System Center Night 23/04: Spring 2015 edition: The sessions

8:53 pm in events by Dieter Wijckmans


During feedback of our previous System Center night events we heard a lot of feedback concerning various topics. First of all we LOVE feedback.


It gives us the opportunity to even further tailor our evenings for your liking.

The 2 sessions for the System Center Night on 23th of April actually came out of this feedback:

“We need more sessions with notes from the field so we can instantly use it in our day to day work”

The 2 sessions on this evening will do just that. They will be packed with tips and tricks you can instantly use in your day to day work to even further explore the vast power of system center in your environment and experience new features you would not have noticed before.

This is the list of sessions for the System Center night 23/04:

Track: ECM

Speaker: Kim Oppalfens

Title: Configmgr Software updates – inside out

Abstract: Learn about the ins and outs of software updates from a seasoned ConfigMgr consultant. Software updates in Configuration Manager is based on WSUS and Configuration Items in Configuration Manager 2012. CI’s and state message based deployments can be somewhat challenging to get right and troubleshoot. Come and explore the inner workings of software updates with us during this evening session.


Track: CDM

Speaker: Dieter Wijckmans

Title: Monitorinception: Monitor your monitoring environment

Abstract: A monitoring environment is always judged by its ability to tell you when something is wrong. Preferably even when something is about to go wrong. We all know how many work you need to put in your monitoring environment to carefully monitor everything. Would be a shame to see it all go down the drain when disaster strikes at your company and SCOM was unable to alert due to itself being impacted due to bad maintenance. Check out this session to find out tips and tricks from the field to monitor your monitoring environment.
