Here is a list of some great post about GTM you may be missed:

Digital marketing made (much) easier: Introducing Google Tag Manager.
Tags are tiny bits of website code that can help provide useful insights, but they can also cause challenges. Too many tags can make sites slow and clunky; incorrectly applied tags can distort your measurement; and it can be time-consuming for the IT department or webmaster team to add new tags—leading to lost time, lost data, and lost conversions.
- Google Tag Manager: New Google Product.
Basically, according to Phillip Klien, a tag management system is a solution that controls the deployment of externally hosted JavaScript “page tags”, very similar to what a Content Management System does for content. It helps optimizing website performance and lets webmasters focus on other important tasks. 
- Google Tag Management System Links Channels.
Google introduced a tag container and management platform Monday to support companies using multiple tracking tags.
- Google's Tag Manager To Simplify Tagging For Marketers.
Google’s latest feature will allow marketers to focus less on the technical aspect of a marketing campaign by consolidating website tags with a snippet of code, allowing management from a single web interface. 
Google Wants To Make Your Site a Little Bit Faster With Its New Tag Manager For Analytics And Marketing Tags.
The challenge that Google is trying to fix is this: there are a lot of analytics, marketing and advertising services that websites can use today to monitor how their content is used, and to better monetize that content. But with each service comes a bit of code that needs to be incorporated into the site. Each piece of code means speaking with different third-party services, and that can slow a site down to no end. (Just look at the bottom of your screen on a slow-loading site and you can often see the passage of these different services.)
Google expands analytics toolset with Tag Manager.
Some of the features range from simple tasks to preview mode and tag templates to more in-depth functions such as debugging console and asynchronous tag loading designed to prevent any slow down on the user-visible part of the site.

Personally I already added this to my tool-set to help my marketing and coding efforts. Are you planning to use GTM anytime soon? If, yes, how will you plan to implemented?

To you coding success,
