(I asked this question over on Stack Overflow and they sent me here. Sorry for the very basic question, but I have purely coding experience - no server management stuff at all - and this is overwhelming me, to say the least...)
I just cannot wrap my head around the differences among these products. I've never used any of them - I'm working on a piece of technical writing which references all three.
The way I currently understand it is that Windows/MS System Center and HP Operations Manager are different companies' responses to the same need: a system management, collection of monitors and logs, etc. Is this a correct understanding?
As for SCOM, some sources seem to make it out to be another name for Windows System Center and others seem to say it's a UI and notification-type addon?!
Thank you very much for any help at all. All of these names are so similar, and the more I read the more confused I get...
