There has been a lot of buzz around Systems Center 2012 in recent weeks. Microsoft has made a lot of improvements to Operations Manager, in particular new capabilities for dashboarding, some network monitoring and application monitoring for J2E and .NET applications. These improvements are great for large enterprises that have already invested their time and resources to getting SCOM deployed.

SolarWinds offers an easy-to-use, easy-to-implement product for monitoring your physical & virtual servers & applications, which is ideal for companies of all sizes who need visibility into their infrastructure & application environment. Attend this webcast to learn from a former SCOM admin how easy it is to monitor your server & application environment with SolarWinds.

This webcast will cover how to deploy existing agentless templates, add community templates to your environment and how to augment out of the box templates to add additional performance metrics. As well as how to customize dashboard views, leveraging dynamic service groups, and create reports with no SQL experience necessary!
