Microsoft announced June 8th that the Microsoft Intune & Conditional Access portals are now Generally Available in the Azure Portal. This is great news on many levels!
First, Intune's portal has been desperately in need of an update for several years. The Intune portal was functional; however, it just hadn't kept up with all the new changes that Microsoft has been making in Office 365. The interface didn't match any of the other Office 365 portals, plus it required Internet Explorer and Silverlight!
I introduce Intune to a lot of clients, and when I would mention the Internet Explorer and Silverlight requirements I would get a lot of interesting responses (mostly not positive). Now, Intune will have a much better introduction AND it will help clients to become familiar with the Azure portal. This makes a lot of sense. Also, Intune and Azure Active Directory will share a common architecture, platform and portal.
Some thoughts on the new portal and Intune administrative experience:
I should also mention Intune for Education. If you are an Education customer of Office 365, the Intune for Education portal is definitely something you should check out. The new Intune portal is incredibly streamlined compared to the old Intune portal, but the Intune for Education portal takes it to an entirely new level. It's integrated with School Data Sync and has custom workflows built specifically with education customers in mind.
