    • CDH System and User-CentricConfiguration Manager 2007 Configuration Manager 2012Optimized for Systems Management • Still committed and focused on Systemscenarios Management scenarios• Challenging to manage users: • Embrace User Centric scenarios: • Forced to translate a user to a device • Moving to a state based design, for • Explicit: run a specific program on a apps, deployments, content on DPs. specific device • Full application lifecycle model. Install, Revision Mgt, Supercedence and Uninstall• Software Distribution is a glorified script • Understand and intelligently target the execution relationships between user systems • Management solution tailored for applications
    • Embracing User Centric:CDH Administrator Promises• Let the administrator think user first – Deploy applications to users – Manage users beyond the desktop• ConfigMgr maintains relationship between users and systems to solve core user targeting – Set conditions to control installations – Schedule ‘Pre-deploy’ to users’ primary devices for WoL, off- hrs, workgroup, etc.• ConfigMgr will remember the relationship between the user and their applications• Application model captures ‘administrative intent’
    • CDH Application Model Keep your apps organized Administrator Properties and managed General information about the application The “friendly” informationApp-V End User Metadata for y your users Deployment Type Workhorse for applicationWindowsScript Detection Method Is app installed?

    • User Centric – DeviceCDH Management
    • “Depth” Mobile DeviceCDH Management• Establishes mutual trust between the device and the management server• Devices enrolled and provisioned securely over-the-air – Admin (or end user) registers new mobile device and receives one-time PIN from Site Server – Admin sends PIN and enrollment instructions to user – Simplified end user experience and deployment User enrolls via Enroll utility on mobile device
    • “Light” management viaCDH Exchange• Provide basic management for all Exchange ActiveSync (EAS) connected devices• Features Supported: – Discovery/Inventory – Settings policy – Remote Wipe• Supports on-premise Exchange 2010 and hosted Exchange
    • Embracing User Centric:CDH End-User Promises• User preferences to control ConfigMgr behaviors: – “My business hours” – used to control when to install software – Presentation mode – don’t notify when presenting – Remote control settings – when allowed, end user can control their experience
    • Embracing User Centric:CDH Software Catalog
    • Embracing User Centric:CDH On Demand InstallationProcess Flow Web Site Site Server • User clicks “install” on Catalog item 1 • Web site checks user’s permissions to install 2 • Web site requests Client ID from ConfigMgr client agent and passes it to 3 Site server • Server creates policy for the specified client and app and passes it to client 4 Melissa • Client agent evaluates requirements from the policy and initiates installation 5 • Client agent completes installation process Agent and reports status 6
    • CDH Collection Enhancements
    • CDH Client Activity and Health• Product integrated health and remediation solution• Server side metrics for evaluating client activity: – Policy Requests – Hardware and software Inventory – Heartbeat DDRs – Status Messages• Client side monitoring/remediation for: – Dependent Windows components and services – ConfigMgr client prerequisites – WMI Repository and namespace evaluation – In console and Web reporting• ‘In-console’ alerts when healthy/unhealthy ratio drops below configurable threshold
    • CDH Software Updates• Auto Deployment Rules – Use search criteria to identify class of updates to automatically deploy: category, products, language, date revised, article id, bulletin id, etc. – Schedule content download and deployment based on sync schedule or define a separate schedule per rule• State-based Update Groups – Deploy updates individually or in groups – Updates added to an update group automatically deploy to collections targeted with the group
    • Power ManagementPhase 1: Monitor•Enable client management agent•Begin monitoring usage and activity Non-Peak & PeakPhase 2: Plan•Continue monitoring on usage and activity•Begin to develop Power PlanMid-Month:•Power Plan has been confirmedPhase 3: Apply Power policy•Begin applying Power PlanPhase 4: Compliance & Analyze•Review before and after usage and activity•Determine savings in Kwh and Co2 saved
    • CDH Settings Management• Unified settings management across servers, desktops and mobile devices• ConfigMgr 2007 reports configuration drift – ConfigMgr 2012 can “set” for Registry, WMI and Script-Based• Improved functionality: – Copy settings – Define compliance SLAs for Baselines to trigger console alerts – Richer reporting to include troubleshooting, conflict, remediation information• Enhanced versioning and audit tracking – Ability to specify specific versions to be used in baselines – Audit tracking includes who changed what
