In this series of single-ticketed articles, one of the most popular Microsoft network management solutions. The large volume of tasks and tasks in the medium and large organizations environment has made it impossible or difficult to manage the correct networks without getting involved with management products. The SCCM product is Microsoft's solution for centralized computer network management.
SCCM or System Center Configuration Manager is one of the most important parts of the Microsoft System Center Suite. SCCM helps you manage users and network devices in both the on-premises and on-premises environments as well as in the cloud environment.
The SCCM reduces the manual and non-automatic tasks of the IT sector and, as a result, has more time to address the more challenging challenges. One of the positive features of SCCM is that it is fully compatible with other Microsoft technologies and services available on the network and can be integrated with them.
Among these services are Microsoft Intune for managing mobile devices, WSUS for managing software updates, Certificate Service, Exchange Server, Exchange Online, and many other technologies.
The Configuration Manager also uses Active Directory Domain Services, Microsoft SQL Server, SQL Server Reporting Services, IIS and Background Intelligent Transfer Service, or BITS and Branch Cache, all of which are Microsoft's service hubs.
In order to successfully implement Configuration Manager, we need to consider many items before running it and in the design stage. Because the implementation of Configuration Manager will have a huge impact on the network environment and its non-standard implementation instead of facilitating management, the network administrator will face a lot of problems.
Microsoft also suggests that before launching in the real environment, be sure to implement your plan in the virtual environment and fix its bugs.
In order to better understand some of the SCCM applications, several scenarios that can be implemented with SCCM are described below.
- Need: Newcomers can work effectively from the first day.
Current Situation: When new employees enter the organization, you have to wait a long time for the software to be installed by the IT team after the first login.
Target Status: No need to wait, and after the first login, the user has installed the software.
- Requirement: Employees can at any time have additional software that they need on the computer.
Current Situation: If a worker needs a new software, he must file a request for Ticketing, and after a long time, IT staff will install it for him.
Target Status: There is an in-house website that employees log into the website when they need new software, and the software is installed immediately upon request by the user. If the application requires a license, you can adjust it so that installation after the user request requires the approval of the responsible person and immediately after approval, the software will be installed automatically.
Also, this website is configured to display only permissions for any user to install.
- Needs: Employees can use their mobile devices on the organization's network. But provided that certain conditions are met on their mobile devices. For example, they have used strong passwords. Their devices lock automatically after being inactive and can be erased remotely in case of theft.
Current status: Users can connect to the Exchange server to access corporate email with Mobile. But there is no guarantee that users have complied with security policies.
Target Status: Only users can use the corporate email service on their mobile devices to comply with the defined security policies.
- Needs: Employees can also be effective in situations that are not behind them.
Current status: If the employee is not at his desk and does not have access to his computer, he can not use the information and software installed on the system.
Target Status: Employees can access and use information from within their system from anywhere.
- Needs: Business continuity is maintained at the time of receiving updates and installing them and has no effect on the work.
Current status: At the peak of the sales unit, the employee system stops working due to an update and installs the update to restart. The user must wait a lot of time to update and the customer is a perspective.
Target status: Users can set their work hours and prevent updates at peak time.
As you can see, the SCCM product brings a variety of applications to the organization's network. For this reason, the single-ticketed website will post articles on how to design, install, and implement different scenarios. Follow the single tick and follow the single-ticker Telegram and Instagram.
