I wanted to let everybody know that I’m moving on to another opportunity inside Microsoft and will no longer be working on the Configuration Manager (and SCUP) Team. My last day on the Configuration Manager Team is this Friday (1/13). With my transition I will no longer be blogging about Configuration Manager and SCUP. All the content that is posted here will remain. I’m not sure yet if I will be blogging in my new role, but if so I will re-brand this blog (as it is under my name) but all content will remain here: http://blogs.technet.com/b/jasonlewis/p/configmgr.aspx.
Over the years I’ve received many emails regarding SCUP, DCM and other features that I thoroughly enjoyed answering. Moving forward I encourage you to bring those discussions to our forums where everyone can learn from your questions. You can find the Software Update Management forum here: http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/configmgrsum/threads.
I started this blog back in June of 2007 to help build a SCUP community and educate customers on this great application. When SCUP first came out it was part of Systems Management Server 2003 R2 and called Custom Updates Publishing Tool (CUPT). Over the past 4 1/2 years we have rebranded and built a really great custom software update managing and authoring experience for ConfigMgr customers. We could not have done it without all the feedback we’ve received from you over the years. The SCUP community is growing everyday and is stronger than it ever has been. I would like to personally thank every reader of this blog and those that commented or emailed me. Each discussion was a great learning experience for how you use our products.
Lastly I would like to thank you for being great customers and making SCUP and the community what it is today! It was a great pleasure and experience working with each of you.
