What changes are you looking forward to in Windows Intune 3.0?

ncharles

Intune 2.0 was just released in October, and had some nice improvements over the original. The ability to deploy software through Intune after uploading software packages to cloud storage and management of software licenses through Intune were both good additions. What is on the horizon with Intune 3.0 that will move the service forward from 2.0?

"In version 3.0, Microsoft has already said it will help Intune connect with other servers and manage additional systems. For example, Microsoft plans to let Intune connect with an on-premises System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) deployment, as well as with Forefront Endpoint Protection and the Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP). Already, for $1 more per user per month, Intune 2.0 lets administrators use the tools in MDOP, including virtualization capabilities like MED-V and APP-V. Microsoft also plans to integrate Intune with Office 365 and some mobile devices."
