About the Author

My name is Adam Gross. I’m a husband, father of 3 small kids and Christ follower. I have a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Information Systems from Louisiana Tech University and have been working in various areas of desktop client management since 1998. I have been a Desktop Architecture Analyst with my current company for the past 15 years. Currently, I am working on the technical design of our Windows 10 build using SCCM and related tools. I also share management duties for our SCCM infrastructure which supports ~9000 clients.

I’m also a consultant for System Center Dudes where I specialize in Operating System Deployment and Power BI Reporting. Please check them out and see if we can help your business.

What is this blog all about?

A few years ago, I discovered that Twitter had some great industry information, but I didn’t really do a ton to engage with it until late 2016 when I began working on SCCM and Windows 10 Modern Management strategies. Through the process I found a lot of great people who create blog posts as a way to give back to the community. I want to do the same. Several times I couldn’t find the information I needed to solve a problem but eventually found a solution either on my own, working with Microsoft Premier Support or collaboration with my teammates. I want to share what I have encountered so that other people can benefit from my efforts. I’m no expert, but I feel that I have something to give back.
