Introduction There are so many announcements to keep up with at Ignite, I’ve been trying to stay within my wheelhouse, which has largely been all things App-V. With over 20 years of experience in application packaging, I instinctively track new technologies such as MSIX like a jumping spider tracks a mayfly.

Eliminate Compliance Fatigue with SupTool #SCCM #Azure #MVPHour

For many of my clients, the work of ensuring the health and compliance of the devices in their organization represents a significant portion of their daily IT task load. The sneaky problem with repetitive, low priority tasks is that they’re usually improperly executed – over and over again. The result is only about 85% of SCCM clients are healthy at any given moment. SupTool can eliminate compliance fatigue and significantly improve performance and security across your organization while working in the background to maintain near 100% SCCM client health.
