Microsoft ConfigMgr Reaches 25 Years


Twenty-five years ago, in the summer of 1992, planning for a new product began – and that point in time has had a tremendous impact on my life and the lives of millions of IT Pros – and it has enabled us all to support 100s of millions of workers around the globe.

Check out this preview of ConfigMgr @ 25:

We are celebrating the 25th anniversary of a vision document outlining a new project codenamed ‘Hermes,’ and the coding that began a few weeks later – with two engineers and an intern using a Gateway 486 with a 500 MB hard drive.

That project became a product, and that product created an industry we now call PC management.

Between then and now, System Center Configuration Manager (ConfigMgr) has had a couple different names, but it has, nonetheless, grown to be the world’s most commonly used solution for managing enterprise PCs.  From the time that first line code was written and checked-in 25 years ago, it has grown to more than 8 million lines of code – but, as we have continually re-architected and refreshed ConfigMgr, we have retired many more lines than that.
