For those who were able to attend the MVP Community Camp last Saturday, a big thank you attending and for the positive feedbacks.

Great to hear that more and more you are utilizing System Center.

System Center enables robust management of heterogeneous datacenters, reduce datacenter complexity and enables common management that spans Windows Server and Windows Azure environments., be it provisioning, self-service or monitoring

Through this discussion,  we hope you see how System Center uniquely delivering on the key areas :

Hybrid IT – Consistent with the notion of Cloud OS, “hybrid” is built into System Center.   System Center truly enables common management that spans Windows Server and Windows Azure environments., be it provisioning, self-service or monitoring.
Enterprise-class performance:  System Center infrastructure management capabilities are enterprise grade and ready to use today.  Not only is System Center best-of-breed for Windows environments and Microsoft workloads (like Exchange, SharePoint and SQL) but it also enables robust management of heterogeneous datacenters.
•Reduce datacenter complexity: We’re constantly striving to reduce complexity in your datacenter by making it easy to provision, manage and operate infrastructure services with System Center.
Application focused: System Center has a relentless focus on optimizing your apps and workloads by arming you with rich insights to help you deliver predictable application SLA (after all,  apps are what your business cares about and infrastructure exists to support them)

As promised, here is the slide deck for VMM System Center VMM 2012R2 – Overview
