BY IT GLUE | March 18, 2024

Managing the vast amounts of data within Microsoft ecosystems is becoming increasingly complex for IT professionals, who must grapple with the challenge of maintaining accurate and up-to-date documentation amidst overwhelming amounts of data. Recognizing this pain point, IT Glue is set to revolutionize the way IT documentation is managed with the launch of a groundbreaking feature: Smart Relate: Microsoft Users to Devices. This feature is designed to make IT Glue, and consequently your documentation, more intelligent than ever before.

Microsoft environment in IT Glue: A hub for Microsoft data consolidation

The seamless integration of Microsoft services with IT Glue has been a game changer for IT documentation, simplifying the consolidation of Microsoft 365, Intune, Active Directory and Azure AD data into a singular, structured and secure platform. This centralization empowers IT teams with a comprehensive view of their Microsoft ecosystem, enhancing both data accessibility and the overall management process. Through IT Glue, information flows effortlessly, enabling a real-time, accurate overview of assets, licenses and users, which is pivotal for operational efficiency and decision-making.

By automatically centralizing your Microsoft data, IT Glue alleviates the manual labor previously required to maintain up-to-date documentation. Custom templates and relationship mapping further streamline this process, ensuring that all Microsoft-related information is not only consolidated but also easy to understand and consume. This structured approach to documentation, combined with IT Glue’s capability to integrate multiple Microsoft solutions, transforms cluttered data into an organized, actionable asset. The result is a more intelligent IT documentation environment where critical decisions are informed by a complete and current understanding of the IT landscape.

Smart Relate: Microsoft Users to Devices – A leap towards intelligent documentation

Building on the foundation of relationship mapping, the new feature is set to transform how Microsoft data is correlated within IT Glue. Before, setting up connections for complex organizations with constantly changing IT infrastructure was a manual process that involved hundreds of clicks to establish all the different relationships. Smart Relate: Microsoft Users to Devices eradicates this inefficiency by automating the process, making your documentation work smarter.

The powerful feature enhances IT Glue’s documentation efficiency by automating the creation of relationships. Specifically, through the Microsoft 365 integration, Smart Relate: Microsoft Users to Devices automatically links Intune devices (stored as IT Glue Configurations) with the assigned Microsoft 365 Users (IT Glue Users). This means that when viewing either the User or the Device in the Related Items section, the other will be readily visible, eliminating the time-consuming hunt for device-user relationships.
