Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager

6/5/2012

Save hundreds of hours of work each year with the new Microsoft System Center 2012 Configuration Manager.

System Center 2012 Configuration Manager increases IT productivity and efficiency by reducing manual tasks and enabling you to focus on high-value projects, maximize hardware and software investments, and empower end-user productivity by providing the right software at the right time. Configuration Manager helps you to provide more effective IT services by enabling secure and scalable software deployment, compliance settings management, and comprehensive asset management of servers, desktops, laptops, and mobile devices.

Configuration Manager extends and works alongside your existing Microsoft technologies and solutions. For example:

  • Configuration      Manager uses Active Directory Domain Services for security, service      location, configuration, and to discover the users and devices that you      want to manage.
  • Configuration      Manager uses Microsoft SQL Server as a distributed change management      database and integrates with SQL Server Reporting Services (SSRS) to      produce reports to monitor and track the management activities.
  • Many of the      Configuration Manager site system roles that provide management      functionality use the web services of Internet Information Services (IIS).
  • Background      Intelligent Transfer Service (BITS) and BranchCache can be used to help      manage the available network bandwidth.

In addition, Configuration Manager can integrate with Windows Update Services (WSUS), Network Access Protection (NAP), Certificate Services, Exchange Server, Group Policy, the DNS Server role, Windows Automated Installation Kit (Windows AIK) and the User State Migration Tool (USMT), Windows Deployment Services (WDS), Remote Desktop and Remote Assistance.
