Sample Project – NiCE Custom Management Pack development
NiCE developed an Axway MailGate Applicance Management Pack for the Healthcare Industry (USA). The company was looking for a way to monitor their email firewall appliances using SCOM 2012 R2.
Below is an elaboration of the development process:
- Requirement/Specification In order to have a deeper understanding of what the client’s expectations were, NiCE conducted a joint workshop with the client to hash out all the requirements of the assignment. A turn-key Custom Management Pack to monitor the client’s Axway MailGate Applicances was determined to be the optimal solution as it would verify thresholds, monitor values, etc.
- Execution/Implementation NiCE had further engagement with the vendor of the appliance – Axway and a solution proposal was jointly presented to the client. Thanks to extensive experience in SNMP monitoring, and the use of pre-existing building blocks, NiCE could quickly implement and deliver a full scale Management Pack based on the specified requirements.
- The Custom Management Pack was ready and deployed in the client’s test environment in 4 days
- After successful acceptance tests and quality assurance with remote help from a US based NiCE engineer, the client was able to move the MP to production without further assistance from NiCE.
- Total effort 6 Engineering days
