15 July 2014 CIO, Infrastructure and Application Expert, IT Manager, Live Maps, news 2 min read
In its July 2014 edition, Redmond Magazine highlighted Savision’s Live Maps in an article entitled “Management Packs Go Deep.” The article discusses System Center Operations Manager plug-ins and management packs that were unveiled at TechEd 2014 in Houston, Texas. Savision was called out for its ability to “provide end-to-end service health monitoring from Operations Manager.”
In the words of author Jeffrey Schwartz, “Several new Operations Manager Management packs aim to monitor components beyond the core infrastructure level. Savision is targeting service management with the release of Unity, a version of its Live Maps tool.”
Microsoft principal program manager Daniel Savage was quoted as saying, “If you can really show the dependencies in an application when something goes down and how it affects the business, to me that’s the key for what IT managers and CIOs want to see out of these things.”
Microsoft MVP Alexandre Verkinderen added, “Live Maps enables you to build rich end-to-end views with these components [such as databases, web sites, and application servers], and add additional business context.” He continued, “Live Maps has multiple features built in to dynamically update component maps, so that maintenance is very simple and low cost.”
