SoftwareCentral uses your security delegations from Intune, so users that already has access to the Intune- / Endpoint Manager portal will be up and running immediately.
From SoftwareCentral it is possible to see and manage Intune devices via the new interface Intune Devices. From here users can see and manage all Intune managed devices.

Example of the new interface "Intune Devices": swc

Example of device management of an Intune device: swc

From Manage Software, users can seamlessly choose between SCCM and Intune devices.
Only the software which are compatible with the selected device will be shown.
Users can easily track deployment statuses on both SCCM and Intune devices.
Behind the scenes, SoftwareCentral uses an AD-Group structure like the collection structure for SCCM applications and packages.
The main difference is that groups are created ad hoc, meaning that groups are created when needed, so you don’t need to “mend” your Intune applications.

Example of an Intune device in Manage Software on a Single Resource: swc

There is now support for Application Groups. This feature requires SCCM CB 1910 or above. In 1910 Application Groups must also be enabled in the SCCM as it is a "Pre-release" feature.

Application Groups are managed from the new Application Groups interface.
You can easily convert Software Groups to Application Groups and vice versa.
