Where is Microsoft IT ConfigMgr team in MMS 2011?

Last 10 days to go and I am eager to meet the community of experts at MMS 2011. This would be my 3rd time at MMS and 2nd time as a speaker for below session which I am very passionate to talk about as we have great experience in deploying this solution at Microsoft IT and can’t wait to share our story.

Session Details: BI04 Integrating Management & Security at Microsoft: Forefront Endpoint Protection 2010 deployment case study at Microsoft

Date & Time: 24th March, Thursday 4:00 PM - 5:15 PM, South Seas C

Speaker(s): Shitanshu Verma & Partha Chandran

Session Abstract: Join this session to learn how Microsoft IT converged security management & desktop management using single infrastructure on 280,000 desktops. With just a single server purchase, see how Microsoft was able to integrate the existing System Center Configuration Manager 2007 environment with Forefront Endpoint Protection (FEP) 2010. You will walk away with the knowledge of Microsoft IT’s FEP deployment architecture, client roll out strategy and best practices in integration. See just how easy it is to deploy FEP in your own organization.
