Service Map integration with Operations Manager in public preview

Do you love Service Map and also use System Center Operations Manager? Have you ever wished you could have Service Map automatically create and manage distributed application diagrams in Operations Manager? With the public preview of the new Service Map management pack, that reality is here.

With this new integration, you can take the dynamic maps that Service Map creates and have them automatically create and maintain your distributed application diagrams in Operations Manager. This works for both individual server maps and complex machine group maps.

As your business services change, your diagrams will change along with them—in both Service Map and Operations Manager. Now, you can set up Operations Manager dashboards that show the health of your services and trust that the underlying distributed applications represent the real-world infrastructures, even as they change.

For more information, look at the online documentation or download the management pack and try it out for yourself.
