I was at the launch of Impero v3.5 today which is another option to consider (other similar tools are available )
Thanks to GrumbleDook from:

Spiceworks - Helpdesk and on the fly asset list
Impero - classroom management, plus a few of the other bits
GPO - The usual
Skeep - RDP to servers
Fog - Imaging
Nagios - Server and switch monitoring
Cacti - Network traffic monitoring/graphing
Trying to roll it all into one package is, in my view, doomed to failure as there will always be something that isn't included and it'll oversimplify complex tasks, removing flexibility.

Thanks guys. What are your thoughts on Ranger - I used it a few years ago now is it a RM CC? clone now? Skeep looks interesting :-)

Ranger - too interfering for me. I don't like any packages like CC3 or Ranger - they get in the way for me. Others swear by them though.

I'd say that approximately 97% of my swearing here is done at CC3 and Adobe combined. When we ditch CC3 next year, the air will be a lot less blue I'm sure

System Center Configuration Manager 2012 is a cracking bit of kit though a little faffy to setup - there are a good set of guides online though, and after a few weeks of playing with it I am impressed enough that it is now our likely replacement for CC3.
