The person with the most knowledge and experience with SCCM leaves Microsoft today. Yes, I am talking about Wally Mead. In the past I’ve met him on some occasions and he made a huge impression on me.
Rod Trent has written an excellent article about his departure and I must say I agree for a full 100% with Rod’s thoughts and conclusions.
For Microsoft this is a big loss. I know, it’s all about the cloud now and everything else comes second. However, the markets aren’t changing that fast so on-premise means still a big deal to many companies. I really hope Microsoft realizes that as well and won’t neglect the customers still running on-premise software.
The big winner here is Cireson since Wally Mead will join their forces. Therefore I congratulate Cireson with their newest team member. Awesome!
