With UCMS for Windows PCs and servers can be managed, keeping software up-to-date, setting configuration and security policies, and monitoring system status while giving employees access to University applications on the devices that they choose.
Windows specific benefits include:
- Dynamic OS deployments
- Self service software deployments
- Remote software deployments
- Software updates
- Compliance and security settings
- Hardware and software inventory reports
- Windows updates
- Remote support
- Windows computer connected with EAD
- Windows 7 or above
Windows and software updates are deployed once a month after sufficient testing and validation has been completed. This allows the University to keep all machines updated and protected from security vulnerabilities. Updates are sent silently to workstations to eliminate disruption to clients. These updates are communicated through the IT bulletins page.
UBC Software Center is available for Windows-based UBC staff and faculty devices with an Enterprise Active Directory (EAD) account accessing the UBC network. Software Center makes it easy to quickly install university-approved software onto workstations without having to submit a ticket through Desktop Services. Learn more about Software Center.
