- Microsoft Intune and Azure Active Directory (i.e. Enterprise Mobility + Security)
- Microsoft Store for Business
- Office 365
- Supporting "bring your own device" (BYOD) and "choose your own device" (CYOD) scenarios.

What exactly is modern management?
Modern management is about using a modern, cloud-based approach to manage Windows 10 devices of any form factor—PC, tablet, phone, HoloLens, Surface, Surface Hub, etc. It involves moving typical IT processes and solutions from on premises to the cloud; for example, to Windows Autopilot for provisioning, MDM for PC management, Windows Update for Business for servicing and Windows Analytics for reporting. It's also about providing users with the flexibility to use their own personal devices and be productive on those devices while also enabling IT to protect corporate assets and keep management costs low.
