Microsoft System Center Configuration Management (SCCM)

October 31, 2014

Technology plays a vital role in all organizations. More and more devices and applications are entering our lives every day. Microsoft System Center Configuration Management (SCCM), formerly known as Systems Management Server (SMS), is a great way to maintain large groups of computers running a variety of operating systems including, Windows, Mac OS X, Linux, and Android, just to name a few.


SCCM can provide a variety of services for your school or business including:

  1. Remote Control
  2. Patch Management
  3. Software Distribution
  4. Full image deployment
  5. Network Access Protection (NAP)
  6. Hardware and Software Inventory and Asset Management

SCCM is best utilized in larger environments of more than 1,000 computers. The power and complexity of SCCM can be challenging for many smaller organizations. The resources required to implement and maintain such a large and complex tool can easily outweigh the automation benefits of SCCM. There are certainly other options available in the marketplace, but if you fit the profile you should consider SCCM.


Large enterprise customers and schools can often support thousands of computers, where SCCM’s wide range of features are most needed. K-12 School Districts, colleges, universities, and other large non-profit organizations find SCCM particularly appealing as licensing discounts from Microsoft are very generous.


Large enterprise users of SCCM often have complex needs. Implementations and upgrades must be carefully managed so as to not interrupt operations.
