IT gets enhanced UEM capabilities, such as configuration management and software distribution, to manage Windows 10. The 9.0 release also makes it simple to securely deploy and scale AR devices in the enterprise.
“Another new feature touted in AirWatch 9.0 is the ability to manage wearables—especially augmented reality and virtual reality glasses. When you see demos of how these can be used in manufacturing, warehouses, education, healthcare, and similar verticals, you know that these are going to be important soon. (The technology has really come along in the last few years.) Just like mobile devices, once you get more than a few of them you really need some sort of management platform, and that’s where MDM comes in.”

Additionally, the newest version of the AirWatch console features an enhanced user interface, new setup wizards, more granular ways to collect data, new APIs and more to make IT’s job even easier.
