    • Introduction to System Center Configuration Manager 2012 Adrian Stoian MVP www.adrianstoian.com Premium conference on Microsoft‟s Dev and ITPro technologies @itcampro / #itcampro
    • IT Camp 2011• Thanks for coming!• ITCamp is made possible by our sponsors: Premium conference on Microsoft‟s Dev and ITPro technologies @itcampro / #itcampro
    • Agenda• System Center Configuration Manager 2012 Overview• Architecture changes• Application Management• Client Agent Settings• Client Health• Compliance and Settings Management Premium conference on Microsoft‟s Dev and ITPro technologies @itcampro / #itcampro
    • Pillars of Investment Embrace user-centric management • Provide a rich application management model to capture admin intent • Allow the administrator to think users first • Provide the end user a fitting user experience to find/install software with • Allow the user to define their relationship to applications Modernize our infrastructure and core components • Redesigned hierarchy and SQL Server replication • Automated content distribution • Client Health improvements and auto-remediation • Redesigned admin experience and role-based security model • Native 64-bit and full Unicode support Continue to improve throughout the product • Software Updates auto-deployment (including Forefront definitions) • Automated settings remediation (DCM “set”) • Consolidated and expanded mobile device management • Improvements to OS Deployment and Remote Control • And much, much more…Premium conference on Microsoft‟s Dev and ITPro technologies @itcampro / #itcampro
    • Embracing User-Centric End-User of the Future• Tomorrows End-User is FAR More Tech Savvy Than Today‟s – “Digital Natives” have never known life without a PC – Consumerization of IT• How and Where Users Work Will Change – 2009 – 1 billion PCs, 3+ billion mobile devices – 2010 – 12-17 million iCafe PCs serving 300+ million users in the 3rd world• Tomorrow‟s IT Pro is in the Crosshairs – Demand for IT specialists will shrink 40% by 2010 – Increased balance of „versatilists‟ Premium conference on Microsoft‟s Dev and ITPro technologies @itcampro / #itcampro
    • System vs. User-Centric Systems Management of Today • Targeted at the device • Explicit and action-based • Software deployment is a glorified script execution engine • Optimized for systems management inside the firewall • Optimized for tight IT control, minimal end user involvement User-Centric Client Mgmt of Tomorrow • Targeted at the end user • Implicit and intent-based • Software deployment is about delivering the right app in the right way to the right user under the right condition • Enable the user to be productive anywhere and anytime • Maintain IT control while balancing the needs for end user empowermentPremium conference on Microsoft‟s Dev and ITPro technologies @itcampro / #itcampro
    • Embracing User CentricAdministrator Promises• App management model captures admin intent – Manage apps, not setup scripts • State-based • Apps have “relationships” to other objects • Apps can have >1 deployment type – Conditional Delivery Rules – requirement rules evaluated at install time to get the right app at the right time• Let the admin think user first – User Device Affinity maintains relationship between users and systems to solve core user targeting issues – Primary user rule – only install software if user is primary user on that device – Pre-deploy to users‟ primary devices for WoL, off-hrs, workgroup, etc Premium conference on Microsoft‟s Dev and ITPro technologies @itcampro / #itcampro
    • Embracing User CentricEnd-User Promises• “A Fitting End-User Experience” – Self-service application web portal • Easily find and request software for your job • Choose software intelligently thanks to clear, consistent and concise information about applications and their impact• “The ability to define their relationships to their software” – Application subscriptions persist your relationship with the software – User preferences control ConfigMgr behaviors (e.g. “my business hours”) • Manage impact from software installation and system restarts Premium conference on Microsoft‟s Dev and ITPro technologies @itcampro / #itcampro
    • Architecture changes Simplified HierarchyPremium conference on Microsoft‟s Dev and ITPro technologies @itcampro / #itcampro
    • Infrastructure Changes Modernizing the architecture• Primaries are needed for scale out only – Client agent settings configurable by collection – Segmentation via Role Based Access Control• Scalability and Data Latency Improvements – Central Administration Site (CAS) is just for administration and reporting • Other work distributed to the primaries as much as possible – System-generated data (HW Inventory and Status) can be configured to flow to CAS directly – File processing occurs once at the Primary Site and uses replication to reach other sites (no more reprocessing at each site in the hierarchy)• New replication methods for site-to-site communications – Industry standard SQL replication sub-system simplifies troubleshooting and reduces operational costs – Improved reliability over SMS/ConfigMgr‟s custom file replication Premium conference on Microsoft‟s Dev and ITPro technologies @itcampro / #itcampro
    • Infrastructure Changes Handling content• Sender Capable DPs – Apply throttling and other sender controls directly to DPs (reduce need for secondary sites)• Fewer DPs and Branch DPs required thanks to support for Win7 P2P (BranchCache) beginning with ConfigMgr 2007 SP2 • Vista, Server 2008 P2P coming post Win7• “State-based” DP Groups – Manage content distribution to individual DPs or groups of DPs – Content automatically added or removed from DPs based on group membership – DP group associations with collections automate content staging for software targeted to the collection Premium conference on Microsoft‟s Dev and ITPro technologies @itcampro / #itcampro

    • Infrastructure ChangesIntegrated SQL Reporting• 100% SQL Server Reporting Services – SQL Reporting Services 2008 SP1 required – ConfigMgr-to-SSRS report conversion tool available to ConfigMgr 2007 R2 customers – View subscriptions for reports – Launch SSRS Report Builder 2.0 for report authoring Premium conference on Microsoft‟s Dev and ITPro technologies @itcampro / #itcampro
    • Application ManagementUser Centric Approach Premium conference on Microsoft‟s Dev and ITPro technologies @itcampro / #itcampro

    • Compliance and Settings ManagementEvaluating compliance and remediation Premium conference on Microsoft‟s Dev and ITPro technologies @itcampro / #itcampro
    • Settings Management• Unified settings management across servers, desktops and mobile devices• ConfigMgr 2007 reports configuration drift – ConfigMgr 2012 can now enforce (Registry, WMI and Script-Based settings)• 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 Premium conference on Microsoft‟s Dev and ITPro technologies @itcampro / #itcampro
    • Compliance and Settings ManagementDEMO Premium conference on Microsoft‟s Dev and ITPro technologies @itcampro / #itcampro
    • Prepare for Configuration Manager 2012• Flatten hierarchy where possible• Plan for Windows Server 2008, SQL 2008, and 64-bit• Start implementing BranchCache™ with Configuration Manager 2007 SP2• Move from web reporting to SQL Reporting Services• Avoid mixing user and devices in collection definitions• Use UNC (servermyappmyapp.msi) in package source path instead of local path (d:myapp) Premium conference on Microsoft‟s Dev and ITPro technologies @itcampro / #itcampro
