To give you a few hints of collateral in progress or being considered:
- How to interpret and utilize the AMTSCAN data
- Considerations for environments with drive encryption and power-on passwords
- Green IT and Intel vPro
- Intel vPro and Symantec Workflow.... or related ideas on "service oriented architecture" enablements
- Automating via a provisionserver appliance
- Using WS-MAN and vbscript to provision a client
- New features and capabilities with Altiris version 7
- More "real world" deployment model experiences (building off the following - http://www.symantec.com/community/book/4821/deployment-scenarios-intel-vpro-altiris-environment http://www.symantec.com/community/book/4821/deployment-scenarios-intel-vpro-altiris-environment)
Do any of those topics tickle the imagination or stir thoughts on what is needed? Although I cannot guarantee when these articles will be posted - definitely like to hear from the community on what would be of greatest interest.
