Overview of System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager
System Center 2012 R2 Configuration Manager ConsultantsSystem Center Configuration Manager (SCCM) is a critical component of Microsoft's System Center suite of datacenter management platforms and is by far the world's most popular tool for streamlining desktop deployment and change management for enterprise desktops. The version of SCCM included with Microsoft System Center 2012 R2, known as SCCM 2012, offers significant enhancements over previous releases of Configuration Manager in the areas of provisioning devices, distributing software applications and keeping them current, checking and enforcing security settings, taking inventory of IT assets, managing cross-platform devices, providing self-service capabilities, and spanning on-premises, off-site, mobile, Cloud-based, and Windows-Azure environments. Capacity improvements to SCCM 2012 also allow you to support significantly more clients with fewer sites

Progent's Microsoft-certified consulting team has more than a dozen years of experience providing online and onsite help for organizations of all sizes to create change management solutions with Configuration Manager and its predecessor, Microsoft Systems Management Server (SMS). Progent can assist to design, integrate, operate, and troubleshoot SCCM 2012 by providing as-needed consulting services to fill in any gaps in your in-house expertise or deliver full project management support.

Progent can help you migrate to SCCM 2012 from earlier versions of Configuration Manager, consolidate various third-party management products into a single-console SCCM 2012-based solution, or optimize your current SCCM 2012 ecosystem to streamline your management processes, saving you time and money and providing a better end-user experience. Progent can also help you integrate SCCM 2012 with Microsoft Intune to expand SCCM 2012's reach to include web-facing mobile devices including Apple iPhones and iPads as well as smart phones and tablets powered by Google Android and Microsoft Windows. In addition, Progent's System Center 2016 Configuration Manager consultants can help you migrate efficiently to SCCM 2016 to help you manage on-premises and cloud-based resources in a hybrid cloud deployment.

New and Enhanced Capabilities of SCCM 2012
SCCM 2012 delivers important improvements over SCCM 2007 which address key areas such as Windows 10 management, client security with Microsoft Endpoint Protection, increased options for client provisioning and management, application distribution, self service, administration of web-facing along with domain-attached mobile devices, inventory tracking, and private cloud and Microsoft Azure support. (Learn about Progent's Microsoft Azure planning and cloud integration consulting services.) Major improvements include:

  • Support for Windows 10 Clients
    As of the release of Configuration Manager 2012 R2 SP1 you can use SCCM to deploy and manage Windows 10 clients. SCCM 2012 supports both wipe-and-load and in-place provisioning for Windows 10.
  • Improved Management for Apple iOS and Android Smart Phones and Tablets
    A company portal enables SCCM 2012 to manage Apple iPhones and iPads powered by iOS 6 and later. You can change and reset user passwords, distribute apps, and enroll, unenroll or wipe company content on these devices. For smart phones and tablets based on Android 4.0 and later, a management agent lets SCCM manage security and compliance settings such as password, camera, and encryption. You can also directly install Android apps. For devices enrolled as Company-owned, you can also inventory software.
  • Built-in Endpoint Protection
    Microsoft Endpoint Protection is integrated wit SCCM 2012 and enables you to manage antimalware policies and Windows Firewall security for clients within your SCCM 2012 hierarchy. You no longer have to install Endpoint Protection separately and SCCM 2012 includes a dashboard within the new Configuration Manager Console which can generate reports integrated with SCCM 2012 reporting.
  • The New Central Administration Site
    SCCM 2012 introduces the central administration site, which is intended to support multi-site hierarchies for large SCCM installations. The central administration site allows you to expand a stand-alone primary site into a hierarchy so that you can easily add additional primary sites as child sites. You can use a central administration site to configure hierarchy-wide settings and to monitor all sites and objects in the hierarchy.
  • Improved Configuration Manager Console
    An enhanced Configuration Manager console groups operations into logical workspaces: Assets and Compliance, Software Library, Monitoring, and Administration. All of these workspaces include comprehensive Search capabilities as well as a new browse-and-verify feature designed to reduce configuration errors and help identify and resolve problems.
  • Remote Connection Profiles
    Remote connection profiles in SCCM 2012 can provision the VPN and Wi-Fi profiles of Windows, Apple iOS, and Android-powered devices with the settings and certificates necessary to connect to work computers via Remote Desktop Connection.
  • Real-time Alerts
    SCCM 2012 can be set up to generate email alerts to notify multiple recipients that a site server, site system, or client state has passed an adjustable threshold and warrants attention and possible intervention. This capability is distinct from Endpoint Protection's anti-virus email notification system.
  • Integration with Microsoft Intune
    SCCM 2012 can be integrated with Microsoft Intune to enable management of iOS, Windows Phone and Android devices, offering capabilities such as defined ownership and selective wipe for web-facing mobile devices to go along with SCCM's core ability to manage domain-joined clients. The combination of SCCM 2012 with Microsoft Intune provides a single console for managing corporate-connected PCs, Macs and Unix/Linux servers as well as virtually all popular Cloud-connected smart phones and tablets.
