MMS 2013 is right around the corner. While at the conference, I will be delivering one session and appearing as a guest in a second one. In each session I will be demonstrating solutions based on the interaction between System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1 and System Center 2012 Orchestrator SP1. Come check them out and feel free to grab me before, afterwards, or at any point during MMS 2013 for an introduction.

Complex Maintenance Using System Center 2012 Configuration Manager and Orchestrator: Patching a Cluster

During this session, learn how the integration of Configuration Manager and Orchestrator can make the task of applying software updates or service packs to complex systems, an automated, predictable, and stress-free activity. You will have the opportunity to explore complete Runbook examples, automation scripts, and end-to-end demonstration of a complex yet automated maintenance cycle. Be prepared to view script samples and discuss the process at a technical level. The goal of this session is to arm you with the knowledge you need in order to position Configuration Manager and Orchestrator as a flexible maintenance solution that is able to handle the most complex system configurations.

Notes From the Field: Complex and Massive Configuration Manager Migrations

Find out what it takes to migrate a massive complex environment. This session will focus on the challenges of managing and moving an environment consisting of over 120,000 globally dispersed clients from Configuration Manager 2007 to System Center 2012 Configuration Manager SP1. We will discuss the planning process, the required pre–migration work and finally the migration implementation.
