System Center Products Moved to Semi-Annual Channel But NOT SCCM Configuration Manager ConfigMgr

System Center Products Moved to Semi-Annual Channel But NOT SCCM Configuration Manager ConfigMgr. Microsoft moved another suite of products also into the Semi-Annual channel of releases. A few months back Windows 10 also moved to Semi-Annual channel releases.

So it seems Microsoft is trying to streamline the release management channel for all their products. I don’t think SCCM is included in these Semi-Annual channel updates. But it’s interesting to see that Neowin reported that SCCM is also part of the Semi-Annual channel.

I agree that the SCCM is part of System Center Products as per Microsoft official site here. But SCCM doesn’t follow semi-annual channel of released. Instead, SCCM follows 4 month update channel.

Microsoft never mentioned that System Center Semi-Annual release management applies SCCM. It’s clear that only other products like DPM, SCOM, VMM, Orchestrator, SM, SMA, and SPF are moved to semi-annual update channel.

Microsoft System Center offers enterprise-class datacenter management for your heterogeneous IT environments. System Center, version 1801 (semi-annual channel) and download the evaluation version from here. There is NO download available for SCCM on the list.
