Enhancing SCOM 2012 with proactive IT process automation

With System Center Operations Manager 2012 (SCOM 2012) and eyeShare you can now monitor IT systems, network and services and react to operational problems or proactively manage IT tasks better and faster than ever before.

Operations Manager will help you identify and resolve problems by telling you which monitored objects are not healthy. It will send alerts when problems are detected, and provide information to help you identify the cause of a problem and possible solutions.

Watch the SCOM 2012 Integration on YouTube:

However, if you got this far, why not take one step further and automate the resolution of problems too? Why not remediate IT incidents automatically, and proactively schedule IT maintenance tasks?

eyeShare lets you do all this, with a smooth SCOM 2012 integration. For example, you can schedule repetitive IT tasks such as disk space cleanup and file operations, or you can automatically remediate problems such as locked Active Directory accounts.

Using eyeShare’s bi-directional communication you can control the execution of automated processes remotely from your mobile device. For example, instruct a process whether to restart a service or not. Bi-directional communication also enables a closed-loop incident remediation between eyeShare and SCOM 2012, by passing alerts and status notifications between the two programs.

Take a look at the IT process automation integration to learn more about the pre-packaged tasks that you can automate out of the box, without any effort or scripting.

Ayehu Introduces IT Process Automation Pinpoint Solutions

[wpsr_socialbts]

Palo Alto, CA – April 11, 2012 /Targetwire/ Ayehu, provider of IT process automation solutions, today launched its IT process automation pinpoint solutions – prepackaged workflows for the rapid automation of planned, repetitive IT tasks. The solutions extend Microsoft’s System Center Operations Manager (SCOM 2012) capabilities and will be demonstrated at the Microsoft Management Summit.

Ayehu’s pinpoint solutions automate a range of repetitive daily IT tasks within data centers, cloud and virtualized environments – from freeing up server disk space, through unlocking active directory accounts, performing file operations, restarting services and many more. Delivered as pre-packaged workflows, the solutions are designed for automating specific task operations across systems and can be easily tailored without any coding. IT tasks can be scheduled or triggered automatically upon system events. Additionally, execution can be controlled from mobile devices, so that automated workflows pause and branch based on remote SMS instructions.

“As implied by their name, pinpoint solutions are aimed at simplicity, and focused on automating the most common IT tasks, without requiring any scripting or implementation efforts” said Yaron Levy, Vice President of Products at Ayehu. “There is a large pool of mundane IT tasks that are shared by many professionals, regardless of industry. We realized we could automate and productize these tasks, and still offer enough options to accommodate different environments and needs”.

The new IT process automation pinpoint solutions which are a part of Ayehu eyeShare™ version 4.1, will be demonstrated at the Microsoft Management Summit 2012, taking place on April 16, 2012 at the Venetian Hotel in Les Vegas, NV.
