Deploy or move to Microsoft Intune
A successful adoption or migration to Microsoft Intune starts with a plan. This plan depends on 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 plan.
We created some planning and deployment guides to help plan your adoption or move to Intune.
This guide is a living thing. So, be sure to add or update existing tips and guidance you've found helpful.
Before you begin
Your Intune deployment might be different from a previous MDM deployment. Intune uses identity-driven access control. It doesn't require a network proxy to access organization data from devices outside your network.
Review the common ways to use Intune.
These guides assume you've evaluated Intune in a proof of concept (PoC) environment, and decided to use it as the MDM solution in your organization. You're familiar with Intune and its features.
