ITMS 7.1 Should Support Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8
ITMS (SMP) 7.1 should support Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8 as a managed end-point.
Although ITMS 7.5 is supposed to support Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8 this product is constantly being delayed. Even when this version is released many companies will be very wary of upgrading immediately due to Symantec's history of "ship n fix". This will be the case regardless of Symantec's claims to the contrary.
To address this hole in capability I suggest Symantec release a SP or MP for 7.1 that supports Windows Server 2012 and Windows 8. Many customers would be satisfied with a version that supported Inventory, Software Management, Deployment and Patch.
This KB http://www.symantec.com/docs/DOC6193 suggests existing limited compatibility with Windows 8 but until the operating systems are listed in the official support matrix most production environments will not try it.
