MNSCUG scores another nationally known speaker!
Our next MN System Center User Group meeting will be Wednesday, September 21st from 4:30pm to 7:30pm at Microsoft’s Bloomington HQ.
We’re proud to announce that Paul Thomsen, Solution Engineer for 1E will be our speaker! Odds are you already know who Paul is from attending one of his sessions at MMS or reading his blog. Paul has been the face of client health and monitoring for years with his work for Microsoft IT. Many of the startup health scripts used today came from Paul’s early work in this area. But his range of experience over 15 years has earned him a respect in the community as a well-rounded, knowledgeable figure in IT in general. We plan to give him plenty of time to answer questions. On the agenda:
- Observations of a ‘Computer Management Road Warrior’
- The joys of modern travel
- Corporate diversity / corporate priorities
- Technologies organizations are checking out
- The 1E perspective:
- What’s hot
- The impact of ConfigMgr 2012
- The product evaluation cycle
And because Paul now works for 1E we’ll be spoiled yet again with great food and drink!
As always, to help figure out the food and drink count, we ask that you register for the event.
