Microsoft last year announced Windows AutoPilot, a new set of features powered by cloud-based services that simplifies the deployment and management of new Windows 10 PC’s along with enhancements to Mobile Device Management and new Device Health features in Windows Analytics. Lenovo last week announced that it has become the first Microsoft OEM PC partner to announce support for Windows Autopilot.
In a statement to Neowin, HP has now announced that they will be bringing seamless deployments of Windows 10 through AutoPilot on HP PCs in the Fall.
“We recently completed a successful pilot with a large customer and simplified the PC setup so it’s as simple as turning on a smartphone for the first time. By combining HP DaaS with AutoPilot and Azure Active Directory Premium, we can streamline the out-of-the box PC experience for our customers, while establishing a secure endpoint when they first power on.”
So far, Microsoft, HP and Lenovo are the only three OEMs who have signed up for this Windows AutoPilot program. I hope more Windows OEMs join this program to make the deployment process easier for IT admins.
