We have heard repeatedly from our customers who are using System Center Configuration Manager connected with Microsoft Intune (hybrid MDM) that they’d like to move to a cloud-only experience with Intune on Azure. This experience bringsmany new benefits, such as large scale, unified admin console, RBAC, and more. To help customers easily transition, we’re introducing a new process of moving from hybrid MDM to Intune standalone.
Previously, the move from hybrid MDM to Intune standalone required a one-time authority switch that would move an entire tenant at once and force the admin to reconfigure all settings in Intune, including re-enrolling all devices. Our new approach will allow customers to move from hybrid MDM to Intune standalone in a more controlled manner without impacting end users. The new process consists of three parts: Microsoft Intune Data Importer, mixed authority, and an improved MDM authority switch.
