Hi Folks,

As you may know, the upcoming release of System Center Configuration Manager 2012 introduces a user-centric paradigm for desktop management that helps address the management challenge of consumer devices entering the workplace. A majority of users want flexible options to be more productive – they want to work from any device, from anywhere and expect always-on access to the corporate resources. IT organizations need a consistent way of managing diverse devices and users without compromising corporate compliance or security.  System Center Configuration Manager 2012 will enable the IT organizations to deliver rich, consistent experiences to every user, regardless of where they are located or what device they might be using while maintaining a unified management infrastructure.

To help bring you up to speed on the new features and functionality in Configuration Manager 2012, we are kicking off a new blog series this week.  These blogs will provide background on how the solution was developed, share best practices for implementation and administration, and highlight tools and guidance for configuring and operating the new release. We very much want this blog series to be a two-way dialogue – so please make sure to share your comments and questions. In the meantime, download the Configuration Manager 2012 Beta 2 trial and check out the evaluation resources.

We are genuinely excited to talk about the upcoming release of System Center Configuration Manager and engage with the passionate System Center community!

Thanks!
