• War on Cost III 2011 event coming 14 December

    And our free tour of London's top war related attractions continues as Inframon are set to host round III of their War on Cost event on December 14th at the Imperial War Museum in London. Last years event was probably the first public outing for a lot of the in-development System Center v.Next products by Microsoft's System Center team before their formal announcements at TechEd Europe 2010 which happened a few weeks…

  • Re-blog: System Center Operations Manager 2012 : Hurry up already!

    [Now that TechEd Europe 2010 has drawn to a close, it's ok to talk about this one! Check out Justin and Vlad's session over at the TechEd site here.] 

    Was a little exciting to get a first look at Operations Manager vNext 2012 while at the Inframon War On Cost event last Friday. And.... it looks remarkably similar to SCOM 2007 R2!

    Well I guess that it's still a way to go in the development timeline. They were looking…

  • System Center Mobile Device Manager: Not just for Windows Mobiles!

    So Wally Mead at last Monday's WMUG Config Manager session was a little coy about announcing what platforms were going to be supported in the Mobile Device Manager section of SCCM 2012. He said Nokia was definitely in there, but we'd have to wait and see for the rest.

  • Opalis 6.3 : T-minus 17 days (or less)

    Haven't had time to get playing with Opalis yet, but after checking out Adam Hall and Greg Chapman's session at the War On Cost event the other day I'm just itching to get started on it. But Adam announced there that the next version, v6.3, is going to be available before Thanksgiving on the 25th, the exact date he's keeping secret till he announces it at TechEd Europe this week. So I figure I'll wait just that bit longer…

  • System Center v.Next... Errrrr.... 2012 on it's way

    So I trooped along to the Inframon War on Cost event in London last Friday. This kind of acted as a warm up gig for the Microsoft System Center guys that were preparing to do their sessions at the Microsoft TechEd Europe 2010 event in Berlin this week. I managed to get there late due to issues at work that morning but it sounds like they had experienced an early Guy Fawkes night as something had gone pop in the power grid…
