MMS 2014 Debrief

2014-11-09 18.15.06-1Last week I was at the Midwest Management Summit (MMS) in Minneapolis, a three day conference organized by the Minnesota System Center User Group.

At this event I had the pleasure to deliver two sessions for which I again teamed up with my friend and ECM MVP Kenny Buntinx. Based on the feedback received on our sessions so far, we did well again at evangelizing Unified Device Management (UDM) with Configuration Manager and Intune.

Having a lot of time for Q&A made these sessions very interactive and allowed attendees to (hopefully) ask all their questions. If you did attend and have further feedback, questions, or comments please make sure to send them to Kenny and/or myself.

Next to speaking I also had the opportunity to attend some really nice sessions. As my focus is on Enterprise Client Management I was really pleased to see so many sessions on ECM topics on the schedule. Building a schedule for the conference was quite challenging.

Having these sessions delivered by community experts is a big plus as you have the chance pick up a lot of experience (and potential pitfalls) from the field. One really nice example of this would be the session on Pull DP’s with Todd Hemsell. Also the sponsor sessions were a great fit: I attended those from 1E and Secunia and really enjoyed the technical level of these sessions. No marketing fluff.

2014-11-10 18.06.17-1Another highlight for me was the talk on getting MMS right at home where the user group leads could share experiences. Next to that the event also brought back some of the best ingredients from the ‘old MMS’, for example the Configmgr State of the Union and the Jeopardy Quiz.

Overall this has been a really great event – except for the outside temperatures there are really no negatives I could think of. Winking smile

Although still to be confirmed I sincerely hope there will be a 2015 edition of this event! I for sure would love to attend!

Until next time!
