Quite a feat, for sure. But, considering that System Center Configuration Manager now rolls out updates in rings much like Windows 10 does, all endpoints will be updated eventually. However, the bigger feat here is that client installation success has skyrocketed due to better designed code. Managing endpoints can only be successful when the endpoint has management software installed. In the past, client health has been an issue, keeping the ConfigMgr client from achieving a 100% success rate and causing undue burden on support personnel trying to troubleshoot failed implementations.
Bigger attention on improved and intelligent client installation is what makes 50 million managed devices a is a true milestone.
