 MOM SDK Banner


Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) 2005 provides event-driven operations monitoring, performance tracking, security policy enforcement, and auditing capability.

The MOM software development kit (SDK) provides developers and administrators with information about extending and customizing MOM. The documentation includes information about creating MOM applications with the .NET Framework, creating custom reports, and connecting MOM to other management or help desk products.

Where Applicable

The information in this SDK is primarily for users of MOM 2005. Reference topics will indicate whether a topic is applicable to earlier versions of MOM.

You can develop MOM applications using any programming language supported by the .NET Framework. MOM response scripts can be created in any ActiveX scripting language, such as VBScript, and JScript. Data access uses any technology compatible with Microsoft SQL Server™. Custom MOM reports are developed using SQL Server 2000 Reporting Services.
