In my role as Product Manager for Matrix42 every week i search through the internet to inform myself about news round about SCCM, find new ideas and identify key persons and events in the community. This takes really much time. For this reason, i had the idea to publish my search result on a more or less regular (but not weekly) base on my blog. Today i will start with my first entry about this. Please keep me informed, if you have information you miss here. Hope you enjoy this.
Documentation of SCCM
Microsoft moved their documentation about SCCM away from TechNet to the new documentation center. The new URL for all SCCM documentation is https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/sccm. Currently their is just the English documentation.
All documentation regarding SCCM 2012 R2 and earlier will remain on the TechNet.
New (SCCM?) Podcast
The world of 2016
Needless to say, but now everything is on 2016. Windows Server 2016 is released and available on all download platforms. But side by side, SCOM and SCSM are both released as 2016 version. For SCOM 2016 a first Update Rollup is always available here.
Current branch, servicing branch and LTSB
Microsoft released an article about the servicing plan in SCCM and how to deal with LTSB. I definitivly not recommend to choose this model, but i think its make sense to read. You’ll find the article here.
Here you’ll find an very good article about the support cycles of SCCM.
