I’m excited to share that Windows Intune was awarded “Best of TechEd 2011” and “Best of Cloud Computing” last Wednesday night at the Windows IT Pro Awards Party.

Here is what Windows IT Pro had to say about the awards:

Windows Intune makes system management easy. Companies of all sizes can begin managing their clients in hours rather than weeks or months. And this significant first step opens the door to a whole range of future management services to be released at a pace that traditional on-premise products simply can’t match. Windows Intune will change the way we manage everything.

The Windows IT Pro judging panel evaluated more than 300 individual product entries and faced the challenging task of narrowing down to 46 finalists in 16 categories. We were honored that Windows Intune was selected as a finalist.

This week at TechEd in Atlanta, the Windows Intune team spoke with the judging panel about Windows Intune and its strategic importance to the market and the value it brings to our customers and partners. I attended TechEd earlier this week and it was great to see the excitement around Windows Intune at the show.

We’re working hard to innovate and evolve Windows Intune to address the management needs of customers of all sizes —in new ways, with less costs and higher productivity. If you haven’t tried it yet, you can still evaluate Windows Intune by checking out the free 30-day trial. More information about Windows Intune can be found at www.windowsintune.com.

Congratulations to the Windows Intune team and thank you to Windows IT Pro for this recognition!
