SCCM or WDS for Device Deployment on InTune Endpoint

Hi There,

Wondering if any organisations you support still are using “Co-Managed” of on-prem SCCM (Endpoint Configuration Manager) & InTune.

We are thinking if we should use a basic WDS service with base Win 10 or 11 image, and then GPO enrol to InTune, and then getting all Apps and Configurations from InTune Endpoint.


Or is there any even better solution we can look into?

Thanks for tips.

It depends on your requirements. There is no one fit all solution here. Many organizations have invested in ConfigMgr and therefore prefer continuing with it. At the same time they show interests in cloud services which is where Co-managememt comes into picture. With Co-managememt you can extend your existing ConfigMgr infrastructure to cloud and future proof your setup.

Why do you want to continue using WDS as standalone? Are you planning to move away from ConfigMgr? Have you considered using Autopilot for provisioning your devices?

Hi Rahul,

Yes we are using On-Prem SCCM and thinking to move away from SCCM...We are already on Co-Managed. As we see lots things started to be brought in InTune, do not see the point to keep SCCM as it is an extra server for us to maintain since pretty much all can be managed by InTune except Imaging. That is the reason why I asked.

Would you think it might work with GPO enrolment, WDS Base Imaging and InTune Endpoint Manager?

Thanks,
ML

Hi,

Thanks for posting in Microsoft Q&A forum.

1,Wondering if any organisations you support still are using “Co-Managed” of on-prem SCCM (Endpoint Configuration Manager) & InTune.
Yes, there are many companies and organisations that are enabling Co-management by using both Configuration Manager and Microsoft Intune.

2,We are thinking if we should use a basic WDS service with base Win 10 or 11 image, and then GPO enrol to InTune, and then getting all Apps and Configurations from InTune Endpoint.
Yes, this is an easy way to achieve Co-management and to get the benefits of both services. We can refer to:
Enroll a Windows 10 device automatically using Group Policy

Best regards,
Simon

Hi Simon,

Thanks for that.

What is the point of using co-managed way of SCCM & Intune? I guess we could use WDS to install a base image of windows, and GPO to enroll the machine to INTUNE (For Configurations, Apps and Windows Update) in this way, since WDS server is much easier to maintain instead of using SCCM...

Would InTune handle App Deployment like SCCM Software centre? How can people force installation of Apps if there isn't SCCM Software centre?
