Free License Exchange

Many customers have experienced years of success with Operations Manager, but the surging complexity of IT operations inspired us to create Operations Bridge, our next-generation, analytics-driven operations solution. We recommend that all OM customers evolve to Operations Bridge (Premium Edition) with a free license exchange.

Why evolve?

Operations Bridge is a holistic product suite designed to help shift IT from a cost function to a strategic business partner. With OBM incorporated directly into Operations Bridge, it delivers all the capabilities of Operations Manager and much more:

  • True single pane of glass with expansive technology coverage
  • Business Value Dashboard
  • Adaptive event management and event reduction
  • Automated discovery and monitoring
  • Cross-domain reporting

How to evolve?

To get started today, refer to the following sections for more information and technical guidance. These topics will assist you with planning and executing the transition from Operations Manager to Operations Bridge:

  • Transfer functions from OM to OBM: provides an overview of the evolution process and gives step-by-step instructions on how to transition from OM to Operations Bridge. You will learn how to carry out technical evolution in phases and read about the benefits you get as you complete each evolution phase.
  • Management Pack Evolution: provides the information on how to move from OM Smart Plug-ins (SPIs) to OBM Management Packs (MPs). It explains conceptual differences between SPIs and MPs, describes the MP licensing model, and gives an overview of the steps required for replacing a SPI with the corresponding MP.
