The Rebranding of SCCM

It used to be that all the documentation and speeches coming from Microsoft referred to System Center Configuration Manager as "SCCM" for brevity. Something that I noticed at MMS was the constant use of the term "Config Manager" when referring to SCCM. It seems to be the newly preferred abbreviation even to the point that I heard one presenter correct himself by saying, "...they told me not to say that anymore."

Reduction of the alphabet soup that is a typical IT conversation is always good, but if they don't print it as SCCM anymore then I can't call it "Suck 'em."

That makes me sad.

  1. Not so much a rebranding as it is a de-cluttering of the System Center suite. Since Microsoft is going for broke in terms of the System Center line of products, it was only a matter of time before things became confusing. They refer to it in the shortened sense even beyond what you have mentioned. The material posted referred to it as ConfigMgr.
