inTune provides your organization with MDM(mobile device management) services and is now powered by the Azure platform and managed within. While this feature has been in preview for a few months, now you can directly manage all inTune functions within Azure without the split between the two.
inTune Management now in Azure.
This is a significant rebuild and re-architecture of inTune to become a cloud powered service which is highly scalable and flexible for your environment. Previously inTune was running with a Silverlight management portal which had become dated, Azures latest portal is a much more modern experience and continually advancing to allow for increased functionality, automation and integration across services for that ‘baked-in’ feeling. Active Directory is also available within Azure and fundamental for device and user management, managing both side-by-side allows for a much more tailored administration experience.
