1:05 pm in Uncategorized by Dieter Wijckmans

We are entering the final preparations for the SCUGBE ECM/CDM day in Antwerp on the 19th of April and have a small surprise to announce.

We will be raffling great prices at the event ONLY for attendees present.

Among these prices we are giving away 2 Microsoft Bands of the second generation not available in Belgium (yet).

The reviews online are raving about this device as it could well be the best marriage between a smart watch and a fitness tracker yet. We will raffle one of in each track.

  • The possibility to ask your question at the ECM product managers which are exclusively joining the event
  • Getting insights in the next big things in Cloud and Datacenter management

This was Scugbe System Center Night Fall edition

9:17 am in Uncategorized by Dieter Wijckmans

 

Yesterday we had the perfect setting for our System Center night fall edition: light rain, chilly winds,… The perfect setting to just get indoors with a lot of System center peers and attend 2 top notch sessions about System center related topics.

Well this is not my perfect evening setting but still it is getting close. We were very delighted we had a full house and would like to thank all the attendees for taking the time to come over and participate.  We at scugbe enjoyed the fact that there was a lot of interaction in the audience and that so many of you joined our drink afterwards at the uiver in Zaventem. They just didn’t knew what hit them when we landed with 25 in the pub…

Thanks at Microsoft Belux as well to sponsor the venue and catering. Support which is much appreciated!
