Like I already mentioned in my previous post about MMS 2006, Bob Muglia announcend a few other things.The first one is the rebranding of some of our products to the System Center Brand name.
This means that the products like SMS and MOM will be changed into:
With that branding Bob also announced a new product called System Center, codename "Service Desk"
What is really great about this product is the tight integration with our products like MOM and SMS, in the console the Support Engineers can see where a call or incident has been reported from, this can be from MOM which founds for instance an issue onto the Exchange environment or can be a support call.
We plan to release a public beta of System Center, codename "Service Desk" in H1 of 2007.

The last two announcements during the keynote where that we are working on a management software for managing Virtual Server environment called codename "Carmine", he did not disclosed any information about that product, more information will follow in the coming months.
The second announcement was that the "WS-Management" has been accepted as a standard by DTMF. WS-Management is a new web-services specification that provides a common way for systems to remotely access and exchange management information.
