Virtual Machine Manager 2012 Community Evaluation Program

The Virtual Machine Manager 2012 Community Evaluation Program provides IT professionals a structured approach to evaluating the pre-release version of Microsoft® System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2012. 

Members of this program are able to evaluate the Beta version of Virtual Machine Manager 2012 with guidance from the product team and by sharing of experiences and best practices among a community of peers.

Learning Themes
To support the evaluation and test implementation process, Microsoft will deliver bi-weekly Learning Themes.  Participants will be notified of themes and guided to recommended materials and documentation to aid in the evaluation process.  In addition, themes will include Virtual Chalk Talks with the product team – providing a chance to ask questions and discuss features with the community. 

Community Forum
Members will have a private forum for posting questions, providing feedback and sharing best practices.  Participants will also be encouraged to post product feature feedback in public forums.  Those that are actively involved in these forums will be recognized in the community and eligible for certain contests and prizes during the program.
