Product Details

What is Microsoft Endpoint Manager (Microsoft Intune + SCCM)?

Microsoft Endpoint Manager, combining the capabilities of the former Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager, SCCM or ConfigMgr with the mobile device management application Microsoft Intune, is presented as a unified endpoint management option.

The former Microsoft Intune is an endpoint management solution for mobile devices, an MDM solution that allows the user to securely manage iOS, Android, Windows, and macOS devices with a single endpoint management solution.

The component Endpoint Configuration Manager (the former SCCM) is a system monitoring and management platform that can be deployed as an agent, via the cloud, or on-premises. It can manage systems across OS types (Windows, Mac, Linux), as well as multiple environments, including servers, virtual environments, and mobile devices from a single management console, and supports scaling capabilities, such as future application delivery.

The platform includes a customizable reporting tool to inform future business software decisions. It also enables endpoint protection from malware and vulnerability identification within the monitored systems and infrastructure.

We have also looked at using VMware WorkSpace ONE \ AirWatch for mobile device management, but our mobile device administrators preferred Microsoft EndPoint Manager because of its integration with Microsoft SCCM and the integration with 0365. Both products are fairly expensive as well. AirWatch does have some nice integration with VMware vSphere, but is more cumbersome to setup and administer day-to-day.

Symantec Ghost Solutions only covered only 2 parts, creating and imaging, of what Microsoft Endpoint Protection provided us. Price point wise it was a no brainer for us to switch to it as it covered many other things we were looking for and become an almost all in one solution

We did not evaluate or use other products like Microsoft Endpoint Manager (Microsoft Intune + SCCM). The main reason we did not evaluate or use other products is because Microsoft Endpoint Manager (Microsoft Intune + SCCM) integrates seamlessly with Microsoft 365 and Windows PCs. Expenses would have increased as well if we had purchased another similar product.

SCCM's bread and butter has been imaging, and that still can't be beat. With cloud computing becoming more normal, however, we are seeing fewer instances where we are flat out imaging devices as they come in. However, [Microsoft] Endpoint Manager still [excels] in this area. Application deployment is reliable but requires patience. Other products such as PDQ or Goverlan will provide more immediate satisfaction for net admins looking to deploy an application right then and there.

Due to work put into getting SCCM up and running, moving to Endpoint Manager was the logical step, without needing to compare to other products and start that development cycle over again. Staying within the Microsoft ecosystem allows our organization to have better-defined interconnections and have less potential problem points.

[Microsoft Endpoint Manager (Microsoft Intune + SCCM)] was already in our environment when I was hired. We haven't really evaluated the need to use another application because SCCM has been working well for us. Additionally, Microsoft SCCM is the industry-standard when it comes to endpoint management, so it works well for our needs.

Group policy, the predecessor of Microsoft Endpoint Manager was a great, easy to use tool. It is dated and stuck as an on-prem solution but still very good and served a purpose. We are still using this in conjunction with Microsoft Endpoint Manager whilst we complete our migration. The logic is quite different between the 2 systems but they both serve a similar purpose.

We tired other solution which less suite for our needs.
Currently we mostly use MS applications and services so, MS Intune ans SCCM close match our expectation and needs.
We require easy access and top reliability with support for all of our IT platforms.
Also our CIO keen of MS products and trying to remove all 3d party products.

I haven't used any of the above-mentioned endpoint management solutions but heard about them. I hope they also provide similar functionalities as provided by Intune.

I have also used Avanti on our SCADA network for patching only. We don't update the applications or require imaging as hardware is slow to change. Avanti is faster for patching, and the initial setup is quick. Training isn't required.

Dell Kace K1000 does a great job of system patching of Applications, Office, and Windows. It does a great job of software deployment. It even has great software for asset and inventory management. It is also a ServiceDesk platform, and if you're not using that function, it can be hard to justify financially. SCCM costs a lot less to implement and maintain.

Most companies with Office 365 already own Intune. It also heavily integrated with Office 365. Other product users had more issues and limitations. Security features did not work with other vendors, and we spent more time dealing with issues.

SCCM is probably used across the industry more so than most other Systems Management solutions, and the reasoning behind this is most likely because it is a Microsoft product, which integrates well with the Windows Server platform, and also with clients/endpoints that are on the Windows OS. The reason why we've moved to this over other Systems Management solutions is that this was already being utilized across the whole organization, and not just at the department level. This helps to make things more manageable from a setup/support standpoint since we don't need to really get involved with the complexity of customizing the program from the beginning. This is also a benefit cost-wise since management of licensing is done at the top level of the organization

GFI Lan Guard system is not user-friendly. GFI Lan Guard does not produce laptop/computer images in one place and its asset management is not very good. System Center Configuration Manager was built for asset management and therefore able to provide robust inventory management.
System Center Configuration Manager fitted into our Microsoft products we already have and the Microsoft Operating Systems (e.g Exchange Server, SQL Server, Server 2012R2 and Server 2016.

Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager is kind of the only option for PC management on a large scale. There are open-source alternatives like Chocolatey, but that only works for very small scale shops. Microsoft kind of monopolizes on this front for enterprise environments. I wish there were more options out there for engineers to use for PC management.

We use AD GPO to deploy software, WDS for OS deployment, and Spiceworks for inventory. This solution has significantly reduced feature set compared to SCCM but much easier to troubleshoot and configure. Currently, we are looking into ManageEngine Desktop Central and SmartDeploy for OS and software deployment.

We were a ZENworks shop previously. With our strong tie to Novell that made sense, but as we left Netware and its enterprise directory it made sense to leave Zenworks. At the time, I would have said that ZENworks was a more mature tool and I haven't kept up with their feature offering. But in the 8 years SCCM has really matured and become an incredible offering. There is a reason they are the market leader.

I inherited an already existing environment system center. My previous experience was using WSUS. Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager does still use WSUS but it is a far more robust and complete solution for managing and reporting on all your PCs. Our Microsoft Licensing includes rights to use SCCM, so it makes it the smarter choice for us.

We selected SCCM over the others because the customer support we receive from Microsoft is always above expectations. We evaluated some third-party vendors, and they were not able to support our large enterprise. The single solution that SCCM provides allowed us to keep our Microsoft products stacked together. The flexibility of the program and the reliability is why we choose SCCM over the other comparable software solutions.

For a Microsoft-centric organization like ours, it was a no-brainer to switch to SCCM over WSUS. I have also managed an environment with Altiris and while those other two tools are also great, SCCM integrates with Microsoft Operating Systems much better and gives more insight when using reporting function in SCCM over competitors. SCCM was also easily scalable when we had a merger and added additional 5000 devices which grew our environment by 50% and because we already had SCCM it made incorporating the added devices easy.
