This week we released a Vista gadget that allows the IT admins to monitor specific alerts coming into the Ops Manager console.

A Vista Gadget that enables you to view the active alerts and health states for a specified set of objects from a computer running Windows Vista.
Feature Bullet Summary:

1. Allows selection of object types.
2. Displays alert counts for each severity level.
3. Color-coded alert levels.
4. Color-coded summary of health states

I am pretty sure that we'll have more IT admins oriented gadgets developed over time, either by Microsoft or the community.

You can download the gadget there:
