Why This Matters

  • While almost all companies are working on a cloud transition, most still maintain on-premises data centers and need to operate with hybrid management. System Center provides tools to handle these on-premises systems.
  • With support for Azure Arc, Microsoft Teams, and Azure Stack HCI, System Center 2022 includes modernizations aimed at companies that have significant investments in the System Center suite while still creating deeper connections into Azure.
