Microsoft System Center and Dell OpenManage Integration
Microsoft System Center Management Suite is a family of leading systems management solutions that helps IT departments proactively plan, deploy, manage, and optimize your IT environment. System Center solutions help automate operations, improve application delivery, and enhance service delivery.
To provide you greater simplicity and efficiencies in managing your infrastructure, Microsoft and Dell integrate Dell OpenManage hardware management functionality into System Center management applications. The implementations are then tested extensively and, when they perform flawlessly in meeting requirements, they are awarded Certification within the Dell ISV Partner Program.
Seamless integration of OpenManage functionality in System Center delivers:
By reducing the number of task-specific consoles and dedicated IT resources required to manage your environment, you achieve comprehensive and cost-effective control.
- Faster deployments, less time testing, and no additional infrastructure requirements
- More IT management functionality with fewer management consoles to manage
- Optimized control of your IT environment – hardware, software, and IT services
