World of IT is changing and so are the IT organizations. The cloud era has begun and it is now being widely adopted. As a result of this, new technologies and products are evolving rapidly, and many of them powered by the cloud platform.
While it's appealing to look into and explore all the new capabilities of all these new technologies, it's easy to forget that most organizations in the real world are still managing or partially managing their datacenters on-premise. And more important for this article, many of them are managed with products from the Microsoft System Center Suite.
In this article I will talk about combining and analyzing the result sets from different technologies, such as agent based monitoring from Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM), but also some rather new technologies, such as log analytics with Microsoft Operations Management Suite (OMS).
In addition, I’ll address some of the concerns and requests we get from our customers throughout the industry such as service modeling, security considerations and wish for a holistic perspective of the whole IT Service delivery supported by their processes.
