A successful migration to Microsoft Intune starts with a solid plan that factors in your current mobile device management (MDM) environment, business goals, and technical requirements. Additionally, you need to include the key stakeholders who will support and collaborate with your migration plan.

This guide walks you through the various details involved in migrating from a third-party MDM provider to Intune.

What's included in this guide?

This guide breaks down the migration into two phases, both of which include tasks, strategies, and tactical guidance that will help you step through the end-to-end process of migrating to Intune MDM.


  • You've already evaluated Intune in a proof of concept (PoC) environment, and have decided to use it as the MDM solution in your organization.

  • You are already familiar with Intune and its features.

Before you begin

It's important to recognize that your new Intune deployment might be different from your old MDM deployment. Unlike traditional MDM services, Intune centers on identity-driven access control, and so does not require a network proxy appliance to control access to corporate data from mobile devices outside the organization's network perimeter. Microsoft offers solutions to secure data services within the cloud itself through a suite of tightly integrated cloud services, collectively referred to as the Enterprise Client + Security offering.
