11:18 am in Uncategorized by Dieter Wijckmans


Increase your visibility in the System Center community.


The System Center user Group (scug) Belgium is proud to announce the 2013 edition of Best of MMS. This is the largest community driven event about Microsoft System Center in Belgium with a broad variety of attendees.

This year the members of the scug attended the Microsoft Management Summit in Las Vegas to discover all the new evolutions in the System Center suite. This knowledge will be shared with the community during this off-line event on 19th of June in Antwerp.

During this event we will be joined by Wally Mead, Senior Program Manager for System Center Configuration Manager (aka The Godfather of ConfigMgr).  He’s been in the Configuration Manager product group for the past 20 years, working on all versions of the SMS/Configuration Manager product.

Wally will provide 2 in depth sessions. The other sessions will be presented by the Belgian Enterprise Client Management and Cloud & Datacenter MVP’s and other SCUG members with in depth technical knowledge with surrounding System Center technologies.

Scug is a non profit organization driven by a group of community members who are passionate about the System Center Suite. This event is a paying event for attendees. To keep the entrance price as low as possible we are currently looking for companies to support this event by investing in one of the sponsorship deals (more info on the right column).

Business Continuity used to be very expensive or impossible for many organizations. It included complex technologies and hardware solutions. With System Center and Hyper-V, you can now add several new layers to your defense on an easy, affordable way. Join Mike in this session to see Hyper-V replica, Data Protection Manager and Backup to the cloud as great tools for your Business Continuity plan.
Speaker: Mike Resseler
Level 300


The day is divided into 2 main tracks (DEV and IT-PRO) which are also divided into to 2 separate tracks, giving you plenty of chance to choose a session that is right for you. All the content is brought to you by top notch community speakers with plenty of hands-on experience.

14 user groups will outperform themselves to bring you their view on Microsoft products in more than 25 sessions. 2013 is not a release year for Microsoft so far, so that gives us, the community, the opportunity to do deep-dive sessions in interesting topics. The biggest goal of this edition is bringing you high-quality sessions. And we’re pretty sure we have achieved that

The presale will kick of the second week of May and if I were you I would not wait long to register your seat as previous editions sold out quickly.
