NiCE BlackBerry Enterprise MP for SCOM covering BES 5, BES 10 & BES 12
When using BlackBerry devices is crucial for your company’s messaging service, it is necessary to provide both high availability concepts and professional monitoring.
The BlackBerry ecosystem consists of a large number of interconnected components. These include messaging servers like Microsoft Exchange or Domino database and application servers. Even in smaller environments you want to make sure all components and interconnections are in a healthy state in order to ensure service levels.
The NiCE BlackBerry Enterprise Management Pack continuously monitors your BES 12, BES 10, and BES 5 BlackBerry Enterprise Systems, identifying server problems before they affect applications and end users, through the use of predefined event conditions and threshold monitors.
Some key benefits of the NiCE BlackBerry Enterprise MP include:
- Identify server problems before they cause service disruption
- Notifies youwhen messages are not being delivered
- Alerts operations team about potential network issues or unexpected outages
Monitoring your BES environment has never been easier
So how does our BlackBerry Enterprise MP work?
Basically, the NiCE BlackBerry Enterprise MP gives you one integration point between Microsoft System Center Operations Manager and your BES 12, BES 10, and BES 5 environments. The BlackBerry Enterprise MP has an easy to deploy architecture that does not require any additional servers, proxies or appliances to be installed. With intelligent System Center Agent Assembly using the System Center SDK, the BlackBerry Enterprise MP can monitor all your BES components such as Collaboration Service, Dispatcher, MDSCS, Router and Enterprise Management Webservice.
BlackBerry Enterprise Systems connect to IBM Domino applications or Microsoft Exchange servers. Central to the BlackBerry solution is the BlackBerry Enterprise Service (BES) configuration database. All data and software reside on physical or virtual servers, or both, using physical and virtual storage, and are interacting via multiple network paths. Delayed message delivery, due to performance problems, could source from any point within that given messaging ecosystem. The same is true with faults. They may not necessarily have originated in the BlackBerry Enterprise software itself – they could have originated anywhere.
Hence, the key part of managing any environment is the ability to track and trend usage and identify anomalies within one pane of glass. The BlackBerry Enterprise MP for Microsoft System Center Operations Manager gives you one central collection point for all your messaging related resources, such as the BlackBerry servers and devices, email servers, anti-virus plug ins, and instant-messaging servers.
Our MP was designed to increase the productivity of the SCOM administrator and operator, providing the ability to quickly identify problems and take corrective action to avoid costly downtime.

A distributed agent is used, utilizing software components of the BlackBerry system. The innovative architecture of the NiCE BlackBerry Enterprise MP allows administrators to centrally configure exception-based monitoring in distributed BlackBerry environments.
