Once you check out and take some time off, lots of stuff goes down. Like the release of the System Center 2012 suite of software. This is, to quote Microsoft, a game changer. A unified installer, and new versions of the different management components gives you a whole new level of control.
The whole suite is now better prepared to cooperate and you can automate lots of steps thanks to Orchestrator. This makes it easier for IT to deliver their services to the business in an automated and efficient way, previously only possible by using third party products and addons.
