Microsoft gives Config Manager the service overhaul – Computerworld

Microsoft will soon kick off a faster update and upgrade cadence for System Center Configuration Manager (SCCM), the cornerstone of the company’s enterprise-grade System Center device management suite.

The more frequent updates are meant to align the core PC management functionality with the accelerated cadence of Windows 10, Microsoft latest operating system, analysts said.

“This plays perfectly with Microsoft’s strategy with mobile now getting updates from the cloud, but also signals something bigger,” said Rob Young of IDC. “Updates for Config Manager will be just like the [Windows 10] OS, not big, heavy complex upgrades, but smaller and more frequent.”

The Windows 10 model, as pitched by Microsoft, relies on a regular evolution of the software — it’s never truly “finished” — with multiple updates annually as opposed to the old-school strategy of releasing an entirely new OS every three or four years.
