I've downloaded and installed SCSM and SCORCH technical preview 2 and can not see any new features. When clicking whats new on the SCSM installation it opens a webpage with information on what is new in SCSM 2012 R2. Where can I find updated information on new features?
There are no new features yet. In the next gen Microsoft will continue to support third party developers instead to make any development. So better prepare some space in the budget for more third party additions :)
Id be surprised to see anything of interest added to next gen SCSM to make up for the lost traction in the last three years.
Just the day after i compained about lack of upcoming features the engineering team started talking about new features coming for SCSM.
It looks like there will be a new HTML5 based webportal in the next generation and some smaller added functions as well. More information to come in the next two months.
Unfortunately, the talked about portal updates sound like nothing in the way of extending functionality. Sounds like it will be the identical portal just in HTML5.
Well at least you will be able to read Knowledge Articles on the portal and not just download files...
I think if you are one of the many who has invested in a third party portal from the likes of Syliance, Gridpro or Ciceron you are better off with the one you have bought.
