Introduction of WMUG, Sponsor and line up of speakers, structure of the day and fire exits


Jason Sandys

Real-time ConfigMgr



Steve Beaumont

CMG lessons learned and support tricks whistle stop

Steve will share his real world experiences, tips and tricks from working with Cloud Management Gateways in a production environment.






Sam Erskine

Track changes and patch VMs in Azure (Windows or Linux) without SCCM and with zero infrastructure

SCCM is great for your full systems management needs but why would you use it in Azure.

In this session Sam Erskine takes you through the native capabilities in Azure (available to you) to meet your needs in the areas of change tracking, inventory management and patch management.

Easy to set up in just 1 click; well and just a few fields to fill in the form before the click.

This is a zero to hero session ; SCCM gurus have no fear, there is plenty of room in Azure for SCCM management if you still want to use your favourite tool.
