Microsoft SCCM

Infront Consulting can assist your enterprise with the deployment and management of Microsoft Systems Center Configuration Manager, so you can gain control over software, system, and patch management.

What is SCCM?

SCCM, or Systems Center Configuration Manager, is Microsoft’s software intended for the management of large groups of computers. SCCM provides owners with access to a plethora of features, namely software deployment, system deployment, patch management, and remote control. SCCM is versatile and can work with Windows, macOS, Linux or Unix servers, and even iOS, Android, or Windows mobile devices. SCCM’s remote control option allows the IT admin to control or manage a system regardless of physical location. Another tool that organizations find valuable is SCCM’s Report Generation, which allows IT personnel to create customized reports ranging from asset inventory to patch statuses of each device in the entire enterprise. Reports can also be customized to produce reports specific to the needs of the organization.

SCCM is most commonly used for software deployment; it provides installation and updating of applications and operating systems across a business enterprise. In doing so, SCCM helps to maintain consistency in system configuration and management. Rather than having each and every workstation built from scratch with individual settings, SCCM uses templates in the build process. All systems can have the exact same template used to build and configure the system, which saves time and ensures consistency.

When it comes to updating systems, many people use Windows Server Update Services (WSUS). SCCM does everything WSUS does and more by providing IT admins with a more active patching process. This process enforces updates: forcing systems to be patched, updated, and rebooted based on policies published by the IT department. However, it cannot validate applications once patched, nor can it control the status of individual nodes, or schedule individual patches. While SCCM alone has its limitations, it can become a completely automated patching tool.

As the person responsible for nurturing and developing System Center’s Regional SI Channel, I really value our relationship with Infront Consulting and the great work they have been doing for our customers in the APAC region. They improved the System Center partnering experience and ultimately resulted in more satisfied customers. Thanks for the great work.
