A little bit of everything without actually being much of anything


Posted by BPuhl on February 7, 2008

So my latest “hobby” at work, has been working with the System Center Mobile Device Management (SCMDM, or ScumDum as we sometimes call it).  It’s actually fairly cool, the ability to join Windows Mobile 6 phones to a domain, provide some VPN-like connectivity to get to internal line of business applications, and apply policy (via GPO’s in AD) to mobile devices.

I’ll post more on our internal deployment as it progresses, but just saw that Technet Edge has an interview with a program manager from the product team, you can find it here.

    So how have you acronym-ized System Center Configuration Manager internally? Left to my own devices I’ve been alternating between just “SCUM”, and “SCICUM” with a short ‘i’ sound.

    Actually, internally we don’t even use ScumDum, instead we use the development codename Yona. Of course, that keeps us singing, Yona…Yo, yo, yo, yona…

    S O D A so-o-da
    I saw the little runt sitting there on a log
    I asked him his name and in a raspy voice he said YODA
    Yo yo yo yoyo-da”

    Damn you. 😉
