System Center Universe Europe

We recently attended System Center Universe Europe where we spent much of our time discussing System Center and Azure with some of the most knowledgeable people in the industry. We learnt that the cloud is now starting to reach critical mass and whether you are on-board or not, it is here to stay.

The event was packed with announcements and exhibitions highlighting the growth of the cloud:

> There is now virtual desktop infrastructure (VDI) hosting in Azure, meaning no hardware costs, simple image management and access from any device, anywhere – this includes Apple Macs and iOS devices

> Self-Service just about anything. Give the power to users, give responsibility to the managers, leaving you to focus on the important tasks

> Automation, automation, automation. No you are not about to be replaced by a string of code, you are about to be set free. It’s Friday afternoon and you need to complete that weekly task to process the reporting for management. Why are you doing it manually? I challenge you to find one of our consultants that cannot get it automated for you

So ask yourself this, what’s stopping you? Cost? Time? Skills? Job Security?

These fears have all been common in the feedback we’ve received this week, but once you sit down and talk it through you will see there is nothing to worry about – it is only going to make life easier for you and your users. Why not book a workshop with one of our consultants and get your cloud journey started.

I can almost hear the sighs of relief already.
