Description

Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager helps IT manage PCs and servers, keeping software up-to-date, setting configuration and security policies, and monitoring system status while giving employees access to corporate applications on the devices that they choose. When Configuration Manager is integrated with Microsoft Intune, you can manage corporate-connected PCs and Macs along with cloud-based mobile devices running Windows, iOS, and Android, all from a single management console.

The Technical Preview includes support for Windows 10 with existing Configuration Manager features, as well as, additional enhancements for operating system deployments, software update management, device management, and more.

Technical Previews are early pre-release builds. Many of the features and scenarios are still in development. As such, this preview is not intended for production environments, production labs, nor full evaluations.
