The Biggest thing that comes to my mInd when I try to compare two versions of this wonderful Tool called SCCM ( System Center Configuration Manager ) is ” Cost Optimization ( Cost Efficient ) ” .

SCCM 2007 Vs SCCm 2012

SCCM 2007 Vs SCCm 2012

True !! As the Above Figure Shows : SCCM 2012 is without any doubts ” Cheaper , Faster and Good ” 🙂

SCCM 2012 is a more Cost Efficient Solution as compared to SCCm 2007 . Why ? Well !! this question must have hit your Mind by now !!

The Answer is here :

Multiple Forests Support with One SCCM Primary , Role Based Access Control ( In SCCM 2007 there were certain scenarios where you might have  Different Sites for Managing Server and Clients Machines ) , Not Anymore with SCCM 2012 RBAC( Role Based Access Control ) feature .

Multiple Language Support is yet another reason where you might not need Extra SCCM Sites .

In this Post we will talk about a new Feature that was not there in SCCM 2007 . It is ” SCCM Forest Discovery Method” . Let us assume that you are being asked to Implement SCCM 2007 in an environment where you have two forests , then since there is no in place method , you might need to do some extra work . However , with Active directory forest discovery method being introduced in SCCM 2012 , all you have to do is to Enable the SCCM Forest Discovery method and you are done . The System Center Configuration Manager Forest Discovery method can help you identify as many forests as you can . So , now you can have just one SCCM Server and Manage Multiple Forests ( Subject to other conditions being true) . Let us have a look at the below figure :
