Belgium System Center Day : Agenda

6:54 am in Belgian System Center Day by Kenny Buntinx [MVP]

Last year we did a SCUG.Be user group session with Wally Mead and it was a great success .

I am very excited to announce that we are going to organize a new SCUG.Be event in Belgium on the 3thd of November called :”Belgium System Center Day“. For this occasion we have some top international speakers like Wally Mead, Travis Wright, Jason Buffington, 4 Belgium System Center MVP’s and other System Center Experts and that’s why the event will also be held in a special place

This event will also be your opportunity to socialize with fellow System Center administrators and consultants , meet with one of the most popular Microsoft speakers of all time and have a nice lunch with the 4 Belgian System Center MVP’s and the System Center product managers! One thing is certain , Wally Mead is back :-)


I will deliver a presentation called : Configuration Manager 2007 R3 Power management  : Lessons learned from the field

Session Abstract :

The R3 release covers some very cool new features and one feature I can share is that this release covers power management for your clients.

This will reduce your energy consumption which saves you costs and you build a Greener IT environment. But talking about the feature is something different than implementing it .

In this session we will talk about best practices when implementing the R3 power management features, build on the experience that we had during one of my customers R3 TAP program.
