If you’re working with System Center Operations Manager 2007 you will probably want to take advantage of the ability to automate and extend Operations Manager features.  The SDK Documentation has everything you need to do this.  You’ll find information on the Operations Manager Class Libraries and Operations Manager Interoperability.  One big change is the way we no longer require WMI classes to monitor non-Windows-based computers and other hardware devices. This is now done by defining Management Packs.

Here’s the what’s in the SDK:
