This was the first step to delivering an integrated overview of Microsoft's preferred partner solutions directly within the SCOM console. However, clicking into this area would just return a message asking that you come back soon for more information.
In the past week, this feature has now gone live and when you click on it you'll notice a number of already well-known third-party vendors such as NiCE, Comtrade, OpsLogix and Silect.
For each partner, you can see a description of the solution they have on offer, along with the version, release date and a link to their website. Interestingly, all of the current solutions listed here are offered for free - though I would imagine paid-for solutions will creep in once the feature matures.
Either way, when you need to recommend third-party solutions to your customers (or boss), this area can serve as a useful vote of confidence to show that vendors listed here have been endorsed by Microsoft to run their products on SCOM.
Over the coming months, I expect this feature to become much more populated as additional preferred partners are brought on-board.
