Competition voting assistance requested

September 9, 2008 at 1:09 pm in Uncategorized by The WMI guy

Hi all,

 I am not in the habbit of posting personal info/requests on my blog, but I am going to violate my own policy on that for just this once. It’s for a greater cause.

 The belgian nivea website currently has a competition running to award
people with a “beautifull heart”. A friend of mine was entered into the
competition for trying to keep running a childrens welfare center in Nepal in extremely difficult circumstances.

I would like to ask you all for just 2 minutes of your time to visit the
below website, and click on the button “Stem”, which is dutch for vote.

You would be doing me a huge favour with this.

Microsoft System Center: Designed for BIG

September 25, 2007 at 4:26 am in Uncategorized by alkin

Microsoft System Center. Designed for big

Seems that the MS Marketing Machine is starting to target the Belgian market, as I got an e-mail about MS System Center being designed for very big companies…
On the promoted website, you can find case studies for big companies like Dell, EDS, HSBC and Nissan.

 Maybe a nice website to convince your future customers why they should hire you as their SCOM2007 consultant 😉

Practice Session: Vereenvoudig uw systeembeheer met Microsoft System Center 2007

September 24, 2007 at 11:52 pm in Uncategorized by alkin

Systemen beheren,
IT-problemen diagnosticeren en oplossen,… Het is vaak kunst en
vliegwerk. Om het hoofd boven water te houden, gebruiken ICT-managers
verschillende managementoplossingen naast elkaar. Deze oplossingen
beperken zich echter tot het monitoren van een bepaald deelgebied.
Bovendien zijn deze tools vaak complex waardoor de functionaliteit niet
100 % wordt benut. Eén tool voor het beheer van uw servers,
applicaties, randapparatuur en virtuele omgeving is dan ook meer dan
wenselijk. Hoe zorgt Microsoft System Center 2007 voor het beheer van
uw datacenter? Wat zijn de integratiemogelijkheden met andere producten
en hoe wordt een maximale uptime gegarandeerd? U verneemt er alles over
tijdens deze Practice Session.

Met uitgebreide live demo en Microsoft als gastspreker.

Welcome to the newly created System Center User Group!

 What's the System Center User Group?

Its a blog created by IT pro's and for IT pro's with a focus on System Center. All of the founders of this blog followed the Opsmgr 2007 course  given by Rory Mccaw himself !  It was  a very good  one, we  learned  a  lot  but  some  issues  we  encounter  could not be solved . So we tought it was a good idea to keep in touch and to create a blog.

The main goal of this blog will be to share our experience, problems and of course solutions.


So lets start posting!
