Microsoft has released Visio Add-in for System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 beta ( It is a add-on to Microsoft Office Visio 2007 Professional SP1. With this add-on you can link health state from components in Operations Manager 2007 R2 to objects in Visio. This is a great way to visualize complex systems and business processes. You can use the “view in fullscreen” option in Visio to show the Visio documents on a big screen in your IT office or call center.

The Visio Add-in has the following features:

*Distributed applications exported from System Center Operations Manager 2007 R2 (release candidate) as Visio documents automatically show live health state information on the exported objects when opened in Visio.
*You can easily create new Visio documents and link shapes to any managed object (computer, database, web site, perspective etc.) to show the current health state.
*You can automatically link entire existing Visio documents to the computer and network devices managed by Operations Manager by matching computer names or IP addresses.
*Health states can be automatically refreshed in Visio documents. You can use this option along with Visio’s full screen view to create dashboard views suitable for use as a summary display in a datacenter control room.
*Predefined data graphics enable you to toggle from Operations Manager health icons to shape color for health state.
