Extend the business value of System Center with our non-Microsoft Management Packs and Integration Packs
As the management and administration of today’s enterprise environments becomes increasingly complex – and financial constraints require increased efficiency – the need for application integration between monitoring and notification systems has become more important than ever. At Infront Consulting Group, our specialists have the insight and expertise to build the kind of Microsoft System Center software solutions that save organizations time and money, allow them to achieve their strategic objectives and drive game-changing bottom-line results.
The Infront Consulting Group Audit MP is a health-check Management Pack designed to provide the additional functionality that leading enterprise-sized organizations need to succeed. The Advanced Server MP allows you to track changes to your rules, monitors and overrides and automates the back-up of unsealed MPs prior to the implementation of rollback-allowing changes. The Audit MP provides the ability to schedule maintenance modes based on a single CSV file that contains critical server maintenance schedules. The Audit MP also allows you to compare systems in Active Directory with Systems that have SCOM agents, then alert your IT team to any systems that are in AD and lack a SCOM agent. This MP also discovers systems in a ‘pending reboot’ state, displays servers with disconnected RDP connections and displays greyed out SCOM agents.
The Infront Consulting Group Audit MP was built to address some of the pain points that we encounter on every SCOM engagement and provide a simple solution that doesn’t require complex MP authoring knowledge to resolve.
Are you getting too many alerts in SCOM? Are all of the alerts that you are getting actionable? The Infront Consulting Group Triage MP is designed with two goals in mind. The first is to reduce alert noise. The second is to ensure only actionable alerts are sent out via notifications or passed into your ticketing or incident management system. The Infront Consulting Group Triage MP is designed to allow you to quickly and easily, with no knowledge of SCOM, correlate critical, warning and information alerts in SCOM with your organization’s severity levels. We understand that a critical alert in SCOM doesn’t always translate into a Severity 1 issue in your environment. The Infront Consulting Group Triage MP allows you to map the alerts in SCOM MPs to your organization’s severity levels and populates the Alert owner field and Custom Alert Fields with additional information to make the alert easier to filter on and communicate to the right audience.
