Microsoft Operations Management Suite (OMS) Cookbook is now published. I am thrilled to announce that this is now readily available via the publisher’s (Packt) various channels and platforms, including on Amazon in both print, and Kindle format. Amazon now shows the final page count (448). Amazon also shows the print version release date as May 9th, but you should be able to order there as well, and it gets fulfilled in a few days. The Kindle version is available immediately.

In this book, I sought to provide a useful guide with current, up-to-date information on a platform that provides incredible value to organizations. As organizations navigate their respective digital transformation initiatives, OMS stands out as a platform that enables them to accelerate the transition of their IT to modern cloud management, enabling them to quickly, innovatively, and consistently provide higher customer value. It is with this notion in mind that, in this book, I have sought to emphasize: the latest features of the platform, hybrid management and other relevant concepts, and the Microsoft roadmap for modern management for the cloud world, and especially in the context of how OMS fits into that roadmap. Importantly, I have an entire chapter dedicated to learning about the new Query Language (Kusto) for Azure Log Analytics and Application Insights. This book is written in the publisher’s cookbook format with “recipes” that walk you through detailed steps for configuring and utilizing the various OMS service offerings for Insights & Analytics, Automation¬† & Control, Protection & Recovery, and Security & Compliance.


You will find this book replete with strategies for understanding, utilizing and getting excellent value from the OMS solution offerings, underlying Azure services and attendant capabilities. The intended audience for this book is really anyone who is interested in utilizing the power of the cloud to transform their management experience and capabilities. The book is comprised of 9 chapters that cover all the platform service offerings, and shows readers how to onboard to the platform, navigate various management and other considerations, and understand how this platform can enable the operations technology organizations to provide business value.

What You will Learn:

  • Understand the important architectural considerations and strategies for OMS
  • Use advanced search query commands and strategies to derive insights from indexed data
  • Make use of alerting in OMS such as alert actions, and available options for the entire lifecycle of the alert
  • Discover some practical tips for monitoring Azure container service containers and clusters using OMS
  • Review and use the backup options available through the Azure backup service, as well as data recovery options available through Azure Site Recovery (ASR)
  • Understand how to advance important DevOps concepts within your IT organization
  • Learn how to manage configurations and automate process

My intent is that after reading this book, users will be able to configure and utilize solution offerings in OMS, understand OMS workflows, how to unlock insights, integrate capabilities into new or existing workflows, manage configurations and automate tasks and processes. Cheers!
