Welcome to SCOMathon 2023 – the ultimate learning opportunity for all things SCOM. Get the latest updates from Microsoft, learn best practices from the experts, and discover tips and tricks from the SCOM community, to maximize the power of SCOM.

SCOMathon is a virtual SCOM community conference, organized by SquaredUp, Cookdown, and Silect to enhance networking, knowledge, and sharing of best practices across the global SCOM community.

We’ll also be donating $2 per attendee/session to Girls Who Code an international non-profit organization working to close the gender gap in technology by teaching girls computer science.

What is it?

This year, SCOMathon will span multiple time zones – from New Zealand to the West Coast of the United States and everywhere in between.

Microsoft MVPs, SCOM experts, and SCOM customers will come together to discuss all things SCOM, including the latest updates, best practice tips, specific use case scenarios, and much more.

The virtual conference will feature speaker sessions consisting of topic-based presentations, how-to guides, and panel discussions. So, come prepared to learn!
