I am looking for a powerpoint or similar breakdown of an SCCM 2007 deployment. We are wanting to implement SCCM 2007 at our company, but are needing to get a better understanding of all that entailed in the work. The audience for the info is a technically literate group of IT folks. Do you know of such a doc in the public domain? Any help is greatly appreciated!
TIA,
JohnD

John D,

That is really a loaded question.  I was just going to blast you a list of links but I did not think that was fair.  So, SCCM is a beast but once learned and implemented properly it can provide you a tremendous amount of leverage in managing your IT environment from servers to workstation to image deployment.

See Overview:

http://www.authorstream.com/Presentation/Reinardo-50197-SCCM-2007-Overview-Agenda-Key-Investments-Administrative-Console-Admin-UI-overv-Education-ppt-powerpoint/

Once you see the overview above, you might want to start a list of what you and/or your team might want to get out of the SCCM product to most benefit your IT org or business before proceeding to far. If you have a small to medium business or don't want all the bells, you might want to consider System Center Essentials. It uses parts of SCCM and SCOM to create a compact overall solution. For more info

If you do decide you want to pursue SCCM, I would approach it in this way:

Go to the main Microsoft site and familiarize yourself more with what it can do and what it will require:
http://www.microsoft.com/systemcenter/essentials/en/us/default.aspx

Next, view a demo to see whats under the hood.
Read a white paper or two to get some ROI justification or other for business justification purposes.
Do a virtual lab to get hands on with the product.
Download the product and do a trial use on a test server.

Lastly, Microsoft has changed the way it manages it IT optimization tools which is known now as the System Center product suite.  You might look into this as well to see what other products will work with SCCM so that you may roadmap how you want to tackle your IT challenges with Microsoft solutions now and in the future.

Hope this helps and best of luck in your product review of SCCM.
