Windows Intune and Beyond

The Windows Intune team is always looking forward. It is important to have a well-defined roadmap in order for a new product or service to be successful.

Those of you who have had an opportunity to try Windows Intune have seen the major features it offers:

  • Endpoint protection from malware, viruses, and other threats
  • Software and hardware inventory, along with Microsoft Volume License management
  • Monitoring and Alerts
  • Microsoft update management à la WSUS
  • Policy for configuring deployed Windows Intune clients
  • Remote Assistance capabilities to help admins support their end-users

We are thinking longer term now, and we wanted to ask you all what you would like to see in future versions of Windows Intune. What are the top things on your Windows Intune wish list? Do you want to be able to manage devices other than Windows PCs? Are there changes in the way you work in the Administrator Console that would make your life easier? Would you like to see Windows Intune add other features beyond desktop management? What new features and capabilities would make Windows Intune a winning solution for you?  This is your opportunity to influence the direction we take with Windows Intune. As always, your feedback is welcome…you can submit it here.  If you’d like to have a deeper, longer term engagement with the Windows Intune team, we offer the following opportunity.

    Can I go from W7 HP to W7 Pro with my Intune upgrade rights via Anytime Upgrade?

  2. As Windows Home Premium is not a qualifying OS for Windows Intune (exception in Academic CASA / EES, where Home Premium is a qualifying OS), you would have to upgrade (could be with Windows Anytime Upgrade) from Home Premium to a Pro sku first, then you would qualify for Windows Intune.

    I'm curious… Why can't the upgrade be through AnyTime Upgrade, so that if I have a bought a computer with W7 Home Premium, I won't have to sit for hours and reinstall with W7 Pro or Enterprise.

    And since all Drivers etc. aren't on the homepages from the vendor…. this is a big dissapointment…
