inventory of -all- installed software not just the software deployed through Intune or from the Store
Today very limited reports exists for MDM, there is no report for software inventory on Mobile devices.

The Classic Silverlight portal for Intune has this feature. Microsoft is killing that portal in January, and telling us to migrate to MDM Intune, but it doesn't have the same feature set. Very disappointing.

I think this is a bad feature. Why should someone want to know this? We should not spy on our users.
Ironically, this feature works on Intune for MacOS...

Feature parity with SCCM is mandatory.
Looks like this is in development for W32 apps on Windows 10: https://osddeployment.dk/2019/02/22/win32-app-inventory-with-intune-management-extension/
"The inventory part is a feature that is released with [Intune] version 1901."
We're on this Intune version but sadly the feature isn't available. He seems to have a newer version of the sidecar engine (the registry keys "Inventories" and "InventoryTenant" are not available on our clients.
I spoke with Microsoft recently and again noticed that this is a critical feature for us.
For some reason some apps that i've installed show up now (Putty, VMware remote console etc.. so no modern apps)
The thing is that they are only shown when i open my device and go to discovered apps. When i Go to Intune > Client Apps > Discovered Apps i cannot find them.
Please MS! Why is this so hard to implement ? We can finally shutdown our SCCM environment when we have this feature.
Critical Feature! You'd think it would come included already.
Any news on this topic?

What's confusing is my classic Intune portal would report on this... but under new MDM enrollment, no dice.
How is it that a Microsoft product can provide me with a complete list of installed applications for Apple OSX and iOS devices but NOT Windows 10!!! It's extremely annoying that I can tell my Apple loving boss what applications he has installed on his MacBook but I can't tell him what's installed on my MICROSOFT Surface Pro (from intune that is). Please provide the ability to see Win32 applications!
This is a critical feature to have. Will there ever be a status update for this?
Microsoft wants to take us to an administration totally in the cloud, for that we would need the same services that we had on-premise. We need some way to have a complete inventory of our devices managed by Intune and that is like SCCM at least.

I Agree. When deploying software you need to have an idea of the state of the devices deploying to and what software is already present.
I agree. Inventory is horrible in Intune. If you don't have SCCM, the inventory is useless you need a software for this.

better inventory is important
What's the status of this capability request? Is it in progress, not being considered, or backlogged, etc.? A client has stopped it's investigation of InTune due to this gap. 280 lost EMS E3 licenses.
From a customer who went with another product: "Sadly many of the features that we needed Intune for have been removed by Microsoft. Due to these features being removed, we were forced to go with another product that had the features that we needed. One of the main features was the software inventory feature that we needed to have in place ASAP. "
There are several user voices that refer to this issue.
If company wants to move to Modern Management, definitively a full overview of the installed applications and updates is a must.
Updates are not mentioned in this post, but I think that this is definitively an information that Intune should know.
How can you otherwise know which devices are not being patched?

The Silverlight console has been almost demolished and Microsoft is pushing very hard to move us to the Intune console. But seriously, I wonder which enterprise can work with an MDM system that's not even able anymore to provide a list of Win32 applications installed on a PC??? The Silverlight console was no marvel of engineering but it somehow did it's job (albeit slowly). The Azure based console is a joke with half of it's features missing!
With regrets, we are leaving that sinking boat and going for a 3rd party solution.
We are currently migrating our Windows 10 clients from Intune PC client to Intune MDM. Unfortunately on the Azure portal there is no list of all installed software like there was in the Intune classic portal.
The only thing I can see is the installed software that was pushed/made available. But if a user installs software themselves we are unable to see that.
When is this feature coming to Intune on Azure? How is possible that this feature is available on the old portal and not on the new portal?
