Next Generation of MOM to be Unveiled

Microsoft is set to unveil its plans for the next version of Microsoft Operations Manager next week. The venue will be the Microsoft Management Summit in Las Vegas.

Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) first appeared in 2000 as a server and application management product that Microsoft released based on technology it bought from NetIQ Corp. The next version of MOM will represent Microsoft's first internal overhaul of the NetIQ technology.

The planned feature set for the next version of MOM should also contain clues about Microsoft's direction on management software. The Microsoft stable of management technologies includes MOM, Systems Management Server, some Windows services and Active Directory technologies.

In disclosing Tuesday that details of MOM were forthcoming at the conference next week, Microsoft also confirmed a September Release-to-Manufacturing date for SMS 2003. Next week, Microsoft will also provide details of some add-on feature packs for SMS 2003 that will be available sometime after SMS 2003 goes to manufacturing.

In a housekeeping/marketing move, Microsoft this week also changed the name of its Management Business Group, which handles its management products, to the Enterprise Management Division.
