Computacenter one of six launch partners for new Microsoft offering
UK reseller and services giant Computacenter is among the first global partners for Microsoft's newest offering, Microsoft Managed Desktop (MMD). The new scheme provides corporate customers with the option of having Microsoft manage their Windows 10 devices. MMD works on a monthly subscription basis and offers device-as-a-service (DaaS), Microsoft 365 Enterprise (a bundle that includes Windows 10 Enterprise, Office 365 and Enterprise Mobility and Security), cloud-based device management and monthly feature and security updates. Microsoft did not specify which devices are capable of running MMD, only that they must meet a "specification and runtime quality bar". However, Karagounis told tech site ZDNet that initial qualifying devices will be Surface PCs only, but that devices from Dell, HP and other PC manufacturers will soon be offered as options too.
