SMS is used by cellular phones for text messaging, and MOM is who supplied the X chromosome to you.
Any serious answers? We use SMS but I'm interested in learning more about MOM.
MOM is for monitoring and reporting. Sends alerts when x counter exceeds y condition and such. It monitors WMI interfaces, perfmon counters, event logs, etc. MS had an interface demo here: http://www.microsoft.com/seminar/shared/asp/view.asp?url=/seminar/en/20040617tnt1-112d3/manifest.xml
Might give you a better idea. It's very useful but you need to really have an organized plan for deploying it, otherwise it will just flood you with alerts you don't care about.
You actually got me on that one.
