From the session “System Center : First look at advancements coming this year” held 26.09 we got the following annoucements regarding SCOM.

  • New release cadence.
    • System Center 1801 prieview early November. Release Q1 2018

  • Windows Server 2016 SDDC monitoring
  • Improved Unix/Linux support
    • “setup improvements” hopefully a better way to deploy “manually”
    • Kerberos support
    • Log file monitoring with FluentD. Essentially this enables us to create monitors etc. based on logfiles as we can with Windows
  • SCOM 2016 HTML5 console
    • Improved diagnostics and drill down – this is huge for those who haven’t invested in third-party software
    • Custom widget support. Display other charts on your dashboard.
