Leverage Group Policy in order to efficiently manage policy across your enterprise. Centralize control.

If you are not using Group Policies (GPOs) to centrally manage O/S configurations and application settings in your enterprise, then you are doing a lot of extra and unnecessary work. With GPOs and the newer features of Windows Server 2008, you can easily manage configurations of computer groups including O/S behavior, registry settings, security policies, logon scripts, preferences and much more. You will significantly reduce total cost of ownership and policy management challenges. Windows Server 2008 R2 GPO has many improved features, including the long-desired ability to push registry changes, as well as map drives, among others.
