The SCOM MP is a bit slow, and take long time to discover objects (sometimes hours, depend on the interval configured). I think OCUM should be kept as the main tool for the ONTAP monitoring. We  had some extensive 1st line processes around SCOM alerts in a company I worked for. And we still decided to invest in integrating OCUM with our ticketing system as well (SCSM).
