Mickey Gousset Microsoft System Center

So the first day of MMS 2011 is now behind us.  It went really well. It focused mostly on Instructor Led Labs, with some break-out sessions.  I attended the session on SCOM MP Design, as well as using Data Protection Manager to bring back your Datacenter.  Both sessions were delivered very well, and I learned some cool content in both.

Last night was also the opening expo.  Infront has a booth (#346) at the show, and all of us were out in force to talk to customers and let them know all the ways that Infront could help them.  Believe it or not, even though you are on your feet for hours, this is probably the most fun part of the show.  I love getting to talk to old and potential new customers.  There is nothing like seeing the light go on in their eyes as you begin explaining some of the things Infront has done with System Center, and how we might be able to help them.

I also had several former students from the classes I teach come up and talk with me.  It gives you quite a good feeling to realize that you made a strong enough impression that they remember you a year later, and have made a special effort to come by the booth and say hello.

After the expo, it was back to the “Infront Crib” to plan for Day 2, and get a little work done.  Unfortunately, work life (or life in general) doesn’t completely stop for any conference.

For Day 2 my plan is:

  • Work our Infront Booth from 12:30 PM to 2 PM.  Come by and talk with me!  Tell me you read this on the blog! Come tell me your System Center woes, and let me see what we can do to help you turn those into successes.
  • Attend BRK BG01 – Using Service Manager for Incident, Change, and Problem Management – Starts at 10:15
  • Attend BRK BB03 – Operations Manager 2012 Overview – Starts at 2:15
  • Attend BRK BB04 – Operations Manager 2012 Setup and Configuration – Starts at 4

I LOVE this opportunity to network with people, so come by the booth and say hi. Or send me at email (mickey underscore gousset at hotmail dot com) and let’s set something up.  Or following me on twitter mickey_gousset and DM me there.  I’d love the chance to talk with you, see how you are using System Center, and see how we might be able to help you take that to the next level.

Day 2 here I come!
