Based on work with consumers and organizations of all sizes across more than 800 million Windows devices, we have found it easier to deploy Windows 10 when using the powerful intelligence of cloud and machine learning. Since the release of Windows Update on April 10, 2018, we have made massive use of artificial intelligence (AI) to improve the quality and reliability of the release rollout. In the process, we've learned the best way to help provide a positive update experience.
Today, These same lessons are now available through a public preview of Desktop Analytics . , Now available. Desktop Analytics provides the insight and automation you need to efficiently maintain current and current status. Desktop Analytics is a cloud connectivity service that integrates with System Center Configuration Manager and integrates with Microsoft Intune in the near future. With desktop analytics, it's easier to deploy with confidence and keep your PC up-to-date with the latest Windows 10 features your employees need.
"You can use desktop analytics to automate pilot plans to test and validate scenarios before upgrading to all applications and the latest hardware version of Windows 10."

This service provides intelligence to make decisions based on more accurate information about the update preparation. Your Windows client. Together with Configuration Manager, Desktop Analytics is designed to create an inventory of Windows applications that run in your organization and then evaluate application compatibility with the latest feature updates for Windows 10. If your organization's data is connected to a data cloud service that's collected from millions of devices, you can take guesswork and focus on key breakers instead of testing these apps. Historically, viewing the application compatibility with the new Windows release was a time-consuming and tedious human testing process, but now you can automate it with lessons learned on the cloud scale.
Desktop Analytics is a data-driven recommendation that makes it easy to run a successful pilot that represents your entire application and driver assets. You can then use the pilot's health signal to assess your asset readiness and implement an optimized production deployment plan with Configuration Manager.
Jared Spataro, vice president of Microsoft 365, delivered a ring-based approach to the evolution of Windows Analytics, enhanced integration with Configuration Manager, and deployment of state signals through desktop analytics last September
