Wednesday 15th September 2010 – NEBytes September 2010: It's All About Phones and Infrastructure Management

North East Bytes now steamrolls into autumn with our 10th event of the year. Why not register, come along and enjoy the show!

Managing an Enterprise Infrastructure Using SCOM 2007 R2 with Mark Robson

Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) is Microsoft’s enterprise monitoring and alerting tool. SCOM gathers server performance and status information using software agents; it then collates this information using pre-determined rules (Management packs) and produces a “health” report for the environment. SCOM can be a very complicated product to implement and needs to be handled carefully to ensure the information it is producing is accurate & relevant.

In this session Mark Robson will draw from his real world experiences implementing SCOM to show how it can be used as much more than just a server monitoring tool.

image Mark, a NEBytes local, is an IS Systems Manager for a Newcastle based housing association. In 2009 Mark was key in the managing the first UK implementation of a companywide SCOM 2007 R2 deployment that has since been used as case study by Microsoft (http://www.microsoft.com/casestudies/Case_Study_Detail.aspx?casestudyid=4000006463).
