SCHAUMBURG, Ill., Jan. 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- TrainSignal, the global leader in professional computer training, announced the release of their System Center 2012 Operations Manager Training.

Many companies overlook the impact of efficiency in IT operations. Operations Manager in Microsoft's System Center is a monitoring tool that functions to audit services in enterprise-scale systems. The tool integrates with Microsoft's extensive line of products, as well as other vendors' software and hardware suites.

Monitoring capabilities offered by System Center Operations Manager provide Windows administrators with insights that can aid critical decisions regarding data center workloads. Implementation of Operations Manager and the key management tools to use are covered in SCOM 2012 Training by IT systems expert, Scott Lowe. These System Center videos teach admins how to practice actionable monitoring that meets business requirements. This pertains to both user support and operational costs.

The course aims to teach complex problem-solving often faced by enterprise IT departments, and how the robust tools in Microsoft System Center 2012 work as a means to bridge technical and business problems. This course establishes a base knowledge needed to run Microsoft Operations Manager from installation and post-installation tasks, through recurring management:

  • Add-ons and Microsoft Management Packs
  • Task and Rule Management
  • Client and Network Device Monitoring
  • Audit Collection Services (ACS)

The virtual machines used in this course all run on a single server under Hyper-V.  Any system with 16 GB of RAM and sufficient disk space and that can run Hyper-V is sufficient.  For this course, the host is a Dell PowerEdge 2950 server with 32 GB of RAM and around 1 TB of disk space.

Scott Lowe also created training for System Center Configuration Manager, in addition to a line of training for various Microsoft technologies. Lowe is the Founder and Managing Consultant of THE 1610 Group and writes for TechTarget's SearchCIO-Midmarket and TechGenix's sites. He is also the author of O'Reilly's Home Networking: The Missing Manual, and a coauthor of Microsoft Press' Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Administrator's Companion and the MCTS Self-Paced Training Kit (Exam 70-653): Configuring Windows Small Business Server 2008 book.
