Windows AutoPilot is a cloud-based deployment technology available in Windows 10. It allows to deploy and configure devices over the internet with no interaction as an administrator or IT. It builds on existing modern management technologies like Azure Active Directory and Mobile Device Management to manage and configure devices by automatically enrolling the devices in these solutions at their first bootup, right out of the box.

Deployment of devices with Windows Autopilot enables a number of capabilities for the deployment process and configuration of the devices deployed. These features transform the way that devices are deployed by enabling customization of the first boot experience and providing automated configuration of deployed devices. Windows Autopilot also enables benefits from the modern management solutions used with Windows Autopilot, such as:

  1. Presenting organization branding to users at the first prompt to log in via organization branding configured in AAD
  2. Automatic enrollment in Microsoft Intune or an alternate MDM solution with the configuration of automatic enrollment in AAD
  3. Device configuration, policies, and apps defined by Intune or an alternate MDM solution begin applying to a device immediately upon the first logon, setting up the device for the user to begin working with and using the device

Our objective is being devices configured and ready to work for your users without requiring reimaging of the device, access to on-network resources, or even physical presence in your organization’s buildings or offices.

Project will be considered successful when the deployment will be configured to complete without any additional questions and to bring the user directly to a login prompt.
