This chapter demonstrated why System Center is relevant to Office 365, with a particular
focus on Operations Manager to monitor the Office 365 workload. You learned the concept
of Management Packs and that there is one designed for Office 365.
Although we focused on Operations Manager, remember that the other System Center
2012 suite components also play significant roles that help you manage Office 365. For
example, Configuration Manager's software deployment capability can be used to deploy
the Office Professional Plus subscription to desktops.
If you already have System Center in your organization, you can leverage your investment
and extend your enterprise monitoring and management capabilities to include Office 365.
If you do not have System Center, we hope you learned how each of the suite components
will benefit Office 365. Furthermore, like AD FS, the solution can be leveraged for other
non-Office 365 applications and systems in your organization.
This Office 365 book is not intended to extensively cover the capabilities of System Center;
we are only scratching the surface in terms of its capabilities. There are other books and
resources dedicated to the System Center 2012 suite. However, we hope you gained insight
and knowledge on how to configure Operations Manager and how to use the Office 365
MP to monitor your Office 365 subscription.
