Hey guys and girls, sorry about not updating my blog because I have been occupied with work. I feel so bad to break this goal, which is to write every once a week.
So I think my title caught your attention right? You thought that this post is going to be talking nonsense? Hahaha…No! I do still receiving people having misunderstanding what is Intune, its capability and its limitations. I do see quite a lot of blogs are only talking about the wins and lose of Intune and Group Policy Management, not many in explaining.
Familiar questions that I usually get;
“I thought Intune is a replacement of GPO?”
“Why do we still need to rely on GPO?”
“No, you are wrong, I saw there is administrative templates in Intune”
I am here to explain it to you properly.
If you took your time to look closely on Intune’s Device configuration categories, you will notice their settings are actually not as complete as GPO for Windows. So seeing something half does not mean it gives you full understanding of Intune capability and limitations until you put yourself and it into experiment or lab testing.
The journey I had with Intune, I would say it was a roller-coaster, I experience its limitations, behavior and good part. Yes, technology keeps changing to ease our daily challenges.
Throughout my experience, I would say that Intune does their job but still not stable enough. I usually have to combine other technology to achieve the work. You might thought of this “Urgh…is lots of work and to keep track on.”, well, if you are creative person, these are your possibilities to your resolutions from stopping you to get that work done.
In conclusion, Intune is not Group Policy Management, but Intune and Group Policy Management can be one (combine) to get your work done.
