At TechEd 2011, Microsoft announced that the System Center Operations Manager 2012 Community Evaluation Program (CEP) is now taking applications.
"Starting around the time of public-beta, the OM12 CEP will offer private and focused topic discussions, whereby the entire enrolled community will all look at one key feature/enhancement at a time. This'll give you, as enrolled participants, not only in-depth insight to the new OM12 features, but also access to the community of SMEs who can help you get the most out of OpsMgr 2012 (and 2007 R2 in some cases).
We're taking enrollment apps now, and will kick off the community reach-outs as we get a little closer to the public beta release.
We'll start off looking at some of the features that you've heard a lot about so far, such as Network Monitoring or Application Monitoring. Then, we'll dig into some of the new topology changes, as well as upgrade scenarios, and then just keep looking at different facets of OpsMgr 2012 moving forward," stated Microsoft.
