After a successful first edition in 2014 the next edition of ITPROCeed is only a few weeks away. The concept remains the same: a unique event organized and driven by the top Belgian ITPro user groups and strong support from Microsoft.
I’m happy and honored to be part again of this event and will be delivering two sessions:
- In the first session I am teaming up with the three other Belgian ECM MVP’s: Nico Sienaert, Kim Oppalfens and Kenny Buntinx. In this session we will discuss the changes and new features available in the next Service Pack for System Center Configuration Manager 2012.
- The second session will be with my regular partner in crime Kenny Buntinx and is entitled: delivering traditional file server workloads in a secure manner to modern devices.
And there is a lot more: have a look at the full agenda which spans no less than 5 tracks here.
- Also this year this will be a free event!
- So mark your calendars for June 11th. Place to be is Utopolis in Mechelen.

See you there!
Last week Thursday the first edition of ITPROCeed took place at ALM in Antwerp. This event was an initiative that rose out of the ashes of the Belgian TechDays, which Microsoft decided to discontinue after a successful last edition in 2013.
The organization and setup of this event was powered by the Belgian IT Pro community and it is the effort of the user groups in close cooperation –and with great support from– with Microsoft that has made this first edition of the event a great success.
From an attendee perspective there were 500+ registrations spread over the 4 tracks. The System Center track had the largest number of registrations – which proves System Center is still a very hot topic!
I had the pleasure to be a speaker at this edition and would like to take the opportunity to thank those attendees who attended the session on Unified Device Management I delivered together with Kenny Buntinx. Based on the photos on social media and the reactions on twitter it is always nice to see that people are enjoying our sessions. Furthermore I hope the winners of the Enterprise Mobility Management books by Jack Madden are having a good read as we speak.
For those who attended make sure to check out the ITPROCeed page on Facebook to see whether or not you made it to the photo albums. For those who did not attend make sure to check out what you have missed. For the social media addicts (and analysts) I can recommend the ITPROCeed wall on Eventifier.
I am sure everyone agrees that this first edition was a success. And this is only the beginning: the standard has been set. The bar can be raised. And for that the date of June 11th for the 2015 edition has already been pinned on the calendar.
See you at the 2015 edition of ITPROCeed!
Update 19/06/2014: All ITPROCeed content is now published on slideshare!
During the event we have had the chance to network and meet up with some great people. One of them was Jack Madden (@jackmadden) who is an expert in the field of Enterprise Mobility Management. We brought home a few copies of his new book on Enterprise Mobility Management. Jack was kind enough to sign the books for us – which adds some extra uniqueness to them.
We will be raffling these books during the next session Kenny and I are presenting, which will be at ITPROCeed in Antwerp this Thursday. If you have registered for the event then make sure to attend our session to have a chance on taking home a signed copy of the book.
See you at ITPROCeed!
Now that the Belgian edition of the Microsoft TechDays officially belongs to the past I am happy to see that new initiatives are being taken by Microsoft and the Belgian IT community to put new events on the agenda.
ITPROCeed is one of those events which will take place next week. The event is mainly focused on the IT Pro. With a total of four tracks (SQL, System Center, Azure and Office Services) there will be a broad variety of content being offered by various speakers.
I am honored to be a speaker at this event. Together with my friend and partner in crime Kenny Buntinx I will be delivering a session on mobile device management with Configuration Manager and Windows Intune. It is entitled Managing your hybrid Mobile cloud Workforce Demystified and below is the session abstract.
Do you need to manage Windows 8.1 / RT and/or other non-Microsoft mobile devices with Microsoft’s UDM Solution ( CM12R2 + Intune)? Do you need to provide functionality for deploying the new Intune Extensions such as email profiles, managing your MDM settings, configuring VPN and wireless profiles, deploying certs?
Compliance Settings , Company Resource Access and Intune Extensions delivered in Configuration Manager are mostly unexplored territory for the configmgr admin. During this session we will demystify these features for you.
Tickets for this event sold out a while ago – I hope you were in time to grab yours so you can be part of what will be the biggest IT Pro event in Belgium this year.
More details about the event can be found on the ITPROCeed website.
Hope to meet you there!
