The Microsoft Ignite conference this year was very interesting. With my move to Vancouver, Canada, it was impossible to watch it live. But all the great content is recorded and available on demand.
As a DeviceManager™, Windows Updates is one of the most time consuming tasks, but keeping devices safe and secure is very important. That is why my favorite session at ignite was Managing Windows updates in the cloud (The Blueprint Files). It covers in details how the Windows Update process works, and the different options available when using MEM (CM, Intune or both). Also all the Blueprint Files session at ignite are level 300-400, excellent for deeply technical people.
With the myriad of ways to mange Windows updates, it is often asked how do Windows Server Update Service (WSUS) and Windows Update work anyway? What is the difference in the way that management tools are involved? Take a look at the big picture, then dig into what role the client plays in both WSUS and cloud update management, and some of the key differences in how you manage Windows updates on-premises and in the cloud. Not to mention how you can get the best of both worlds if you are using WSUS today.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I did!
