Comprehensive Configuration Management Built to Scale
SCCM 2012 allows administrators to centrally control and manage application deployments, OS deployments and OS management and maintenance from a central location. Allowing administrators to reach their entire fleet, Microsoft’s SCCM will reduce the TCO of ICT systems through centralisation and automation.
Operating System Deployment –provides a highly flexible, automated solution to fully deploy and configure servers and desktops from any state, including bare-metal deployments. IT staff can provide an end-to-end solution for the desired version of Windows, by delivering applications, updates, patches, security fixes and more from a single distribution.
Software Updates – provides an integrated solution to deploy software and hardware updates seamlessly across physical, virtual and mobile devices regardless of location. SCCM 2012 simplifies update management for complex environments, helping to reduce IT costs and keeping IT systems up-to-date, stable and secure.
SCCM 2012 delivers updates for Microsoft products, third-party applications, custom in-house line-of-business applications, hardware drivers and system BIOS.
Mobile Device Management – combines the best aspects of Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync, Windows Intune. It allows enterprises to give employees the freedom to use whatever devices they need to be productive, while helping keep the IT environment secure and compliant. SCCM 2012 can manage a wide range of mobile devices, including Windows Phone 7 and 8, Nokia Symbian, Apple iOS and Android-based devices.
Asset Intelligence and Inventory – has been significantly enhanced in SCCM 2012 in order to cater for both physical and virtual environments. Power Management – allows organisations to gain control over power consumption with tools that provide reporting on power consumption and cost savings, reduce energy costs and carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions, check compliance and remediate non-compliance and much more. These capabilities are all delivered in a unified client management and security infrastructure, making power-related cost savings available with minimal effort and expense.
Client Health and Monitoring – provides summary views of client health data in its unified console, giving IT staff a real-time look at the overall health of the client environment.
Remote Client Management – allows more effective management of clients connected over the internet, giving IT staff the ability to provide application and security update deployment as well as deliver remote assistance and support.
Enhanced Infrastructure Efficiency – increases productivity of administrators by reducing infrastructure requirements, consolidating server roles, reducing data latency and improving scaling.
User Centric Management – allows software to be associated to a user instead of a machine, allowing applications to follow users regardless of which machine they are logged into.
Conditional Application Delivery – automatically determines whether a user is on a virtual machine, mobile device, terminal server or a traditional PC and then determines the best way to deliver the application – choosing between streaming the application, App-V publishing it on a presentation or through traditional software deployment methods.
Self-Service Software Portal – applications are now available for on-demand installation from a self-service web portal. This allows for less user disruption and reduces the burden on IT support staff.
Automatic Remediation – allows administrators to facilitate automatic remediation of devices that deviate from a defined baseline configuration, such as antivirus definition files.
Role Based Access Control – or RBAC allows administrators to delegate security privileges based on several pre-defined role groups. RBAC also controls the SCCM administration console, so features that an administrator does not have permission to modify are not displayed.
