I was recently in the greater Madison Business Journal talking about Modern Desktop and its impact on end user computing.

- Economically Modern Desktop is drastically simpler to deploy and maintain since PCs are delivered directly to end users and are more akin to mobile devices than the traditional system.
- Every environment with SCCM today should at minimum have co-management and conditional access enabled, since it facilitates some of Modern Desktop’s properties, such as protecting cloud applications from unsafe systems.
