I've just recently inherited a client that has extremely poor mobile device management. By extremely poor I mean an Excel spreadsheet with which laptop is assigned to which user kind of thing. There are about 30 traveling users that are, as of right now, looking for an SBS 2008 server for it's updates via local WSUS. Obviously, this doesn't work. Without getting into a solution for that, I'd like to discuss mobile management with something like Intune. Is it worth the $6/user/month to manage mobile devices like laptops and cell phones in an 2008 (soon to be 2012 R2) AD environment with hosted exchange? Are there any other comparable products? Any review I've found has been written by Microsoft.
I appreciate the assistance!
