Microsoft Sets Fall Launch for Configuration Manager

Microsoft Monday said development is complete on its System Center Configuration Manager 2007, a cornerstone in its model for managed IT systems, and that the management tool will ship in November. For users moving from the pervious version called System Management Server the release represents an upgrade, but for those tracking Microsoft's Dynamic Systems Initiative (DSI), a 10-year plan to build a management platform for Windows, it represents a beginning and an end.

SCCM 2007, which was released-to-manufacturing Monday, is key to the company's far-reaching DSI plan and is the third product that Microsoft has shipped that supports its System Definition Model (SDM) language. SDM is a linchpin in DSI, serving as the foundation that servers and applications use to define their optimum health and operational needs and communicate that data to the network.
