NetIQ Corporation has released the NetIQ Aegis Adapter for Microsoft System Center Operations Manager to further integrate, extend, and apply greater automation to this popular management tool. The extension of NetIQ’s IT process automation technology helps IT reduce operational expense and event recovery times associated with Operations Manager.

With this latest NetIQ Aegis adapter, IT organizations using Operations Manager can integrate data from non-Microsoft tools and configuration management databases (CMDBs) to extend its event management capabilities, resulting in cross-platform event correlation, problem isolation, hierarchical escalation, approval management, and auto resolution.

The automation capabilities of NetIQ Aegis intelligently orchestrate and execute both basic and advanced features of Operations Manager along with other IT management tools to reduce manual workloads, eliminate human error, and increase administrator productivity.

Leveraging the latest features of NetIQ Aegis 2.1, this adapter enables IT organizations to:

  • Raise the priority of events based on end-user impact in Operations Manager or other tools, steering focus to high-impact events and reducing downtime.
  • Synchronize Operations Manager alert status, configurations, or maintenance mode with other tools such as ticketing systems or a CMDB, to reduce integration costs and increase operational productivity.
  • Automate Operations Manager administration, such as agent integrity checks or assigning the best management server to allocate an agent based on location and load, reducing the total cost of ownership for Operations Manager.
  • Drive alert resolution through progressive escalations, state changes and authorizations, reducing unplanned downtime due to missed alerts.

List pricing for NetIQ Aegis starts at $25,000 per base server with managed objects and adapters licensed separately. The NetIQ Aegis Adapter for Microsoft System Center Operations Manager is available now. For more information, visit www.netiq.com or call NetIQ at (888) 323-6768.
