If you have a script running for several hours and you want yourself or a group of people to get informed when it is finished and if there have been errors, you can use SMA to notify everybody the way you want it.

2. Extending existing monitoring systems

In addition to Nagios / Opsview or other monitoring systems, SMA can be very simply attached in order to act as a distributor for notifications. It gives you more finetuning and more delivery-options(SMS, Skype) than the builtin selection.
