Cheops

Continuous Management (Kurt van Hoecke + Jan van Meirvenne)

The IT landscape is in a process of transformation. Cloud-based computing has entered the mainstream market and is changing the way we build and deliver services. With that transformation comes new capabilities and requirements. This includes the need for a management platform that can provide insights into new types of services that can change at an incredible rate.

Collection evaluation revisited (Kim Oppalfens)

All management activities in ConfigMgr target collections and thus collections are arguably the most important object to know about and get right. The split up of device and user collections in ConfigMgr 2012 was just a side-effect of much deeper changes under-the hood. In this session our goal is to dive under that hood and see what truly happens when you modify or update collections including incremental collections, collection query rules, collection evaluation, and limiting collections to name just a few.
What you will learn:

  • · Don’t use a CAS
  • · Collection evaluation in depth
  • · Incremental collection evaluation limits
  • · Proper limiting collection usage
  • · How to kill your DB – or better yet, how not to kill your DB with collection evaluation
  • · How to monitor collection evaluation and what to do when it goes wrong

This session will provide a timeline, past -present -future, on how the Microsoft management platform is evolving to cope with these trends.

So please register your seat ASAP as seats are limited and come and enjoy a Scug.be night before going on that long overdue vacation.
