System Center Configuration Manager 2007 released

Posted by David Hunter at 12:26 PM ET.

As promised in April, Microsoft announced on Monday that the successor to the venerable Systems Management Server (SMS) called System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) 2007 has been released to manufacturing.

The formal launch event is in November, so the usual marketing material is in short supply, but there is a useful, if somewhat dated, summary of new SCCM features at TechNet and for the heatseekers, there is a 120 trial evaluation of SCCM available for download and the full documentation library.

If this is all Greek to you, basically SCCM (and SMS before it) is a systems management application useful for system administrators at large enterprises who are responsible for managing the software configurations of all the various Windows client and server machines, and now with SCCM, Windows Mobile smartphones and Pocket PC phones. The emphasis is on operating system configuration and there is no coverage of non-Windows environments, but SMS has been a very popular labor and cost-saving tool and I would expect SCCM to be popular as well.
