Ask Microsoft anything about Windows Analytics: September 19th

Looking for ways to save time and reduce the costs associated with deploying, servicing, and supporting Windows 10? Join us for a one-hour Windows Analytics "Ask Microsoft Anything" (AMA) event on Tuesday, September 19th from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 a.m. Pacific Time.

Windows Analytics is a set of solutions that run on Operations Management Suite, and that use telemetry data from the devices in your organization to help you gain valuable insight into the current state of your environment. During our one-hour AMA, members of the engineering and product teams will be standing by to answer your questions about, listen to your feedback on, and help you figure out how to best use Windows Analytics solutions, which include:

  • Upgrade Readiness – Formerly known as Upgrade Analytics, Upgrade Readiness identifies compatibility issues that can block an upgrade to Windows 10, and suggests fixes when they are known to Microsoft. Upgrade Readiness walks you through the discovery and rationalization process until you have a list of computers that are ready to be upgraded.
  • Update Compliance – Currently available as a public preview, Update Compliance provides a unified view of Windows Update and Windows Defender Antivirus compliance for all the Windows 10 devices in your organization, regardless of what management solution you use. This enables you to keep devices secure and up-to-date, track protection and threat status, monitor the status of update deployments, and troubleshoot issues as they arise.
  • Device Health – Also available as a public preview, Device Health helps you detect and remediate end-user impacting issues, such as devices that crash frequently or drivers that are causing device crashes. Additional features will be added soon.
