A lot has changed from the traditional on premise managed workplace to the modern workplace managed via cloud power. You no longer have to worry about infrastructure, you can work securely from anywhere and you save money. But where do we go from here?

The cloud offers you limitless possibilities for this. In this blog we want to take a look at what Intune currently delivers out of the box and how you can build solutions on it.Read More »
It is not always easy to reach users via email or other channels. When there are projects running to exchange e.g. smartphones or migrations from files from a network drive to an SharePoint it is hard reach the users and get an answer. Intune provides with Endpoint Analytics a very good on board tool to easily reach users via a user dialog. In this blog I will show how you can use this with the example of a smartphone exchange. The dialog and the method can be adapted to many other use cases.Read More »

In this blog I will show you how to free up disk space on your clients with an high disk usage. So let’s get started.Read More »
Users always complain that the network is slow. This can also be measured centrally using various network monitoring tools. However, this monitoring can only provide complete insight if the user is actually onsite in the corporate network.

It is not always due to the network. In this block I want to show you how you can test the speed of all clients regularly with a simple remediation script and upload it to a log analytics workspace to do some analysis.Read More »
It is useful after triggering a remediation action or for simply getting feedback from the user/customer to have a kind of survey. Contacting them by mail usually results in very poor response rates.
