Microsoft is starting to roll out its Desktop Analytics service as of today, October 16. Desktop Analytics — formerly known as Windows Analytics — is meant to provide IT professionals with update-readiness details about their managed Windows endpoints.
Desktop Analytics provides information about companies endpoints, applications and drivers so they can assess compatibility with the latest Windows feature updates and receive mitigation recommendations about them. The service also provides analytics about users’ line-of-business applications. Desktop Analytics is integrated with System Center Configuration Manager.
