In case you could not make it to my session on deploying and managing Configuration Manager Clients last week: the session recording was published earlier today. You can watch and/or download the session recording and slides on Technet Edge.
Below is the session abstract:
The client is a very essential part in any Configuration Manager implementation. During this session we will look into the various methods and best practices for deploying the Configuration Manager 2012 client in the enterprise. Additionally we will outline how to properly manage and maintain these clients throughout their lifecycle using the built-in client health features. If you still need to plan your client deployment, or if you are looking for information on how to improve you client coverage within your organization, this is a session you cannot afford to miss.
Until next time!
If you were unable to attend the Microsoft Management Summit (MMS2013) and will not have the opportunity to attend Teched NA in New Orleans, then your next best shot at picking up the latest and greatest information on System Center will be at Teched Europe.
The 2013 edition of TechEd Europe will take place from the 25th until the 28th of June in Madrid, Spain. For those of you not familiar with the TechEd formula: TechEd is Microsoft’s premiere conference for IT Professionals and Enterprise Developers, offering the most comprehensive technical education across Microsoft’s products, solutions, tools, and services.
The event is not only the ideal opportunity to learn about the future of Microsoft products and test drive them in one of the many labs, it is also your chance to network with international product experts and fellow IT enthusiasts.
There will be a total of nine tracks, combining both ITPro and Dev content. Keynote speakers have just now been announced as well: Brad Anderson, Corporate Vice President, Windows Server and System Center Program Management and Jon DeVaan, Corporate Vice President, Windows Development will be on stage for delivering the keynotes.
More information on the event can be found here.
A few days ago Microsoft has released Cumulative Update 1 for System Center 2012 Configuration Manager Service Pack 1. Next to fixing a series of issues this Cumulative Update also introduces some new Powershell functionality.
Full details and the download link are available here:
During the TechDays a few weeks ago I had the pleasure to present on System Center 2012 SP1. Together with other members of the System Center User Group we brought an overview of the improvements and new features Microsoft has introduced with Service Pack 1. I teamed up with System Center MVP Kenny Buntinx to talk about Configuration Manager.
If you missed the event and/or the session you now have the opportunity to have a look at the slides and listen to the session recording:
During the “What’s new in System Center SP1″ session at the Techdays we already announced that SCUGbe would release its very own app soon.
As of today the application is officially available. The app is showing the content from the SCUGbe RSS feeds and provides you with all the latest information from SCUGbe at a glance!
Thanks Dieter Wijckmans and Kenny Buntinx for bringing out the inner developer in you!

Tomorrow the 2013 edition of the Belgian Techdays is kicking off. Together with my fellow members of the System Center User group I will be presenting a session on the improvements and new features in System Center 2012 Service Pack 1. The session is scheduled on Wednesday afternoon at 17.45 so make sure not to miss it.
After this session please also join us for the “Ask The Experts” evening. This is an excellent opportunity to fire away any System Center related questions you may have. It is not very often that you have an entire team of System Center experts available to you, so have some drinks with us and take advantage of the opportunity.
See you there!
