Workspace ONE UEM Console Releases: SaaS Only
As we continue to deliver quicker time to value (features and fixes), we will be delivering updates to our SaaS customers more frequently. We understand that our on-premises customers typically adopt the updates at a slower pace and as such we are decoupling these releases. This means that a feature or fix delivered to our SaaS environments may not be delivered to on-premises customers in the same timeframe or release. We will strive to deliver multiple on-premises releases over the course of the year.
