These blog post are a ongoing thing the next 3 days. So I will continue to add new blog post content everyday. So stay tuned.
Lets be honest on a big event like Microsoft Ignite there´s a ton of sessions regarding many different areas within the Microsoft product list and the session are a ongoing thing for 4 to 5 days. Amazing job they all are doing.
The second day:
Tuesday 5th of November: Some of those session I was seeing today was about the new Microsoft Endpoint Manager, Windows Autopilot and some Azure AD.
Microsoft Endpoint Manager and Autopilot
Some of the new things I found interesting was the new policy sets (Preview). So now its possible to create a hole set of different MDM/MAM policy´s merge them into one big “policy object”. This makes it easy to get a fast and simple overview on which policy that are related to which device and a super flexible way add or remove new apps and policy settings towards a group of mobile devices. One again Microsoft simplifying it and reduce the amount of clicks and places to configure policy for your devices.

Windows Autopilot makes some cool moves also.
