Had a nice surprise in my inbox this morning - one of my coauthors for the upcoming System Center 2012 Orchestrator Unleashed book sent me an email congratulating me on being the Author of the Week on InformIT.com (it's there this morning on the homepage. When I clicked the details page, I saw the publication date of System Center 2012 Operations Manager is today! (I knew it would be back from the printer this week, but its only Monday ...)
If you were wondering why this blog was silent for a number of months, it is because I was spending just about every waking moment working on the OpsMgr 2012 Unleashed book. Length: 1536 pages - about 1380 of which are before the index. We worked hard to make all of that content as valuable as possible - there's a lot to Microsoft's monitoring software. If you purchased System Center Operations Manager 2007 Unleashed, you will find much in the way of new content, along with a "Fast Track" section in other chapters directing you to new information on that particular topic. Happy reading!
Expect to see availability shortly on Amazon as they receive their copies.
