On January 19 we will have a session with Nigel Cain, Senior Product Manager!

System Center Service Manager Integration


In this session, we will take a detailed look at how Service Manager integrates with Operations Manager (SCOM) and Configuration Manager (SCCM) to help you to more effectively manage systems in your data center, learn how to define and manage business services, manage change to those services and create incidents when components fail or degrade.
