Overall Satisfaction with Microsoft Endpoint Manager (Microsoft Intune + SCCM)

We currently utilize [Microsoft Endpoint Manager (Microsoft Intune + SCCM)] across most of our organization. We recently acquired a different business and are in the process of trying to get SCCM deployed to that side. We primarily utilize this to help ensure patching/updates are pushed out on a timely basis for our systems.
  • [Microsoft Endpoint Manager (Microsoft Intune + SCCM)] helps to speed up the deployment of patches/software throughout our environment. I can easily build a package and then deploy across all endpoints.
  • The ability to supercede software is also quite handy. This automates the removal of old versions and replacing them with newer versions.
  • The Intune Autopilot option is very useful if you want to deploy software to devices straight out of the box. You can configure them to download software when a user opens a new PC and turns it on for the first time.
  • The one major drawback to SCCM is the delays or inability to deploy software if the device doesn't stay online long enough. This is particularly an issue in our environment for those users who work remotely and don't connect to our VPN client. If you can deploy via Cloud agent, this issue should go away
  • There is a steep learning curve in getting SCCM configured and creating packages created, but it works great once configured.
  • The utilization of SCCM makes sense for our organization since we are mostly a Microsoft shop.
  • Once configured, the SCCM application really helps make it easy to deploy our security patches and Windows updates with minimal effort.
[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.
