Kelverion Runbook Studio Release 1.2 with support for Azure Automation and SMA

Azure Automation is an incredibly powerful tool but it does require a high degree of PowerShell knowledge and necessities a constant internet connection to be able to develop anything. We realised at Kelverion that this need for PowerShell knowledge and the internet connection would be a stumbling block for Azure Automation adoption at most customers because not every IT engineer mumbles PowerShell in the sleep and certainly the 1st and 2nd line guys don’t speak PowerShell so who is going to support the automation on a day to day basis.   So we released our Kelverion Runbook Studio tool which provides rich graphical authoring of Azure Automation Runbooks without the need for a permanent internet connection. We are now pleased to announce the release of version 1.2 of the Runbook Studio, wh...

Brad Anderson’s Lunch Break; Season 3 Preview

Brad Anderson, a good friend to myITforum over the years has had some small success with an ongoing YouTube series where he talks to industry people while he drives during lunch. Think the Jerry Seinfeld “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee” series and you’re close to understanding the theme of this show, except there’s rarely coffee and the comedic flair is themed differently. However, the content is good and interesting. Season 3 is about ready to kick-off and the preview is available today.

Sunsetted Features for System Center Configuration Manager

Microsoft is continually adding new features to System Center Configuration Manager through its latest Windows 10-like, aggressive updating procedures. But, as things are added – are any features being deprecated at the same time? You bet. Fortunately, Microsoft is keeping a list using its latest Microsoft Docs resource. Let’s just hope the System Center teams are better at keeping the list updated than the Windows 10 teams providing public knowledge of new Windows 10 features/fixes/patches.
