SCM includes the following new features, tools, and capabilities to help you manage product baselines from Microsoft, and other baselines that you can customize to meet the requirements of your organization:
- IT Governance, Risk, and Compliance (IT GRC) baseline information on Microsoft product baselines.
- An improved GPO Backup (folder) feature that provides a more robust import process.
- Simplified setting management to help you manage your product baselines in setting groups, and the Advance View feature that you can use in multiple ways to filter baseline setting information.
- The LocalGPO command-line tool that you can use to back up a domain-based Group Policy Object (GPO) and then apply it to non-domain joined computers in your environment. The new version of this tool also makes it easier to automate this process.
- Other improvements, including a new SCM UI, prepopulated data updates, advanced search, GPO import extensions, export logging, and new compare and merge features.
