Welcome to the Recast Endpoint Management Recap, May 2020 by Gary Blok
Thanks for joining me once again for the Recap, this month was busy with several cool announcements from Microsoft and some other announcements that just created busy work. Moving from Office 365 to Microsoft 365 and the update channel names which take effect in the next couple weeks (more about that later), to a new packaging tool winget. Microsoft is keeping busy while we're stuck at home.
As always, the layout to the post:
That's the idea, a high level overview of things going on that you'll want to be aware of and you can dig into them further on your own. If you're new to this monthly post, you'll want to look back at previous months, so much great content.
Upcoming Events and User Group info:
I'd like to make a plug for the Microsoft Tech Communities. They often have AMAs or "Office Hours" which you can post your questions and Microsoft Staff are monitoring to reply to your posts. This is a great way to get familiar with the Tech Community Boards, start posting your questions and answering others. I've added links to the Tech Communities below next to their corresponding products.
Microsoft has posted a page with a lot of great resources during this time, to help IT professionals, Educators, Families, and Remote Business, along with how Microsoft is helping in the battle on Covid-19 on their Responding to COVID-19 together page.
Microsoft Edge Browser (Based on Chromium Engine): [Landing Page]
Microsoft Defender Advanced Threat Protection - [Resource Hub]
ConfigMgr Tech Preview [What's New Page]
This month I'm trying something different, I'm only listing changes. If you want a more complete list of their tools, check out previous month's posts.
They had a big month last month so it makes sense didn't see many new releases this month.
Check out some of our favorite tools for ConfigMgr, along with several blog posts covering a wide range of areas and ideas to all help with Endpoint Management.
One more note, I do my best to provide Twitter accounts with the blog posts, both to provide credit where credit is due, and so you can then follow them yourselves to stay in the loop as things are coming out and ideas are being discussed on twitter.
