Local profile optimization?

Hi All,

Really do need some guidance here, just started a new job for a pretty big healthcare organisation. We have everything on-prem with very bespoke clinical systems. We currently have re-directed profile which move with the user wherever there go. We are introducing 365/Cloud system and will need a local profile solution in place for this. In the past we have a had rule of local profile getting deleted after 2 weeks on devices(back in xp days). We are aiming to have local profiles in place, need to take into account shorter log in times for users, quick accessibility for healthcare staff who need to log in and do not have time for users to wait to log in due to nature of there jobs. We understand we are in a situation where one size does not fit all.....but we need some advice on how we can optomize local profiles for it to cater for our needs. Any advice will be of great help and help us achieve our goals.

Hello @MRQ7451-9691,

The best option would be to abandon the OnPrem infrastructure, both for performance, security, and potential issues. Since the users will be on M365, they can already work with all their information online (Onedrive), even User folders files (https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/office/back-up-your-documents-pictures-and-desktop-folders-with-onedrive-d61a7930-a6fb-4b95-b28a-6552e77c3057)

The cloud option for roaming profiles (settings, applications, etc) , the way would be the Enterprise roaming profiles:
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/devices/enterprise-state-roaming-enable

For the logon, I would recommend a Hybrid solution, you can see further here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory/devices/hybrid-azuread-join-managed-domains

All in all, if you are planning "the modern way" you are looking into:
- Logon servers in cloud (Azure AD) which would reduce downtimes and logon times
- Cloud Enterprise Roaming profile (reduced logon times and complexity of deployment)
- Cloud file storage for anywhere access

Regarding compliance and security of data (for example it can be a concern due to health information PII) should not be an issue as Microsoft has one of the highest levels of security and certification to handle private data, with the guarantees and responsability needed. For example for the EU's GDPR: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-au/legal/gdpr

Hope this helps with your question,
