As you probably know already, Microsoft Intune helps you protect the devices you manage and the data stored on those devices through configuration policies. Device compliance policies let you evaluate, (and in some cases remediate), devices that aren't compliant with rules that you specify. So, this covers everything from jailbroken iOS devices; which devices are encrypted or not; and the overall health of your Windows 10 devices.
I think we’ve become a little blind-sided by terminology lately. Talk about adopting a Cloud strategy - and it conjures up a vision of a ‘Cloud platform’ somehow managing all of your data and infrastructure.
In reality, the cloud simply provides additional capacity to run workloads and give elastic-level scale to your capacity. Management is something else though, and it seems that the teams at Microsoft are starting to recognise this too, if the announcements at Ignite 19 were anything to go by.
The BIG news from Ignite '19 for System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), is that it’s still alive and kicking! Despite fears that it would be dropped, it’s been given a new lease of life, in its new home – Microsoft End Point Manager (MEM).
