New Year, New Release!
One of our everlasting New Year’s resolutions has always been the continuous improvement of our solutions. This year is not any different, and we are proud to announce that this week we launched the newest release of Live Maps. Live Maps Unity is Savision’s flagship solution that transforms Microsoft System Center into a plug-and-play Business Service Management solution.
Among the many enhancements we’ve made within this release, we have extended the service model to show the dependencies between applications and core services with a new feature: Dependent Services.
Core IT services such as DNS, Active Directory and SharePoint provide the foundation on which business critical applications and services are built. With Live Map Unity’s dependent services feature, you can express these relationships quickly and easily. Modelling the connections between your services allows you to see at a glance whether availability and performance problems are application specific or whether they are a result of issues with your service fabric. Comprehensive service modelling allows you to drill down from problem to root cause in only a few clicks, and to prioritize your response based on business and customer impact.
Services Dashboard in Operations and Web Console
An understanding of application architecture – both physical and logical – is critical to the diagnosis of performance and availability issues. Live Maps comes with out of the box service models built using the most recent information available from Microsoft and subject-matter experts. Within this release, we have added Lync to the list of applications that Live Maps discovers with one click. Live Maps will discover the deployments of applications like Exchange, SharePoint, and Active Directory and will provide deep and insightful diagrams that make troubleshooting service issues a breeze.

A nice new feature for the users of our mobile application is the creation of a mobile device users security group within SCOM. This makes it much easier to quickly specify which Live Maps are visible to the users of the mobile application.
The new features and enhancements are available starting today to new and existing customers. If you are still not familiar with Live Maps and would like to know more, you can visit our product page for Live Maps here. Alternatively, you can also try Live Maps now in our online demo environment or request an evaluation key to test it in your own environment.
