Implementation of
Microsoft System Center Operations Manager


This document describes a model for systematic introduction of a system monitoring infrastructure based on Microsoft System Center Operations Manager 2007.

This model is based on a Plan – Build – Run - Strategy, to which the two stages Optimize – Ongoing Review have been added to also take regular operation of your new infrastracture into account.

All individual stages have been broken down into different work packages which as a whole completely cover the thematic constellation.

As the number and extent of different work packages depend on the size of your planned system monitoring infrastructure, we can only estimate time and effort to be spent. Depending on complexity and intricacy of the project, the information given may deviate from actual costs and efforts.

All information and contents of this document are based on our long-standing experience in the area of system monitoring and on having implemented numerous projects involving leading system monitoring frameworks such as Microsoft Operations Manager (OpsMgr).
