User Management, Compliance-Management, -Reporting und -Monitoring, Application Management, Service Administration, Application Protection, Device und Profile Management, Conditional Access, Azure Information Protection, Company Resource Access, Device Support, Software Update Management, Reporting, Training, etc.
2. Implementation Services: Microsoft EM+S / Intune
When switching from domain management to modern mobile device and application management, the complexity of a modern cloud infrastructure becomes apparent. The market is segmented and confusing. To structure this, Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security with Intune can be used, for example.
A complete solution requires Azure Active Directory for identity and access management, Intune for device and application management, and Azure Information Protection to secure data inside and outside the enterprise.
We can support you in an appropriate Proof of Concept (POC) and offer the possibility to use it productively after acceptance.
For a POC for EM+S with Intune we have 3 standardized packages. The Basic package includes 5 days, the Advanced package 8 days and the Expert package 15 days. If the packages we have predefined are not sufficient for you, we offer you the opportunity to support you with a POC tailored to your needs.
Depending on the standardized package, the following points are implemented in part or in their entirety:
Preparation, Azure Active Directory (AD), Device Enrolment, Device Compliance, Device Configuration, Mobile Applications, Conditional Access, Azure Information Protection (AIP), Integration, Testing, Training
Migrations Services: From any UEM/EMM/MDM to Microsoft EM+S with Intune
Our experience shows that especially in the mobile sector the requirements for usability, availability and security are very high. In addition, Mobile is linked to all topics in the Microsoft stack and is often only considered at a late stage.
Planning a cloud migration is easier if the strategic view already exists and requirements for managing the device lifecycle are clearly defined. The high complexity and subsequent adjustments in the cloud strategy have an impact on the entire mobile strategy. K.O. criteria, deal breakers and restrictions in the mobile sector should therefore be identified at an early stage in order to minimise subsequent adjustments.
Influence a mobile migration:
- Adjustments to the Cloud Strategy
- Limitations, Restrictions, Problems and Delays in Cloud Migration
- Changing the authentication method
- Missing licenses (e.g. AAD Premium P1 for Conditional Access)
EM+S with Intune integrates itself into existing services and products that already exist in the company. This means that there are many overlaps with other teams, products and services within the IT landscape. Internal and external teams need to be much more coordinated as they all work together in the same system and changes in the Microsoft stack can impact all cloud services. This can complicate implementation, migration and smooth productive operation.
We can migrate from any Unified Endpoint Management (UEM), Enterprise Mobility Management (EMM) and/or Mobile Device Management (MDM) to Microsoft EM+S. We offer support for the following topics: Devices, Management Modes such as Mobile Applications Management (MAM), Android for Enterprise (AE), Line-of-Business Apps (LOB) and Services, Network Topics, Data Loss Prevention (DLP) and Security Settings, Authentication by Multifactor Authentication (MFA), Single-Sign-On, Support, Maintenance, Engineering, Service Management, Reporting and Monitoring etc. through to Business Requirements and Service Development.
User-controlled migration from any UEM/EMM/MDM to Microsoft EM+S with Intune
With our user-controlled migration, the transfer to EM+S is automated and standardized with Intune. User profiles of the source system are read, analyzed, and transferred to equivalent or comparable profiles of the target system automatically.
Automating the migration process saves time, avoids errors and requires minimal support. The advantages over manual migration are:
- Up to 90% time savings through automated processes compared to manual migration
- Amortization from as little as 100 Devices
- Free choice of migration date and time for end users instead of fixed migration plans
- Software as a Service (SaaS): No installation or backend customization required
- Cost savings due to reduced personnel deployment and minimal downtimes
- Automated processes relieve the IT department (e.g. helpdesk and IT staff), tie up fewer resources and reduce the need for support
- Minimized downtime, as the migration process only takes a few minutes
- Your users are productive again faster
3. Preparation Services: Microsoft EM+S with Intune
Why should companies consider Microsoft Enterprise Mobility + Security (EM+S) with Intune?
Almost every business uses Microsoft products and services somewhere within the IT stack. It is therefore not surprising that more and more companies are considering the EM+S Suite with Intune from Microsoft as a tool for managing both mobile and conventional end devices. There are many reasons why you should take a closer look at EM+S with Intune:
Financially. You may already have access to some or all of the required licensing through an existing Enterprise License Agreement. The solution Microsoft EM+S with Intune can mean less financial expenditure for you, than the combination of single products of other suppliers.
Simplified configuration. To make the implementation of EM+S with Intune as easy as possible, we offer services that combine best practices, tools, resources and experts.
All devices on a single platform. If you use Windows 10, EM+S offers Intune, a modern alternative to the traditional endpoint management approach for iOS, Android, MacOS and Windows 10 devices over a single platform.
Technical features. Certain features such as Azure Information Protection and Microsoft Intune Application Management are unique to EM+S with Intune. Through integration with Azure AD Premium, additional security options such as conditional access can be enabled.
Challenges with the introduction of Microsoft EM+S / Intune
In contrast to conventional unified endpoint management platforms (UEM, EMM, MDM), EM+S with Intune relies heavily on integration with existing Microsoft cloud and on-premise components of your company. This can lead to questions within your organization, such as
- Can EM+S do with Intune what the current EMM platform does?
- How will EM+S integrate with Intune into existing Microsoft On-Premise services?
- How will EM+S integrate with Intune into existing Microsoft Cloud Services?
- Are there major risks that should be considered?
For these and other questions, we have developed two assessments that provide you with answers.
Assessments: Microsoft EM+S / Intune
The two assessments were developed by us in order to reduce complexities and uncertainties on the one hand and to save time and money in a planned EM+S deployment with Intune.
Which assessment is the right one depends on your current acceptance and integration of the Microsoft Cloud.
Review: Microsoft EM+S / Intune
Are you already using EM+S / Intune? If you attach importance to a second opinion, we offer you an additional review with which the setup is controlled/optimized and we make recommendations.
