After the public-cloud hype, many companies found themselves locked-in to a number of service licenses provided by cloud vendors. These same companies also depended on their existing servers, virtual machines, and other legacy equipment. Their on-premise resources were not entirely replaced by the cloud, and they ended up in a hybrid multicloud ecosystem. In fact, 80% of their workloads are […]

We Have Great Things Planned for You at Microsoft Ignite 2019

We Have Great Things Planned for You at Microsoft Ignite 2019


Attending Microsoft Ignite 2019 this November 4–8 in Orlando, Florida? Perfect! We’re headed there too and are hoping for a chance to meet you. You can find us at booth #2626, where we’ll be showing Parallels® Mac Management for Microsoft® SCCM. It’s the only way you should manage Mac® computers in any Windows-dominated network—and we can’t wait to show you why.

One of the main tenets of Microsoft Ignite
2019 is diversity and inclusion. While we know this refers to people in an
organization, we also can’t ignore the parallels between that and what we’re
seeing more and more in our corporate networks. The truth is, over the past few
years, our once PC-dominated networks have been steadily infused with an
increasing number of Mac laptops and desktops.

In line with the spirit of Ignite, the best
way to handle this increasing diversity is to fully embrace inclusion. Most
organizations have already been managing their fleets of PCs with Microsoft
SCCM for years. Now that Mac computers are coming in, it would be best to
include them in SCCM rather than employing a separate management platform just
for Mac.

Here are some of the things you can do with
Parallels Mac Management right from the SCCM console:

  • Discover and enroll Mac devices
  • Enforce security and compliance
    policies
  • Conduct inventory and reporting
  • Manage Mac clients remotely via
    the Internet
  • Deploy macOS® software
  • Deploy macOS base images
  • Perform macOS patch management

Let’s discuss those and more at booth
#2626.

To make your visit really worth your while, we’re offering the chance to take home this Star Wars Imperial Star Destroyer (Ultimate Collector Series) LEGO Building Kit. This highly detailed LEGO has over 4,700 pieces and is sure to give you hours of Force-induced fun. To join the raffle, schedule a meeting with us and then visit our booth to have your badge scanned to be entered into our prize drawing.

If building a massive LEGO Imperial Star Destroyer isn’t your cup of tea, perhaps you’d like to join us for a stress-relieving, axe-throwing party instead! You heard that right—we’ll be sponsoring a cocktail party at Stumpy’s Hatchet House on November 5, open to all Microsoft Ignite 2019 attendees. Reserve your spot today.

Tickets for Microsoft Ignite 2019 sold out
the first week of September—people can’t wait to be there, and neither can we!
