I have become familiar with Savision because of Live Maps. Live Maps Unity is a great Business Service Management solution that monitors service health performance and with it you can create dynamic and graphical dashboards easily. This is done in combination with OpsMgr, which I implement for different customers.
Within Live Maps you can create dashboards with drag-and-drop functionality at once. It's like Microsoft Visio, but then using different build-in templates and live objects!

End of this month, during MS TechEd in Barcelona, Savision will bring new releases and updates on Live Maps, but also on Cloud Reporter and Cloud Advisor. Let's have a look at the changes:
-Live Maps Unity, will have new features such as Performance Data, Out-of-box Services and .Net Application Discovery. Savision have been working very hard during this year to move away from being just an OpsMgr add-on, and only dashboards and maps, so with their Live Maps Unity release, they have become instead a Business Service Management solution.
-Cloud Reporter is a robust capacity planning solution for private clouds based on Microsoft’s Hyper-V and VMware vSphere, which will have the same wisdom and analysis to VMware that is offered for Hyper-V.
-Cloud Advisor integrates natively into the Virtual Machine Manager and vSphere console, analyzes your Hyper-V or VMware environment for problems, and then provides specific and detailed recommendations to tune VM's and hosts for better performance and availability.
To give you a glimpse of upcoming features in Live Maps Unity, have a look at these posts already:
-Dynamically Updating Services
Within the posts you can see that the following features are coming:
-Performance information with HTML5 support for performance data
-Out-of-the-box templates for Microsoft Exchange, Microsoft Active Directory and Microsoft SharePoint (which looks great to me!)
-Cloud Reporter and Cloud Advisor can be used for both Microsoft’s Hyper-V as VMware vSphere in the next release.
Update: There are multiple webinars to come for new Q4 2014 Releases. Don't miss them!
