Intune Stand-Alone and Hybrid Comparison

Hi All, have you ever need to compare what Intune Stand-Alone and Hybrid can do for you? there are lots of information out there, but none (as far as my research goes), did a comparison between the settings. it is easy to say if you have over 50k devices, you should consider the hybrid scenario (where sccm connects to intune), but if you’re lower than that number? Should you consider Intune Stand-Alone or Hybrid? In his blog post i’ll try to provide you some of the key points and providing a winner (in my opinion). In this post i’m only looking at the MDM solution for iOS and Android Knox comparison and not every single feature that both solutions can provide. Before we start, I’ve focused on the version 1511 of the SCCM with some notes of what available on the 1602 and the latest version of intune, and I…

old 2015 and new 2016

Hi All, I would like to start this post talking about last year, 2015. 2015 started great, with renewing my MVP award. as you can imagine, this is the 1st email I look for on the 1st day of the year, being part of this community is just something that I cannot explain in works, but if I had to choose one it would be: WOW. 2015 was a crazy year for me, in both professional and personal lives. I had been working as CTO/Principal Consultant (and I also was a non-executive directory) for a company called xinfra, but unfortunately, the owner/director decided to close the company down and, so I decided to take my take the risk and take my own business (RFL Systems) to the next level, instead of working of behalf of other companies. And I hope the RFL Systems brand will only grow this year, with…

Starting discussion: Intune or SCCM

Hi All, I’d like to start this post saying that this is my only opinion and may/may not be the same opinion as Microsoft or any other person and it is based on my experience working on a series companies over the years (from many sectors of the economy and from many countries) So, let’s start. I often get this question, Should we use Microsoft Intune or SCCM? and just few times, they say, should we integrate Intune with SCCM or use it stand alone? Before answering this question, we need to know a bit of the history. And let’s start with SCCM. SCCM born in 1994 as SMS (or System Management Systems) as the same says, it was a system created to manage systems and was created in a 4-6 years update cycle, what I mean by that is that Microsoft release a new version every 4 to 6…
