Abstract

Today's desktop computing environment is complex. Software eccentricities, security threats, demanding students and faculty members - why make your life harder than necessary as a desktop administrator? A strong and flexible workstation management platform is an absolute "must" in these trying times. Microsoft's System Center 2012 Configuration Manager is as robust a tool as they come. Deploy software and operating system images with ease. Another Java exploit causing problems? Don't shudder - own that update process! Certain large software companies got you down with the threat of a software license audit? Sleep soundly, knowing the asset intelligence built into Configuration Manager has your back. This session will seek to explore the ways Config Manager can make your life easier as a desktop administrator. Even experienced desktop admins should come away with some new tricks!
