System Center 2012 Operations Manager Training

It has been difficult for most companies to find good Operations Manager 2012 training, until now. Our SCOM 2012 training course is designed for admins and operators and will take you through everything from design and deployment to fine tuning alerts and custom management packs. We have been running this class now for over a year and have evolved and added to it, for instance as SP1 released. Other training vendors have been limited to using the Microsoft Private Cloud courses, which only touch briefly on SCOM and do not go into the depth necessary to make it really work for your enterprise.  Check it out here!

This courseware is also available for sale with lab images and setup support. Call us if you are a training vendor with clients who need real Operations Manager 2012 training.  Contact Us.

Advanced SCOM 2007 Training Course

I recently taught the Advanced System Center Operations Manager (50216B) course from the Microsoft Courseware Library. As those who are using it know, SCOM is a powerful cross-platform data center management system, but it can be quite overwhelming to fine tune properly.

I have taught this Microsoft official curriculum course many times. When you glance at the course outline, it seems ideal for the experienced SCOM admin. But when you get into the actual training, it is about a day and half’s worth of content—advertised and sold by Microsoft as a three-day course.  This kind of “standard curriculum” shortcoming is exactly where the value of an experienced and intuitive trainer makes all the difference. When I teach 50216B, I use the room that the curriculum provides to make specific applications to clients’ installations and spend time problem solving.

I find this class to be most successful when we are brought on-site to a company that has SCOM and needs help getting the product fine-tuned and/or under control. The attendees are often from various teams—everything from SQL admins to Exchange and SharePoint admins, etc.—and want to customize their alerts, notifications, reports and monitors so SCOM is relevant for them. This is my favorite sort of audience because the class becomes a blend of training and consulting.

When we are on-site, we can use your existing infrastructure to work through specific, relevant examples and teach to your actual problems. The aim is that you come out the other end of training not only having solved some of the problems that plague you, but also having learned how to continue making the solution work for you. We train you to work through the solutions—as opposed to a consultant who does all the work for you or a typical trainer who teaches only from the canned labs. When you work with a Source Solutions trainer, you get the best learning solution available. Other training companies can find you a teacher. We can meet your needs and equip you to be more efficient moving forward.
