Many organizations face common challenges of fully leveraging their Enterprise Monitoring tool to give a holistic and cross-sectional view of the health and performance of core infrastructure and distributed applications. This presentation provides its audience a greater understanding of how to operationalize Microsoft’s System Center Operations Manager (SCOM 2007 or 2012) based on the key learnings that best-in-breed Microsoft Partner CMS Consulting Inc has discovered by building and managing SCOM environments over the years for multiple Enterprises and covers best-practices on using SCOM for the monitoring of:

  1. Network: How SCOM 2012 monitors the network layer for the health status of all key components (e.g. routers, switches, other devices).
  2. Servers: How SCOM 2012 can monitor across server platforms by being able to monitor not only your Windows installations, but also your UNIX and Linux deployments – covering almost 100% of the average installed base of servers.
  3. Applications: How SCOM 2012 provides deep application insight that wasn’t possible before – across programming languages and distributed applications.

This is a highly informative session and would appeal to anyone who is currently using System Center, and/or considering deploying an enterprise wide health and performance monitoring solution.
