The Microsoft Management Summit has always had a familiar scope of topics making it easy for attendees, or potential attendees, to select the specific track that was valuable to their daily job and fill up their week-long dance card.
This year, at MMS 2012, that has changed somewhat and the Tracks need a bit more explanation so you can find what you want. The list of old has been whittled down to six distinct areas.
This year’s Tracks include:
- Application Management – includes things like Windows Azure, System Center Virtual Machine Manager, System Center App Controller 2012, Operations Manager, and Performance Management.
- Client and Device Management – includes things like Windows 7, Windows Intune, System Center 2012 Configuration Manager, System Center 2012 Endpoint Protection, WEDM, VDI, Cross-platform Management, Microsoft Application Virtualization (App-V), Microsoft Enterprise Desktop Virtualization (MED-V), Microsoft Desktop Optimization Pack (MDOP), Windows Internet Explorer 8, Windows Internet Explorer 9
- Extra Credit – community sessions or sessions that don’t fit any other category.
