What's new in Software Updates?

MNSCUG Vice President Julia Kambiri, Senior Systems Engineer at SPS Commerce, will bring you a session on recent changes to windows servicing with Configuration Manager including, Windows Updates for Business, Express Updates, Windows and Office 365 Servicing, Delivery Optimization and the long awaited 2018 update of System Center Update Publisher (SCUP).

This session aims to translate the processes and terms that we have used in traditional Patch Management into the new language of Modern Management. Give a general introduction to some of the new software update tools that have been introduced in the past year, explain which are compatible with on Prem, Hybrid or Cloud management solution(s). Julia will also share how she uses these tools in concert with more standard update practices, along with some personally experienced pitfalls to avoid.

Kyle Weeks
University Of Minnesota
Sr. System Administrator / Cloud Architect


Azure Automation: What it is, and what it isn't. An overview of components, and how to make the most of them in your environment(s).


Travis Sobeck
University of MN
Automation Engineer 

We often have to work in mixed environments and interact with systems we don’t control nor had a choice in choosing.  And that often means there is no PowerShell module to interact with those systems. Thankfully many systems have a REST API, but more often than not there are no examples in PowerShell.  This session will focus on building PowerShell to automate against these systems.


Jeff Bolduan
University of Minnesota
Computer Management Administrator 

Configuration items and baselines in SCCM, discussing signing code, and using PowerShell to detect, report and remediate in your environment.


A special thanks to MMS for their Sponsorship!
