Last week was our first-ever virtual VMworld. And what a week it was! It was invigorating to see all the conversations going on through the week (even if we couldn’t meet in person), as well as hearing all the new innovations coming out. In case you missed the Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) and Windows 10 modern management announcements, be sure to check out our blogs about what’s new in UEM and Windows 10.
As with previous years, there are so many sessions – it’s impossible to make all of them. This year, with so many sessions available at any given time both live and on-demand, we know there was probably a session (or two) you may have missed. (I know I did!)
Now that all the sessions are available to view at any time through the VMworld portal, we thought it might be helpful to highlight a few sessions you may want to check out about modern management for Windows 10. From customer panels and demos to in-depth deep dives, below are our top five sessions to check out.
Everyone conceptually knows that a cloud-first management strategy is necessary for companies to transform, but what does such a strategy look like? What steps should you take? We sat down with three of our customers for an hour and discussed their experiences with Windows 10 modern management. They shared valuable lessons learned and guidance for your own transformation.
Hear from our customers:
Traditional group policy object (GPO) deployment requires admins to sift through thousands of policies and requires devices to be joined to the domain. Although powerful, it is limiting due to its time-intensive nature and dependency on on-premises infrastructure. As more organizations adopt modern management and embrace the cloud, what are your realistic options for policy management? This session talks about Baselines in VMware Workspace ONE, Workspace ONE AirLift and the capabilities that will allow you to break free from on-premises infrastructure without compromising security.

Want a Windows 10 zero-touch, or drop-ship, device provisioning experience for your users but don’t know where to start? This session goes into everything you need to know about drop-ship provisioning, quickly populating your enterprise app catalog, and exploring other deployment best practices. Modernizing deployment can be challenging and overwhelming, with many dependencies on other technologies – here we help you learn how to make drop-ship provisioning a reality.

Cloud-first management is necessary for Windows modernization, and Workspace ONE offers just that for Windows 10. But what does it look like? How does it work? This demo showcases some of the many capabilities Workspace ONE provides for Windows 10 management from native MDM configuration to cloud-based GPOs, baselines, Win32 app lifecycle, OS patch automation, vulnerability management and more (this isn’t a full session – but where else can you see all these great features in less than nine minutes?).
Want to manage and secure your Windows 10 endpoints? With Workspace ONE UEM and Intelligence as well as Carbon Black, you have a complete management and security approach that allows you to manage, protect,and mitigate risks.
The Next Event on Transitioning to Modern Management is On-Demand!
VMworld 2020 may have come to a close but it doesn’t stop there. We have so many more things to bring you all whether you’re just beginning your journey into modern management, investigating or further down that road.
Shortly after VMworld we hosted a live webinar titled The Cloud Exodus: Future Ready Management and Security for Windows Anywhere. Our team of experts discussed the key reasons to move to a cloud-first management and security strategy, steps you can take to make this transition and examples of how others have made the move. The webinar is now available on-demand. Register now and find out how you can make the move too!
