Our coverage of Microsoft System Center in the August issue of TechNet Magazine continues with another component of the System Center suite: System Center Operations Manager 2007.
System Center Operations Manager represents a paradigm shift in strategy, moving from computer-focused monitoring to a true service-oriented monitoring platform. In this issue, Pete Zerger explains how Operations Manager improves upon its predecessor, Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) 2005.
As you'll see, there are exciting new features, new management interfaces, and lots of additional resources for learning more about this latest addition to System Center.
Major changes in the underlying architecture of Operations Manager mean changes in deployment strategy. If you are currently running either MOM 2000 or MOM 2005, Andy Dominey will walk you through the best migration strategies for moving from MOM to Operations Manager. If you are not already running MOM, Andy explains how to install Operations Manager and get started.
There's more information about MOM and Operations Manager in our archives, and don't forget to check out our coverage of System Center Configuration Manager in this issue, too.
