Traditional PC lifecycle management (PCLM) has been around for decades to manage Windows desktops and laptops. PCLM was conducted on-premises on company infrastructure. It has inherent constraints and limits the flexibility and efficiency of IT admins. Modern management represents the shift in the Windows OS management process to support the delivery of policies, patches, and applications from the cloud.
Mobile devices have been managed via mobile device management (MDM) tools and from the cloud for years. Modern management represents a similar shift in the Windows OS management process to support the delivery of policies, patches, and applications from the cloud. It allows management of Windows anywhere, across any network by leveraging MDM and cloud-based efficiencies – without the need for setting up costly server and network infrastructure.
Unified endpoint management (UEM) allows IT to manage, secure, and deploy corporate resources and applications on any device from a single console. UEM is an evolution of traditional PC lifecycle management (PCLM) and mobile device management (MDM). As users increasingly work remotely from desktops as well as mobile devices, and enterprises incorporate IoT and other new technologies, unified endpoint management has evolved to solve the problems modern IT departments encounter when securing and connecting these environments.
