Before we get into it, let’s get one thing straight, by SCOMaaS, I am in no way referring to Azure Monitor here. I truly mean that the SCOM Management Groups themselves would be hosted and managed by Microsoft SaaS style! This is the biggest announcement from the SCOM Product Team at SCOMathon 2020, for this single reason – it sets the direction on the future of SCOM as a product and clearly positions it along side Azure Monitor.

There where a raft of announcements at SCOMathon 2020 from Aakash Basavaraj from the SCOM Product Team and one of the most exciting things was a sneak peek at what to expect after SCOM 2019 UR2 is out of the door: PowerBI Dashboards – being developed in partnership with Silect, experts in this area, this will be launched in SCOM 2019 UR2. No info was given on what to expect here, but as Silect’s PowerBI dashboards are already public, we expect this to look similar.

Aakash Basavaraj, Program Manager in the SCOM Team at Microsoft, showcased their latest plans at SCOMathon 2020. So, what can we expect to see on SCOM’s roadmap in 2020? There will be some standard bug fixes for SCOM 2016 to keep this version ticking over, but for all of you planning to upgrade, the great news is the next rollup of SCOM 2019 is where the SCOM Product Team are focussing their efforts.

From Cookdown Alert Sync 1.5 onwards, the SCOM connector for ServiceNow allows you to hold alerts for a period of time before deciding whether to create an Incident in ServiceNow for them or not. This is great for preventing alerts from port flaps or CPU utilization spikes from being raised as Incidents. We call this functionality "Wait Rules" and this video explains how they work
