System Center Universe 2016 North America Arrives After New Year

As the holiday season is fast approaching, 2015 has only around 10 days left. The first big System Center community event in 2016 would probably be System Center Universe North America, which is going to take place at Dallas, Taxes. As you may or may not know, System Center Universe was originally started by my friend and fellow CDM MVP Cameron Fuller few years ago. As Cameron is currently busy organising this event, he has asked us to help him spread the words. I’m more than happy to do so because in my opinion, the System Center Universe “franchise” would

Spend Your Money Wisely

As what I’d like to consider myself as – a seasoned System Center specialist, I have benefitted from many awesome resources from the community during my career in System Center. These resources consist of blogs, whitepapers, training videos, management packs and various tools and utilities. Although some of them are not free (and in my opinion, they are not free for a good reason), but large percentage of these resources I value the most are all free of charge. This is what I like the most about the System Center community. Over the last few years, I got to know

Next Step in My Career

  Back in September 2011, after a short and unpleasant contracting experience, I joint a large Australian retailer as a senior systems engineer, focusing on their System Center infrastructure. I chose this company because the office location is close to home, the role was interesting (have a VERY large System Center environment to play with), and my wife and I were expecting a baby so I thought a permanent role suited me better. Now looking back the 3.5 years I have spent there, I have involved in multiple System Center implementation and upgrade projects, written countless amount of management packs,
