Microsoft: Simplifying transition from Hybrid MDM (ConfigMgr+Intune) to Intune standalone
We have heard repeatedly from our customers who are using System Center Configuration Manager connected with Microsoft Intune (hybrid MDM) that they’d like to move to a cloud-only experience with Intune on Azure. This experience brings many new benefits, such as large scale, unified admin console, RBAC, and more. To help customers easily transition, we’re introducing a new process of moving from hybrid MDM to Intune standalone.
Previously, the move from hybrid MDM to Intune standalone required a one-time authority switch that would move an entire tenant at once and force the admin to reconfigure all settings in Intune, including re-enrolling all devices. Our new approach will allow customers to move from hybrid MDM to Intune standalone in a more controlled manner without impacting end users. The new process consists of three parts: Microsoft Intune Data Importer, mixed authority, and an improved MDM authority switch.
Microsoft Intune Data Importer
One of the biggest hurdles with the process of moving from hybrid MDM to Intune standalone has been the need to recreate all the profiles, policies and apps targeted to users and devices. Microsoft Intune Data Importer is a new downloadable tool designed to automatically copy MDM data created in Configuration Manager to an Intune environment. Importable objects include configuration items, certificate profiles, email profiles, VPN profiles, Wi-Fi profiles, compliance policies, terms and conditions, and apps.
