Savision has been a favorite System Center partner of mine for a few years now.  Their LiveMaps for Operations Manager are a really useful way to visualize data because it puts the information in a visual business, location, or process context that people can more quickly understand.  I was really excited when Dennis Rietvink from Savision contacted me a few months ago and wanted to work on exposing Live Maps functionality in Service Manager.  We worked through a couple of different options, but in the end all it required was using a custom console task handler to launch their web console to the right LiveMap depending on the select object or objects related to the selected object.  This solution is a great example of why having a common platform underlying Operations Manager and Service Manager is so powerful.

This solution is available now as part of the Savision LiveMaps v5 release.  There are a bunch of other features for Operations Manager in that release as well.  More info at http://www.savision.com

This is really exciting!  Thanks Dennis!
