Innovation Week Part 1 - Operations Manager on UNIX 9.0

Over the past few weeks, I have been involved in many conversations with both customers and colleagues about innovation. So, I wanted to highlight several new products that demonstrate how managing IT operations continues to evolve (contrary to some opinions).

First, I’ll start with the foundation - a consolidated event console that is the main tool for the operations bridge staff. HP released OMU 9.0 last month. As with all our event management consoles, this does not force our customers to rip and replace. OMU gives companies the ability to reduce the cost of managing their increasingly complex IT environments by consolidating events into a central console.

Some of the enhancements include:

  • A new Web-based Administration UI that allows multiple administrators to perform tasks in parallel, boosting productivity.

  • Enhanced agentless monitoring by incorporating SiteScope events into the Operations Manager console and service map, giving organizations alternate ways to broaden infrastructure coverage and reduce the cost of monitoring.

  • More flexibility in managing network events using NNMi.

OMU 9.0 admin GUI

Next week, I will post a podcast with 10 reasons to upgrade to OMU 9.0.

For Operations Center, Peter Spielvogel.

Consolidated Event Management Podcast

My colleague and consolidated event management guru Jon Haworth has recorded a podcast with Dennis Drogseth of EMA about the benefits of consolidated IT event management. During this 15 minute podcast, Dennis and Jon discuss:

  • Benefits of an integrated approach to IT Operations

  • Key groups, titles, organizations, roles, initiatives, etc. needed to drive an integrated approach to managing Operations

  • The key underlying technologies

  • Where event consolidation fits

Listen to the Consolidated Event Management podcast (registration required)

At Software Universe, many of my conversations with customers focused on how then can use Operations Manager to consolidate events from across their organization.
