Important Pricing Changes for Citrix Customers22/03/2023
Back in October 2022, Microsoft confirmed that InTune would become a wider suite and effectively a new ‘family’ of products. This has meant the InTune license itself is being renamed to InTune Plan 1. Customers can now have the option of adding in the extra functionality that is included in InTune Plan 2. Current InTune customers will be able to add Plan 2 – or even the InTune Suite depending on the additional functionality included.

Microsoft continue to push VIVA as a key strategic product, with new apps and options being added frequently. There are now 8 different apps – some of which are included in the wider Microsoft 365 plans. There is a good comparison table, recently refreshed and available from Microsoft. Ultima can provide this – but please also contact us to learn more.
