Quick Information

What are the top 10 issues that Database and System Administrators face in the workplace?

Regardless of whether it is a comment on SystemCenterCentral, TechNet, or a System Center User Group meeting where a group member complains to an MVP, the same concerns come from System Administrators time and time again. Interesting to note is that whether the database administrator is working with Microsoft’s System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2, 2012 SP1, 2012 R2 or any other platforms – the concerns are the same. We are not talking about deployment issues…we are talking about deeper concerns regarding job performance.

We have compiled a top 10 list of these concerns below. These concerns are being able to:

  1. Perform comprehensive infrastructure monitoring
  2. Perform in-depth application performance monitoring
  3. Run reports that give deep insight and diagnostics into their databases
  4. Run queries to receive alerts based on unique conditions
  5. Perform health checks on the availability of their systems
  6. Identify problems with pinpoint accuracy and the ability to troubleshoot
  7. Generate comprehensive reports (that make you look smart)
  8. Automating regular functions so that redundancy is reduced
  9. Delivering on SLA’s and providing optimal IT service management
  10. Save time and money

With Microsoft System Center Operations Manager MPs from NiCE, Application and System Management is now simpler, less stressful and much more efficient and best of all… our MPs address ALL the concerns listed above. We have developed our SCOM MPs with the user in mind.

With Application Management, it is important to have a solution that generates instant alerts, stream lines data received and allows you to manage your applications in the most time and cost-effective manner. Our enterprise ready solutions will always be up-to-date making sure that whatever is new with System Center and SCOM will be mirrored with our MPs that have great new features and functionalities.
