You’ve probably heard that Microsoft Management Summit is dead. Officially or not this seems to be the truth and we have to accept it. Of course if you are familiar with the System Center community you probably have learned that such decisions cannot just be accepted. Why? It is in our nature we are management community and we like to have control. So even before the death of MMS our community was ready with a backup plan and that is System Center Universe. SCU is the new MMS. The latest SCU was in Bern, Switzerland on 16th-17th September, the next event will be in Houston TX, USA on January 30th 2014 and plans are set for another SCU Europe event next year in September. But do not just trust me that SCU is the new MMS because I’ve said so and go to the official site of the recent SCU event and download the videos from the sessions and you will know why. Keep in mind that the time of this blog post not all videos are uploaded and more will be available in the coming days.
