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.

Companies can't remove reviews or game the system. Here's why

Windows Autopilot makes provisioning user Windows PC laptops a breeze. A user only needs to turn on the laptop, join it to their local WiFi, login with their O365 account then sit back and let Windows Autopilot handle the app installations required for work, configure the laptop settings to meet my organization requirements. I have seen this all completed in less than 30 minutes depending on how fast the internet connection is.

Where Microsoft Intune needs to improve I think is the part where it can push out software updates to 3rd party apps. Right now I have to use Automox to fill in this gap.

Microsoft Endpoint Manager is a very power application for managing remote users and mobile devices at scale. I don't think it would make much sense for a smaller company that doesn't have that many mobile assets to use, but for mid to enterprise size companies Microsoft Intune is definitely a life saver to cut down on the TCO of mobile device management.

When dealing with a large number of users and devices SCCM has become the right hand of the department in regards to deploying, monitoring and rolling out devices. Making sure all devices are patched and have the latest malware revisions updated and applied has become much easier than before where each individual user was responsible.

Due to the time it takes to apply updates and changes, SCCM would be less appropriate when dealing with a smaller size of users

Microsoft Endpoint Manager (Microsoft Intune + SCCM) is well suited for any organization or company size. Probably is used more in depth in organizations or companies that have 20 or more PCs. Being that Microsoft Endpoint Manager (Microsoft Intune + SCCM) comes with Microsoft 365 Business Premium is a huge plus which makes it very well suited for any size business, especially small businesses.

For any enterprise environment, it will be hard to go wrong with [Microsoft Endpoint Manager (Microsoft Intune + SCCM)]. Is it the perfect solution? No...but when considering integration across the M365/Azure front, it has significant advantage. It is probably overkill for smaller organizations, or for small businesses with limited technology staff. That said, it is not the most complicated product offered by Microsoft :)

Large, centralized IT department with responsibility for, and control over large portions of an organization's IT assets, policies, and security work well with SCCM. The addition of Intune allows for a distributed workforce to receive updates, policies, and security over the internet. Smaller organizations, or groups of smaller departments in a large organization that manage their own IT assets would not be a good fit for the investment in MEM.

If you have a knowledgeable and decent sized server team, this is a fantastic product. However, trying to configure and maintain [Microsoft Endpoint Manager (Microsoft Intune + SCCM)] with only 1 or 2 server engineers, it is quite a handful. Since it is a Microsoft product, you can rely on the stability as well as the security of the application.

It is well suited to organizations that have numerous deployments or yearly refreshes of systems. Especially now that we do work from home (mostly), it's easier for IT administrators and end-users to actually rely on this software to provide the specific application that they do require. From an admin point of view, it's as simple as adding the new or updated application to the available apps for users to install. From an end-user perspective, it's as simple as checking the SCCM client for the available app and installing it.

I would implement Microsoft Endpoint Manager without a doubt in a new startup. Between this and Azure Active Directory, there is limited need for on-prem Group Policy & Active Directory. This would allow full cloud management of the enterprise and less need for on-prem services.

It can be tricky to migrate from on-prem to Microsoft Endpoint Manager within a larger organisation as each individual policy item would need to be implemented one by one and tested thoroughly - but well worth the effort to do this.

It is good for mid or ent business. Good interfaces and integration with other MS applications and services.
Nowadays lots of companies use BYOD devices and try to manage them with Systems Center Configuration Manager, which bring some security issues and unconvinced. MS Intune may improve this situation and bring lots of benefits.
For small business it is less appropriate because require licenses and IT professionals to manage.

Intune is suitable for scenarios to manage endpoints such as laptop, desktop, and mobile devices. It allows administrators to set up office email and other apps on the personal mobile device of the employees so that they access corporate data all the time. Administrators have full control of the information flow and they have the option to remotely wipe all the data in case of any compromise. Suitable for providing enterprise mobility and secure access to corporate resources. Not sure about less appropriate scenarios.

Big companies. Companies over different locations. For less, I would say for small companies it's overkill. A lot of initial setup, expense — Windows Server license, DB server license, Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) license.

SCCM is awesome for patching and great for application deployment as well. If you use powerful add-ons like PatchMyPC and use Microsoft Azure integration to extend its reach to remote machines, it is truly indispensable. It may be less so if you don't have the money for those additions. If you already have an effective patching solution that also handles third-party and remote patching, SCCM may not be worth the effort.

It is well suited if you are an Office 365 shop. The ecosystem and security cannot be matched. Securing data and DLP is built-in or works together. It is a really cost-effective solution for MDM, MAM, and endpoint management.

It is well suited in organizations that are looking for an all-in-one Systems Management solution, that is well-known in the industry, and comes from a vendor that is also well-known, and that offers good support for this kind of product. It is less suited for organizations that want to use something right away, without a whole lot of setup/management on the back-end. This also wouldn't be suited for organizations that don't have funding for their IT folks to get formal training in the use of the product or have the time to read through the documentation, etc.

Well suited where you have a vulnerability and just push the needed patch without going around each and every computer and addresses issues where the patch was released out of band. This saves valuable time and definitely frees administrators to do other tasks. You can push applications to users without them requiring administrators privileges and therefore still not having to be present!

It's less appropriate when it comes to third-party software patching e.g Winrar, 7Zip, Google Chrome, Firefox and these are not covered by SCCM. I would love for them to be able to extend their patch management to other vendors.

Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager is needed for any business with 300 or more PCs. It helps maintain application and security patch compliance. I use it for app deployments mostly, but it is also used for monthly security patch deployments by others on my team. The Software Center app is a nice bonus for end-users.

I know many people have a great experience with System Center Configuration Manager, but it is not suitable for organizations that cannot commit a significant amount of time to configuration and deployment. For example, my organization uses Jamf Pro for Mac management. It took me a couple of days to configure every setting needed for an adequate Mac deployment. System Center Configuration Manager took way longer. Most MSPs in our area do not want to deal with it due to its complexity either. A big organization will find the product more suitable, as configuration tasks are the same whether an organization has 1000 or 10,000 computers, the installation will be more useful with scale. In my case, trying to deploy System Center Configuration Manager as a personal project while doing other tasks was not a success.

It is an enterprise. You have to have some level of scale to make this product feasible. It isn't just something you throw into the environment to make your life easier. When you are managing thousands of computers, the equation changes and it is incredibly valuable. It is complex and if not done correctly, it potentially can cause a lot of damage, so make sure you fully understand what you are doing before you press the button.

Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager is great for companies of all sizes, national or international. Its scalability and pinpoint accuracy can be used in all scenarios. However, use downstream servers as distribution points to save on bandwidth and ensure timely updates and easier deployment of individual software packages.

Seems obvious, but if your organization's assets are all based on Microsoft Windows, this is the right product for you. If you have mixed environments, with most of the computers running Linux or Mac, I don't think you'll have the same results. Unfortunately, I can't say much about that, because my experience is only based on a full Windows environment, and honestly, I didn't waste to much time paying attention to other operating systems.

I think it works well enough and helps a lot for a number of scenarios in IT. However, make sure you understand the task ahead and how many hours it will take to maintain. The trade off might not be as good as you think.

Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager isn't too useful for smaller companies. But with businesses of 100+ users and PCs, it is very handy. It allows you to report on and manage all of those PCs. I can easily push out new software to certain PCs. and ensure they are always fresh with either the latest updates or latest builds of Windows.
