Dramatically improve the presentation layer
This is the biggest issue when it comes to 'selling' SCOM to a broader internal audience, be they IT or beyond. It's so frustrating that, despite its capabilities, the arguments for it are always seriously undermined by insipid health, performance views and reports.
MP's should have out of the box views that really provide the wow factor. For example the tile views in the more recent SQL MP's are fantastic. The introduction of tiles in dashboards has been generally a boon but only compared to the paucity of decent visuals to date.
We need access to views that are designed for at-a-glance, high level health states of monitored services (green/amber/red) that can be presented on large monitors, for example.
3rd party vendors leverage off this weakness in SCOM to provide awesome views at a price, why can't these capabilities be available out of the box?
Customising views is rewarding but, let's face it, we're all very time poor these days!
What is your opinion on HTML5 dashboard? Would that serve the purpose?
