Once again, I will be presenting with the WMUG guys at an event in London on 21/04/17.
Our focus is on Windows 10 and Azure Cloud and there are some great speakers and presentations on offer. MVP’s Robert Marshall, Gerry Hampson and Sam Erskine will be there, along with the awesome 2Pint guys, Phil Wilcock and Andreas Hammarskjöld.
I will be presenting on Power BI and the SCCM Template. I recently published a blog post on setting up the template and this was very well received. The presentation dives a bit deeper into the Power BI solution and how you can get those crucial reports and dashboard into the Cloud and onto the devices of those, in the organisation, that matter.
I’ll also be co-presenting with our event sponsors, Parallels, who will be giving an insightful presentation on how you can manage a Macintosh estate via ConfigMgr using their Mac Management for SCCM product. I’ll be give real-world feedback on the product itself.
As mentioned, the event is based in London, the full details on location and how to register is here at the WMUG web site. This is a free event.
