Last year I did a little research project about Microsoft’s public cloud and how it cloud affect Small and Medium sized businesses. So I created a paper which should help Microsoft partners to decide how they can improve their services and solutions by using the Microsoft public cloud. I the paper I focused on Microsoft Office 365 and Windows Intune. This should be for the partner which do infrastructure solutions like Active Directory, Exchange and PC Management.

You can download this paper from my Windows Live SkyDrive.
The paper includes a lot of text copied from Microsoft documents and websites, and research I did by myself. All the sources should be marked, but if you find anything which is not marked please feel free to contact me.

Now after the something over three months I finished my first project for the 5th KTSI semester. As a project I created a overview of the Microsoft Cloud for Small and Medium sized businesses. I wrote about the big partner and customer opportunity with Windows Intune and Office 365.

Microsoft released the July 2011 Beta of Windows Intune yesterday. The new beta brings a lot of new cool features which were missing in the first version of Windows Intune.

  • Software Distribution
  • License Management for third-party software
  • Enhanced Reporting
  • Read-only Access Administrators
  • Offline Client Installation
  • Remote Tasks (Malware scan etc)
  • and more…

If you need more information on the July beta of Windows Intune you can download the Factsheet or get more information on technet.

I think through this update Windows Intune gets the features it needs to be successful. This is a great opportunity for small and mid-sized which not had a Software Distribution in place, to get an easy solution.
