SCCM is not the Official Acronym for Configuration Manager 2007

“SCCM” is not the official acronym for Systems Center Configuration Manager 2007. "ConfigMgr" is. “SCCM” is not owned as a trademark by Microsoft and therefore we really cannot use it. But I have noticed that many people have picked up on it and continue to use it. Even me, for instance: my main blog site is named SCCMNAP.Com.


I added the acronyms for each of the Microsoft System Center Products I found .


  • Microsoft Operations Manager—MOM
  • Microsoft System Center Capacity Planner—SCCP
  • Microsoft System Center Configuration Manager—ConfigMgr
  • Microsoft System Center Data Protection Manager—SCDPM
  • Microsoft System Center Essentials—SCE
  • Microsoft System Center Operations Manager—OpsMgr
  • Microsoft System Center Reporting Manager—SCRM
  • Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager—SCVMM
  • Microsoft Systems Management Server—SMS

      ConfigMgr is ConfigMgr. Nothing has changed in this respect with 2012.

      No, I am not anti-Configuration Manager, quite the opposite in fact. I am against the use of the acronym
