  • Do you think SCCM is really important to learn?

    Hi,

    I am just learning SCCM and was wondering why all the companies require IT staff to know it. What is so great about the product?

    I don't think it is "all the companies" but for larger environments it offers a vital toolset to make administration easier.

    Consider that you can use it to:
    Inventory hardware and software
    Monitor software usage
    Deploy applications (installed and virtualised)
    Deploy operating systems (including zero touch deployment)
    Generate install images from reference machines

    Add extra features like:
    Maintenance windows
    Remote management
    Power Management / Wake on Lan
    Management of remote computers over internet (not all the options above, though)
    Integration with the other System Centre products
    Excellent reporting of all of this

    End result is something very helpful when managing large/complex networks, but with a pretty steep learning curve.

      Wow, impressive.

      ​I am beginning to study it because I see it in many job specifications, and not only that, but if it has such capabilities, it is really interesting to master it !

        Depends on the requirements of the organisation.

        SCCM is a bit of a beast to learn hence why people specialise in it.

        Is it worthwhile learing? Thats up to the skillset that you are trying to achieve.
