Looking through the session catalogue for MMS this year, I have found that the superb MS speaker, Jason Buffington, will be giving a session on DPM 2012. The session is named "A First Look at Data Protection Manager 2012" and can be viewed here, http://www.mms-2011.com/topic/details/BB18.
It is a very early look, pre Beta, but still a session I think will be well worth attending!
Look forward to seeing you there.
