System Center from Microsoft is a set of management platforms that provide an enterprise-class solution for managing multi-vendor networks centered around Microsoft technology. System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) is part of the System Center suite and is designed to centralize and automate critical network administration tasks like provisioning and decommissioning devices, configuring and enforcing compliance settings, inventorying network resources, and generating application usage reports.
Microsoft Intune, which is available through subscription as a standalone product or as part of Microsoft's Enterprise Mobility Suite, is a cloud-based management tool for administering Internet-facing mobile devices including iOS, Android, and Windows smartphones and tablets. Intune can be integrated with SCCM infrastructure to offer a single-console configuration management solution that spans domain-joined computers as well as cloud-connected devices.
