SCCM-Software Metering

Hi All, Every time I go to customer, majority (if not all), do not use this feature. This is really frustrating for me, because this is one of the features that I love. I normally understand why and I can summarize in the following list: 1- Customer does not know this feature even exist 2- Customer does not need this feature 3- Customer has already other software that does the same thing So let’s detail each point 1- Customer does not know this feature even exist This is a common scenario, SCCM is a huge, massive product with lots of features, not everyone know every single feature.

Before we start, I’ve focused on the version 1511 of the SCCM with some notes of what available on the 1602 and the latest version of intune, and I…

Cloud (and a bit of Microsoft Azure)

Hi all, I wanted to write something about cloud/azure for long, but time was a constraint for me while working on other things. Today, I finally make the time and I hope you’ll like it. This is my view of the cloud and Microsoft azure and what, again, I think, companies should understand before “moving” to the cloud. To start, what is cloud? Cloud is a concept, and the concept is simple (for me): It is a datacenter, owned by a 3rd party provider, that you trust and where you host your data, not knowing where your data is or who has access to it and you only pay for what you “use”. So let’s transfer this statement to Microsoft Azure. It is a datacenter = Microsoft Azure Owned by a 3rd party = Microsoft You trust and where you host your data = I hope this is yes (well…
