Today, we are excited to announce co-management, a new set of capabilities in ConfigMgr and Intune that will help accelerate the move to modern management from the cloud. Co-management delivers a bridge that simplifies and reduces the risks as organizations transition the management of Windows 10 devices to cloud-based Intune.
With the Fall Creators Update, a Windows 10 device can now be joined to on-premises Active Directory (AD) and Azure AD at the same time. Co-management takes advantage of this improvement and enables the device to be managed by both ConfigMgr agent and Intune MDM. This allows organizations to move parts or workloads of their management to the cloud – thus making the move to the cloud in manageable chunks. For example, customers can transition device compliance check, resource access profile deployment, or update management from ConfigMgr to Intune while continuing to use ConfigMgr for other workloads such as software distribution and deep device security configuration.
EXTRA: IT/Dev Connections 2017 will be the first educational conference where customers can get deep-dive learning on this new feature.
