SCOM vs OpsMgr

This will not be a post with the technical content you might be used to read on this blog.

In the last 5 years I have been working on “a few” OpsMgr projects with different customers… one thing I have to remind almost every customer of is that they should not use the acronym SCOM for System Center Operations Manager.

Why?
The main reason is the community. Today everyone (well… the most of us) use OpsMgr in writing.
When you search for SCOM you get more hits than a search for OpsMgr, but most of the hits are pointing you to old articles and blogposts.
A few years back the most of us (even Microsoft) used the acronym SCOM, but as I just pointed out… today almost everyone is using OpsMgr.

Ok I’ll use OpsMgr, but what to say?
You probably go nuts if you try to say “System Center Operations Manager” every time…
I have heard a few:
OpsMgr
Ops Manager
Operations Manager
Operations

I probably use Ops Manager the most.

So why this blogpost?
Ehrm… to give you “new guys” an easier way to search for new articles and to give myself an easier way to search for new articles. 😛

So… please, do not write SCOM, write OpsMgr instead.
