Modern IT systems and software rely on a delicate balance of interoperability to function properly. Each piece of software has its own individual function, but the way they interact with one another helps to form the overall IT systems that make businesses run.
Businesses who leverage Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) within their organization for proactive monitoring are well aware of the need for uninterrupted computer system functionality. The ability to check the health and performance of individual operating systems and applications and view this information in a single interface is invaluable for IT professionals, which is why we are happy to report that RightFax integrates seamlessly into Microsoft SCOM and Azure Operations Management Suite (OMS).
Integrating RightFax with SCOM
Businesses who rely on their enterprise fax server for sales, compliance or financial reasons know that every second a system is down, so is the business. Getting the server back up quickly is essential to prevent a breach in compliance or a loss of sales.
By integrating RightFax with Microsoft SCOM, businesses can be proactively alerted of issues as they monitor the health and performance of a RightFax server. Alerts let the user know via SCOM when a break in functionality occurs. Admins can execute RightFax actions from their main SCOM dashboard, monitor them and receive an alert when something requires their attention.
This allows users to quickly rectify the problem or contact their RightFax support provider for immediate assistance before it becomes at outage.
The RightFax Management Pack
The RightFax Management Pack for SCOM gives users even more control over the features that they can proactively monitor and the alerts they receive. The RightFax MP can help reduce the downtime of servers and allow businesses to avoid missed sales, costly outages and interruption to daily business.
The RightFax MP for SCOM enables IT professionals to:
- Automatically monitor their entire RightFax environment
- View all of their RightFax servers on a single dashboard
- Send test faxes between RightFax channels to test functionality
- Monitor fax conversion errors
- Gather data on sent and received faxes
- Azure OMS integration as an option for customers wanting a customizable dashboard in the cloud
- Monitor sending test faxes to remote or external locations
- Collect performance data from different components
- Monitoring MSMQ Queue, which in latest version of RightFax is a key component of the product
The RightFax MP for SCOM also now supports optional integration with Azure Operations Management Suite (OMS) allowing customers to forward the RightFax data collected in the SCOM MP to Azure and create their own dashboards for different audiences within the organization.
