The Path to Modernizing Windows Management

Hi all, just wanted to point you all to this web page as it does a really good job explaining Microsoft approach on what management technologies should be used when managing computer in your fleet.

Just a couple of relevant quote are:

  • Domain joined PCs and tablets should continue to be managed with the System Center Configuration Manager client or Group Policy.
  • Group Policy is the best way to granularly configure domain joined Windows PCs and tablets connected to the corporate network using Windows-based tools. Microsoft continues to add Group Policy settings with each new version of Windows

Put simply, Group Policy is still a great way to configure and manage computers in your environment. However, it is no longer the ONLY way Microsoft offeres…

Definitely read the who blog at

Also an interesting read is a similar article that was blogged by fellow Group Policy MVP Darren Mar-Elia at
