System Center Universe is all about bringing the community together with the best presenters to provide a world-wide community event focused on System Center. The natural next step of this concept was to look to the community to find the next great speaker who should be on the SCU stage. This idea has launched today and is called SCU Jedi!

I am extremely excited about this initiative and I look forward to introducing our new SCU Jedi at System Center Universe 2014!


Details on the SCU Jedi are available at and are also listed below.
