Monitoring of the legacy applications.

Occasional Contributor

Azure Monitor has made lot of good things. And I think companies in future may try to replace their legacy monitoring tool with Azure Monitor.  I think we need more solutions to monitor the legacy applications. 


- SCOM provides lot of legacy management packs, like mp for SharePoint, Windows Server, IIS , Skype for Business.   IS there any plans to release solution packs for these ? 

- O365 Solution Pack was good. I think now its replaced with the Azure Sentinel O365 connector.  AFAIK, this new connector can do things specific to security. But what about general monitoring of O365 ?
