Many companies today are still struggling with update management in their environments, despite increasingly sophisticated and feature-rich tools designed to help the IT Manager keep their software up-to-date. The problem is not actually one of technology, it is one of process. The reality is that most update management processes utilised are deficient, mandate that all updates be deployed to all assets regardless of need, and do not take into account asset configuration. A best practice first espoused by Microsoft in 2004, Technical Compliance Management goes beyond update management and takes into account the roles that assets play, initial and ongoing software installation and configuration, and a departure from the one-size-fits-all approach. Come to this session to learn how Microsoft's Global Foundation Services is embracing Technical Compliance Management to secure the Cloud Infrastructure, and gain practical, useful guidance on how to implement Technical Compliance Management in your environments.
