Windows 10 represents a major upgrade from Windows 7. For enterprises, it provides a substantial improvement in the ability to manage Windows devices. However, comprehensive endpoint management requires additional capabilities beyond what Windows 10 alone can provide. In particular, new security, control, and usability requirements must be met. These changes are driving the change from legacy client management tools (CMTs) to next-generation unified endpoint management (UEM) solutions.
Recently, Gartner issued a report on “Critical Capabilities for UEM Tools” that compared vendors across the most important use cases and on the ability to meet critical capabilities necessary in UEM solutions.
