There have been many inquiries into if the band would be getting back together for a second version of the very popular “Inside the Microsoft Operations Management Suite“. Version 2 is 16 chapters of the latest and greatest of Microsoft OMS…and it’s coming soon.
- When? I am happy to report we are well into the authoring process and looking to release version 2 around the end of April 2017.
- Cost? As with the first release, we will deliver a book well worth paying for…except it will again be free!
While we are only a little over a month from completion, we wanted to take a moment to give you a sneak peak at a couple of the chapters of what is to come.
The “Inside OMS” Team
I am also happy to introduce that the entire author team are all back for v2:
- Tao Yang, MVP
- Stanislav Zhelyazkov, MVP
- Anders Bengtsson, Principal PFE
- Pete Zerger, CISSP, MVP
OMS has grown considerably since our first release, and to ensure we meet our quality bar as quickly as possible, we are joined by four technical reviewers and an editor! Joining us in the tech reviewer role are some very talented folks, including:
- Damian Flynn, MVP
- Kevin Greene, MVP
- Lee Berg, MVP
- Steve Buchannan, MVP
