profile_400x400Thank you for visiting my blog. My name is Eldert Kops and I work as a consultant for inovativ based in The Netherlands. My primary focus is on Microsoft Datacenter, Server and Cloud Management solutions. In the past my focus was on System Center, but since the arrival of Microsoft Operations Management Suite and other Microsoft Public Cloud security and management offerings I got interested in cloud based solutions, Log Analytics and even Business Intelligence.

For IT departments it is essential to have control over their environments. They require effective tools that help them monitor, gain insights, operate, automate, provision components and report on key performance indicators. For proper management, security and compliance they need to gather data and be able to get insights from that data. Microsoft offers solutions that help gain a unified datacenter management experience with out-of-the-box monitoring, provisioning, configuration, automation, protection and self-service capabilities.

This blog centers around the following products and subjects:

  • System Center Orchestrator (SCO)
  • System Center Operations Manager (SCOM)
  • Operations Management Suite (OMS)
  • PowerBI
  • PowerShell
  • Monitoring
  • Automation
  • Business Intelligence
  • Log Analytics
  • Security

Today it’s all about having control over your clouds, getting insights across workloads and obtaining operational intelligence to explore, analyze, and take action faster. This helps companies to stay secure, compliant and operate efficiently.
