Microsoft® System Center and DellTM OpenManage Integration
Microsoft System Center Management Suite is a family of leading IT management solutions that helps IT departments proactively plan, deploy, manage, and optimize an IT environment. System Center solutions help IT staff automate operations, improve application delivery, and enhance service delivery.
To further extend holistic management, Microsoft and Dell have integrated Dell OpenManage hardware management functionality into System Center applications. After validating the performance of the implementation, Dell has awarded Microsoft's System Center management tools "OpenManage Certification".
Seamless integration of OpenManage functionality in System Center contributes to:
By reducing the number of task-specific consoles and dedicated IT resources required to manage your environment, IT administrators derive comprehensive and cost-effective control.
- Faster implementations with less testing and no additional infrastructure required
- More IT management functionality though fewer management consoles
- Optimized control of your IT environment – hardware, software, and IT services
