Session 2: Monitor Intune with API from different perspectives
In this session, Peter and Sander bundle their expertise and show how we can monitor our Microsoft Intune environment in different ways.

As an example, we show you how to monitor security baselines.
Peter uses Azure Logic App to get the job done. Sander shows how to monitor the security baselines with Azure Functions.
Both approaches rely on making use of the Graph API.
The following topics are covered:
• Authentication
• Get the correct information
• Loops
• Send alerts
Besides monitoring the security baselines, we discuss other parts of Intune, which we should keep an eye on and can be monitored by using graph API.

Session 3: Windows Hello for Business in hybride omgevingen
“Every time you choose Hybrid Azure AD Join over Azure AD Join an angel loses its wings.” Het Microsoft-productteam maakt met deze uitspraak duidelijk dat er veel meer waarde zit in het omarmen van cloudwerkplekken dan het uitbreiden van domain-joined werkplekken met cloudfunctionaliteit.

In deze sessie leggen Sander Berkouwer en Raymond Comvalius uit dat je met cloudwerkplekken gewoon toegang kunt behouden tot on-premises applicaties, diensten en systemen, welke mogelijkheden je hebt, hoe je dit met Windows Hello for Business en de Azure AD passwordless-mogelijkheden bereikt en wat je hiervoor dient te configureren.

Na deze sessie kun je met vol vertrouwen de omzetting van de werkplekken in jouw organisatie aanvangen.
