Arizona Systems Management User Group 10-year Anniversary Meeting – A Taste of MMS Recap

img_0731The Arizona Systems Management User Group 10-year Anniversary Meeting – A Taste of MMS has come and gone. It was a fantastic way to celebrate 10 years of AZSMUG with an all-star line up and a surprise special guest, David James – Director of Engineering for Configuration Manager.

 

 

Kicking off the meeting, Peter Daalmans started the day presenting Session 1 on How to cope with the rapid release of ConfigMgr.

Lunch was presented by our gold sponsor 1E. The pizzas were so large, user groups in Texas would be jealous.

1E’s Shaun Cassells presented the lunch time sponsor session – Windows 10 Servicing in the Real World.

After lunch we jumped right into Session 4 of the day with the All Speakers (plus David James) Q&A. This turned out being an excellent interactive discussion with great insights on things from David and Michael Niehaus. Everyone was engaged even after those extremely large pizza slices.

We also posted several Twitter polls throughout the day and used these as discussion topics during the Q&A (BTW if you are not on Twitter, get on Twitter!):

Poll 1: What version of ConfigMgr are you using in production?

 

Poll 2: How many ConfigMgr clients do you manage?

 

Poll 3: Are you using Microsoft EMS today?

 

Poll 4: What version of SQL are you using with ConfigMgr?

 

Poll 5: Do you have ConfigMgr integrated with Intune?

 

Poll 6: When do you plan on deploying Windows 10?

Michael Niehaus presented Session 5 on What’s new for enterprises in Windows 10 1607.

The examples that he covered can be download from his blog. Midway through Greg’s session the Midwest Management Summit afternoon cake arrived and it was yummy.

Wrapping up the day for a final speaker picture. Thanks again to all of the speakers for presenting and our sponsors Microsoft, 1E, Coretech, Midwest Management Summit and Parallels for making this event possible. I am already looking forward to the 20-year anniversary meeting!
