Windows Intune gets a makeover

Since my first review (download whitepaper) of Windows Intune, Microsoft has released a new beta version with the following features / capabilities:

  • Software Distribution
  • Group Policy Conflict notification
  • Remote Actions

The other minor improvements are: support for images, enhancements to the user interface, third party license management and hardware dashboard.

Windows Intune is now looking like the real deal but there are still some enhancements which can give the product a real competitive edge in the enterprise as opposed to the SME target, as discussed in my first review.  Some of the missing capabilities are: Mobile Device Management, Support for non-Windows devices, and Global Availability of the Service.
