should be utilizing – especially in a mixed device environment.
