It's pretty clear Microsoft will support Group Policy while introducing Group Policy-like functionality into other products.
Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) October 26, 2012
In an InfoWorld article posted October 24, 2012, author J. Peter Bruzzese pondered the future of Group Policy and traditional IT infrastructure in a Windows 8 and Windows RT Microsoft environment . He turned to Jeremy Moskowitz, Group Policy MVP and Founder of PolicyPak Software for input into this world.
Mr. Bruzzese questioned whether a full shift away from traditional management of devices as a result of the BYOD movement is in the future, as well as if this in turn means that group policy is dead. In response, Moskowitz replied: “It’s pretty clear Microsoft will support Group Policy while introducing Group Policy-like functionality into other products.”
IT Pros and others looking for further information on this topic can download the free “What IT Pros Need to know about Windows 8” whitepaper, authored by Jeremy Moskowitz, from the PolicyPak website. This whitepaper not only shows IT admins the differences between editions of Windows 8, but also the pitfalls and upsides of running Windows 8 on their own desktop as their own management machine.
