From your SCCM to Intune with just a few clicks
The latest version of SoftwareCentral focuses on co-management with Microsoft Endpoint Manager and therefore new features have been added to manage Microsoft Intune in SoftwareCentral.
For many years, Microsoft Endpoint Configuration Manager has been the go-to-solution when administrators need to roll out applications to the devices in their organization. It is a proven model that most administrators are familiar with.
However, many companies see opportunities in modernizing their way of working with applications and endpoints – and one of the options is co-management, where devices can be managed both on-prem and in the cloud. Co-management allows you to simultaneously manage Windows 10 or later devices using both Configuration Manager and Microsoft Intune.
As more and more tasks move in the cloud, the question arises: What about the applications that I have already invested in configuring and setting up in Configuration Manager? Can they be exported and moved to Intune without further ado?
Unfortunately, they cannot – at least not easily. Although deploying Windows Applications in Intune is very similar to deploying in Configuration Manager, there are differences. See this blog post from MSEndpointMgr for a step-by-step guide on how to roll out Win32 applications with Intune.
Let SoftwareCentral do the work for you
In the latest version of SoftwareCentralt we have made it easy to migrate applications from Configuration Manager to Intune.
In the video below, we demonstrate how you can migrate your applications from ConfigMgr. to Intune with just a few clicks in SoftwareCentral.
You don’t need to convert the packages to the correct format. This is handled automatically by SoftwareCentral. And you don’t need to reapply custom settings such as detection methods, return codes, restart behaviors and so on. This is all copied from your applications in SCCM.
With our package subscription service, SoftwareCentral Plus, you can now import the packages directly to Intune. With our application templates you can predefine settings such as requirements, return codes, restart behaviors and so on and also define who the packages will be available to when they have been imported.
Other new Intune features that are included:
- Windows Autopilot device management. Users can import Autopilot devices and easily load data such as serial numbers and hardware hashes from ConfigMgr.
- Set Group Tags on multiple Autopilot devices in one operation to easily assign deployment profiles.
- Import packages directly to Intune from our package subscription service, SoftwareCentral Plus!
- Intune Application Templates – to easily apply settings to new Intune applications.
