With staff working from home, and McConnell Dowell operating in multiple countries, Khuong prepared a business case to implement Windows Autopilot to provision new devices, as well as the SCCM Cloud Management Gateway to manage any Internet connected device, regardless of its location. While preparing the business case, he estimated that MCD could save approximately $72,000 annually by streamlining and automating their Windows 10 provisioning process by using Windows Autopilot. A streamlined, zero touch Windows Autopilot deployment would allow MCD to ship new hardware directly to staff and have them self-onboard without requiring assistance from IT or initial preparation from their third-party vendor. This would drastically reduce the time and effort required to onboard staff to new Windows 10 devices and provide a seamless experience.
Khuong also understood that implementing the SCCM Cloud Management Gateway would allow the team to manage their remote devices over the Internet wherever they were located, and without relying on VPN connectivity. This would allow MCD to deploy software updates, application updates and configuration to keep their Windows 10 fleet up to date and secure anywhere in the world.
