In previous versions vRealize Hyperic was used to perform application monitoring, with the newer versions of vRealize Operations this is done using the EndPoint Operations agent (EPOPS agent). Application specific intelligence is added using management packs. To monitor Microsoft Exchange you can now use the new vRealize Operations Solution for Microsoft Exchange.
