SCOM admins are getting ready for the migration from SCOM 2012 to SCOM 2016. What is the release date of SCOM 2016 ? I don’t know but I heard from various sources (similar to this here) that System Center 2016 will be released in September 2016. Loads of new exciting features will be included in SCOM 2016. My recommendation would be to try the Technical Preview versions of SCOM 2016. You can download the SCOM 2016 TP5 from here. Some of the new features I like in SCOM 2016 are Management Pack Updates and Recommendations, Extensible Network Monitoring, Maintenance Schedules, Extend Operations Manager with OMS, Partner Program in Administration Pane and Monitoring Nano Server and Workloads.
Savision is arranging a Live Online webinar on what’s coming in SCOM 2016. It will be basically about what’s coming in SCOM 2016, the new features and best practices to migrate to SCOM. It will also include live demos and a Q&A session at the end of the session, where people can ask the experts any questions they have. The session will be hosted by 3 experts: –
Microsoft Product Manager – Mahesh Narayanan
MVP John Joyner
MVP Bob Cornelissen
When :- It will be held on August 17th, at 4pm (Amsterdam time) 9 am (Central Daylight Time/US)
