1 - News

2010-09-15 HowTo Section was started and Hung has written a short part about correlation...

2010-07-07 OpenUMR Beta 1.1.0.3 release is out now. This current release contains some new features.
For a brief overview take a look at the release notes.

2 - Basic Idea

The basic idea behind OpenUMR is to combine the power of Open Source with the strength of Operations Manager 2007 R2. Open Source
gives us the flexibility we need to handle the complexity that is caused by the individual needs of an enterprise IT environment.

Life means diversity! - So we think the most efficient way to build up an effective enterprise Monitoring is to integrate existing IT-Systems
Management solutions instead of replacing them. In our opinion that's the most practical and successful approach. With OpenUMR we want
to develop a powerful interface that supports the Operations Manager 2007 R2 in the Role as MoM (Manager of Managers) System.

Our wish is that OpenUMR grows by a strong community that improves the code, creates a lot of different management packs and event
message senders (OpenUMS) in all kinds of languages (Perl, Ruby, Python, PHP, PowerShell, Groovy etc...)
