Microsoft on What’s new with Microsoft Intune and System Center Configuration Manager @ Ignite 2017


Organizations are continuing to experience an increasing number of devices and cloud services that are being used by their employees. While this allows people to achieve more at work, it also requires IT to enable and support new and more complex scenarios with the same budget and resources. Organizations are looking for a solution that allows them to manage their users, various device platforms, and different types of apps using an integrated, modern platform. We are excited to announce new features in Microsoft Intune to expand its unified endpoint management (UEM) capabilities. These improvements include conditional access enhancements across all platforms, integration with Jamf for macOS device compliance, a new and unique co-management capability with System Center Configuration Manager (ConfigMgr) for modern Windows 10 management, and more.

Microsoft 365

Microsoft 365 is designed to enable a modern workplace for employees and a new approach for IT to simplify management, improve security, and lower costs. You can read more about this new approach in Brad Anderson’s Microsoft 365 powered device blog post and our latest Mechanics video.

One of the key elements of Microsoft 365 powered device is the ability to modernize the deployment and management of Windows 10 and Office 365 ProPlus. We have been regularly adding new modern management features in Intune since the release of Windows 10. Some of recent improvements include the ability to deploy Office 365 ProPlus, BitLocker management, integration with Windows Update for Business, and more. We are also working on new features including the ability to run PowerShell scripts on Windows 10 devices using Intune Management Extension, new Windows 10 MDM settings, and enhanced support for Windows AutoPilot, Windows Defender ATP, Windows Store for Business, and Surface Hub.

While there are many benefits of modern management, most organizations are still using an on-premises Windows Server Active Directory (AD) and System Center Configuration Manager (ConfigMgr) to manage their Windows devices. Based on conversations with our customers, we heard that until now, it wasn’t always easy to move to modern management. Some customer scenarios require the ConfigMgr agent, and there are also Windows 7 devices that need to be managed. Customers also use deeply integrated partner or homegrown solutions for ConfigMgr, and not to mention the complexity of planning and switching from traditional to modern management with existing IT systems, organizational structures, and processes. Many organizations were looking for a more simplified and manageable way to transition from ConfigMgr and AD to a modern management approach with Intune and Azure AD. We are excited to make this possible with a new and unique feature of ConfigMgr and Intune called co-management.
