I was doing some development work in OMS this morning and noticed that there is a new SCOM Assessment solution in the gallery marked as “coming soon”. Nice! There were already a ton of reasons for companies using SCOM to roll out OMS, and this is certainly another one. I can’t count the number of SCOM environments that I’ve worked with that simply didn’t have the expertise and/or time to track down every issue with configuration, performance, administration, etc. This solution appears to be a great step towards resolving those issues.
From the solution description:
“The recommendations are based on the knowledge and experiences gained by Microsoft engineers across thousands of customer engagements.”
As a former Microsoft SCOM PFE and consultant who has assisted with countless health checks, I have high hopes for this solution!
