S02E03: Intro to System Center Configuration Manager 2012
In this episode we take our first look at System Center Configuration Manager 2012. Loads of cool things we can do with this: Application/OS/Patch Deployment, Software Metering (Who’s running what, and when), Remote Control, Hardware and Software Inventory, and rich reporting of assets. Thats just some, oh, did I mention virus protection?
The main change with the 2012 version is the realisation (from MS) that users use applications not systems, so it has all gone a bit more user centric, also adds some nice touches like an application web portal allowing users to select applications to install without bothering the service desk!
