Microsoft has created a plan to show users how to integrate its server software.
Called the Common Engineering Roadmap, it explains how users can link Microsoft Virtual Server 2005 and Microsoft Operations Manager 2005 software to reduce the cost of managing IT.

The roadmap is part of Microsoft’s Dynamic Systems Initiative. This is its blueprint for managing systems. It relies on application systems being developed so that they are able to check the environment in which they operate.
With DSI such applications will contain knowledge of IT policies that govern how they operate and will be able to ascertain whether the user experience is within pre-defined limits.
Microsoft introduced two further system management products for its SMS 2003 systems management server at its annual IT Forum, which was held earlier this month. The device management pack adds device discovery, and the SMS 2003 operating system deployment pack simplifies the rolling out of Windows OS desktop images automatically.
