Microsoft modernise their device management offering with Endpoint Manager

Microsoft has just announced at Ignite that they are bringing together System Center Configuration Manager (ConfigMgr) and Intune into one product called Microsoft EndPoint Manager.

Previously there has been confusion around the different names, brands and consoles that Microsoft had in market, now Microsoft Endpoint Manager will simplify Microsoft’s offering. ConfigMgr, Intune, Co-Management, Desktop Analytics and the Device Management admin console, will all be part of Microsoft Endpoint Manager.

One benefit of Microsoft bringing these solutions together is that any ConfigMgr customer can now automatically use Intune and co-manage Windows devices with no new license or licensing costs.

Changes will commence this month starting with the name of the admin experience inside the Microsoft 365 console being updated. ConfigMgr tasks and data will also now appear in this unified console experience.

So should you be changing the way you think about Co-Management? Co-Management is not a bridge it’s the destination, and you can stay there.

Olikka’s recommendation is to start using Microsoft Endpoint Manager right away. Begin your journey of modern device co-management and reap the rewards of both Intune and ConfigMgr together. By doing so, you can leverage the latest intelligence from the Microsoft 365 cloud to augment endpoint management across your fleet, at anytime, anywhere.
