Support for OSX
It would be great if Intune could manage Mac OSX computers directly via an agent. This is already possible for PCs.
Many of my clients are small companies who run a mix of Mac OSX and Windows PCs. They are too small to run System Center Configuration Manager. It would be great if Intune could manage OSX without relying on System Center.
We have announced that we are planning to manage Macs as mobile devices – https://microsoftintune.uservoice.com/forums/291681-ideas/suggestions/8341929-mac-os-management-without-the-need-to-leverage-int
Is that sufficient, or are you saying you’d need a full Mac client, equivalent to the PC client? If Mac MDM is good enough, I can merge this into that one.

I need full software inventory of Mac OS devices. According to your blog it is possible. However I cannot obtain the same result that you published on your blog - my software inventory list is blank. My Mac OS operating system vendor and version isn't detected, and the device is listed as "Mobile Device" as opposed to "Computer".
I followed you blog to the letter.
How do I get a full inventory of what software is installed on Macs?

Please see this blog post for details on our new Mac OS X management Intune features:
Can you please explain what add'l mgmt capabilities you would like to see? The MDM framework may be able to provide some of the capabilities you're looking for.
Hello Cathy, Mac MDM is not good enough. I need a full Mac client equivalent to a PC client.
