Welcome to Recast’s Endpoint Management Recap, December 2023 – by Daniel Engberg


As we turn the final pages of 2023, we can take a moment to reflect on all things ‘endpoint management’ this past year. For me, it’s certainly been fun sharing these monthly recaps with you.

This year’s key highlights include:

  • The long-awaited release of Intune’s deployment service for driver and firmware updates.
  • A new rebranding:
    • Microsoft Endpoint Manager is now Intune
    • Azure AD has been transformed into Entra ID
  • The announcement of the Microsoft Intune Suite.
  • Integration of Winget in Windows Autopilot, enhancing deployment flexibility.
  • Introduction of Windows LAPS as an integrated part of the Windows 11 platform.
  • Microsoft’s shift to a semi-annual release cadence for ConfigMgr.
  • The launch of Windows 365 Switch and Boot.

For a detailed exploration of these milestones, revisit our past recaps here on the Recast Software Blog.

As we eagerly anticipate what 2024 has in store, I wish you a Happy New Year! Let’s meet again on the other side :).
