Do you feel like you’re always in crisis mode? Do you want to learn what it takes to become a proactive and rationalized IT shop? Are you ready for the cloud? In this session, we will address these issues and more as we explore the Microsoft management stack. We’ll look at both on-premise solutions and an achievable pathway to the cloud.

Join us and learn how to get more from your most precious asset – your time.

See the Forest and the Trees with Strategic Infrastructure Management

Take control of your IT infrastructure with the management packs for System Center Operations Manager (SCOM).
