Ulv has extensive experience with System Center Configuration Manager lightly starting with 2007 and then moving on to SCCM 2012 R2 and was responsible for maintaining deployments for a company with offices around Europe.

Managing many servers are not uncommon to Ulv as he also had responsbility for a Citrix-platform, leading to the need for automation and that’s where scripting comes into play. What Ulv can automate via PowerShell, Ulv automates. Whether it is bootscripts, or finding repetitive tasks to automate.
