As a first step in building an end-to-end solution, Microsoft IT used System Center Operations Manager 2007 to consolidate two of its largest management groups into one group, the Enterprise Monitoring Team (EMT). Michael Murphy talks
with Tom McCleery, the Group Manager of the EMT about how Microsoft System Center Operations Manager, the next generation of Microsoft Operations Management and successor to MOM 2005, significantly changes the way that EMT monitors its operations. They discuss
how new templates and improved management pack design enables group managers to adjust their monitoring definitions and configurations without having to depend on EMT specialists.
