What's Cooking in System Center 2012
Remember the good old days, when it was common in IT circles to say something to the effect: "I've never been fired for recommending IBM"? Replace IBM with Microsoft and that's what you could have said for the last two decades. But the times, they are changing.
Online News Editor Kurt Mackie has an interesting overview of the features coming in System Center 2012, which is expected later this year. A big part of the feature list is its cross-platform management capabilities. You might think of this feature as Microsoft's acknowledgement that many of its customers are no longer Microsoft-only shops. Managing and distributing updates and patches to systems and devices outside the realm of Windows servers, PCs or Windows Phones is smart thinking. Microsoft needs a few more good ideas like that.
