Our own Senior Infrastructure Engineer Daniel Suenkel recently hosted a Breakfast and Learn to share his knowledge and passion for Azure OMS with his AIS colleagues. Continuing with his theme, he explained why Azure OMS truly is the “One Tool to Rule Them All!”

In addition to the material that he provided in his previous blog (Azure OMS: One Tool To Rule Them All), he provided a deeper dive into what Azure OMS is and exactlywhat is offered in each service.

Government agencies across the spectrum are sitting on invaluable datasets that are locked up, usually because of lack of resources, tools and compliance regimes.

Fortunately, cloud-based analytics capabilities are allowing these datasets to be turned into knowledge. Whether it’s data about the agency mission, citizen services or simply data from running large data centers, analytics can help these agencies visualize, analyze and optimize.

With cloud adoption continuing to grow and many enterprises making use of multi-cloud infrastructures, today’s IT organizations need to quickly adapt their IT infrastructure to manage and monitor both public cloud infrastructure and existing on-premises resources. Traditionally, this leads to the implementation of multiple tools in separate environments, managed by separate teams for a wide range of functionalities, such as:

  • Server monitoring
  • Network monitoring
  • Configuration management
  • Log analytics
  • Backup
  • Recovery
  • Network Threat Detection

It can quickly become a challenge to gain a holistic view of your enterprise health; to troubleshoot fast and remediate quickly in a unified manner.  But now some good news: These capabilities (and more!) have all been integrated as part of the Azure Operations Management Suite (OMS).

What’s the advantage of Azure Operations Management Suite? Aside from the above mentioned items, it was designed in the cloud and all components are entirely hosted in Azure. So not only does it excel at native cloud capabilities such as PaaS, it also provides full functionality for on-premises resources, offering a single pane of glass for managing and monitoring diverse infrastructures and resources. There is no setup and configuration is minimal, which gives you the ability to manage and monitor your entire enterprise in a matter of minutes rather than hours.
