1 SCCM 2012 Features and Benefits Or: How I learned to stop worrying and love Centralized Administration

2 Unified Device Management User Centric Application Delivery Operating System Deployment Software Updates Integrated Endpoint Management Configuration Compliance Power Management Role Based Administration Software Metering, Asset Intelligence Other features

3 2003 2012 2011 2007 1999 SMS 2.0 1994 SMS 1.0 Evolution of Microsoft Client Management Client Management Infancy (NT Domain) Groups Model Comprehensive Management Laptops, Servers, Enterprise Scale Consumerization of IT Management from the Cloud

4 Unified Device Management Mac OS X Windows PCs (x86/64, Intel SoC), Windows to Go Windows Embedded Windows RT, Windows Phone 8 iOS, Android Linux System Centre Configuration Manager 2012 R2



7 Delivery Evaluation Criteria User Device type Network connection User/Device Relationships Primary Devices MSI App-V Non-primary Devices VDI Presentation Server Remote Desktop Deliver best user experience on each device Define application once Windows Embedded

8 Admin Administrators publish software titles to catalog, complete with meta data to enable search Deliver best user experience on each device Users can browse, select and install directly from Catalog Application model determines format and policies for delivery User


10 Application “Package” Keep your apps organized and managed App-V Windows Script CAB Windows Installer General Information Administrator Properties End User Metadata The “friendly” information for your users (appears in Catalog) Is app installed? Deployment Type Detection Method Install Command Requirement Rules Dependencies Supersedence Command line and options Can/cannot install app Apps that must be present Application version control


12 Client Settings Application Delivery End User Experience DEMO


14 CAS Primary Site MP Role Primary Site DP Role ImageTask Sequence Report WDS PXE Server Multiple Deployment Method Support PXE initiated deployment allows client computers to request deployment over the network Multi-cast deployment to conserve network bandwidth Stand-alone media deployment for no network connectivity or low bandwidth Pre-staged media deployment allows you to deploy an operating system to a computer that is not fully provisioned USMT 4.0 UI integration makes it easier transfer files and user settings from one machine to another Operating System Deployment


16 Security and Compliance Software Updates CAS Primary Site MP Role Primary Site DP Role Assigns policy to scan for update status or to deploy update Distributes updates Reports compliance Microsoft Update Primary Site SUP Role/WSUS Identifies who needs updates and reports on compliance Downloads updates Auto Deployment Faster deployment through search Schedule content download and deployment to avoid reboot during work hours State-based Updates Allows individual or group deployment Updates added to groups auto deploy to targeted collections Optimized for New Content Model Reduce replication and storage Expired updates and content deleted

17 Security and Compliance Endpoint Protection Unified Infrastructure Simplified server and client deployment Streamlined updates Consolidated reporting Comprehensive Protection Stack Behavior monitoring Antimalware Dynamic Translation Windows and Firewall Management

18 ConfigMgr MP Security and Compliance Settings Management (Desired Configuration Management) Baseline ConfigMgr Agent WMIXML RegistryIISMSI ScriptSQL Software Updates File Active Directory Baseline Configuration Items Auto Remediate OR Create Alert (to Service Manager) ! Improved functionality Copy settings Trigger console alerts Richer reporting Enhanced versioning and audit tracking Ability to specify versions to be used in baselines Audit tracking includes who changed what Pre-built industry standard baseline templates through IT GRC Solution Accelerator Assignment to collections Baseline drift

19 Create and manage power management profiles Enforce profiles based on usage statistics Different profiles “On Peak”, “Off Peak” Create reports showing usage data and power savings Users can “opt-out” (if we let them)

20 Week 1: Monitor Enable client management agent Begin monitoring usage and activity Non-Peak & Peak Week 2: Plan Continue monitoring on usage and activity Begin to develop Power Plan VM awareness (new compared to 2007) Copy power policies (new compared to 2007) Mid-Month: Power Plan has been confirmed Week 3: Apply Power policy Begin applying Power Plan End user opt-out (new compared to 2007) Week 4: Compliance & Analyze Review before and after usage and activity Determine savings in Kwh and Co2 saved

21 Role Based Administration John- IST Central System Administrator Louis-Software Update Manager for France Bob- US & France Security Admin Can see & update “France” desktops Cannot modify security settings on “France” desktops Cannot see “All Systems” or “U.S.” desktops Can see & modify security settings on “France” and “U.S.” desktops Cannot update “France” or “U.S.” desktops Cannot see “All Systems” Map the faculty roles to defined security roles Applications Manager OSD Manager Updates Manager Only “see” the computers and objects they can manage Reduces error, defines span of control for our environment

22 Asset Intelligence, Inventory, and Software Metering Software Metering & License Reports Asset Intelligence Service Asset Intelligence Catalog Real-time Application and Hardware Intelligence Track application usage Up to date, detailed inventory of both hardware and software Identify over or under licensing issues ConfigMgr Inventory


24 Exchange Connector Integration Easy configuration Simply enter exchange server/hosted URL and credentials Inventory Pulls data from Exchange Server Full and fast/delta synchronization Key info: user, deviceID, device type, last contact time Policy Parity with exchange: security, sync, device lockdown Define globally per Exchange Server Wipe Wipe a device from console action
