System Center Universe Says Farewell, For Now

The System Center Universe has been an amazing event with an amazing run. I’ve been part of this event every year since it’s inception. For those not privy to this conference, it was a well-run, community based, one-day event – gathering together top industry speakers to deliver a single day of System Center content . But, the true beauty of the event was how it simultaneously streamed the event live to User Groups all over the world.

I recently noted that the International portion of this event has already been merged into Experts Live in Europe. But, today, the System Center Universe web site tells the story of what will become of the U.S. version of the event.

The web site states…

Catapult greatly appreciates the Systems Center and Azure communities that have participated in the Systems Center Universe (SCU) event series. We have enjoyed hosting this worldwide event and simulcast that gathered the best technical talent in the Systems Center community for the last 5 years. We’ve also been blessed to have amazing sponsors and attendees, making this event truly unique. Currently, Catapult does not have plans to host Systems Center Universe in 2017.

We encourage you to engage with your local user groups and with the international SCU events, now known as Experts Live. Experts Live Europe can be found at:

Is this truly the end of the System Center Universe? Hmmm…it seems do doesn’t it?
