In this post, I would decode Intune MDM and MAM features that can help enterprises to make most of it. I have seen multiple MDM setups where its utilisation becomes limited to email profile deployment and password policies. I hope this checklist will help to enhance the capabilities and make most of the Microsoft Intune.
This checklist may help to leverage all components and utilise the full capability of the suite. Please note that this checklist might not complete due to fluid nature of the cloud services, I will keep adding link of the existing resources that might help you to kick start with design, deployment and Testing. I will keep revising this list on frequent basis, please review latest Microsoft Documentation for new Intune features.
