Cloud Workplace Meetup 1/2018 Recap

Despite thunderstorms and pouring rain, over 30 people found their way to the first Cloud Workplace Meetup, which took place in Bern on June 8, 2018!

Hendrik Terhar, the Business Group Lead Microsoft 365, from Microsoft Switzerland, presented the Microsoft 365 vision and showed how Artificial Intelligence (AI) can be used to empower employees and make information profitable.

In the second part, Reto Metzler, responsible for internal IT at isolutions ag, introduced cloud-based deployment using Windows AutoPilot. A central element here is zero touch deployment, which can be used to assign a device to a user at the time of ordering. When the device is started for the first time, it is reset to the factory settings of Microsoft, the software is distributed and the policies are applied. The device is ready for use within minutes and has all user-specific settings.
