1 Introduction to the Connector

The Microsoft System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) connector integrates Oracle Enterprise Manager with Microsoft SCOM through web services. Using this connector you can create, update or close alerts on the SCOM system for any event generated in Enterprise Manager, which ensures an active synchronization between SCOM and Enterprise Manager. Events in Enterprise Manager are equivalent to alerts in the SCOM system.
