ConfigMgr Applications Deep DiveMark Silvey and Dune Desormeaux (MS ConfigMgr Product Team) Join us for a deep dive on ConfigMgr Application Management. We look forward to answering your technical questions related to the newly released Software Center, the Application Catalog, the App Model and all other things “App”.

Veeam Management Pack for System Center – Scott Howard from Veeam will discuss and demonstrate their pre-built dashboards, reporting and root cause analysis features.

Moderated Discussion – A fairly new addition to our agenda, which we’ve received great feedback! At our meetings, we have had a great lineup of presentations from industry speakers, as well as from Microsoft – now we want to add more community involvement. Attending a user group meeting is more than just listening to presentations. It’s also about getting to know others in the room, sharing war stories, networking, and helping each other out. We want to get our attendees networking more, so we want to try something new. In the moderated discussion, we’ll agree on some topics to discuss, split into smaller groups to discuss among yourselves, and then recap discussions with the larger group. This helps us learn from each other, and build lasting relationships. Bring your hot topics!
