Interesting question, it's usually deployed to your host servers.

The VMware vCenter Operations Manager 5.8.0 Virtual Appliance is deployed as an OVA, and it's unlikely you will be able to deploy this virtual appliance to VMware Workstation.

The OVA package is not compatible with VMware Workstation 8.0 and 9.0, I've just tried to import.

You would have to manually "hack and slash" the package to get it installed.

No risk implementing live.  Deploy OVA version 5.7.2 and create ip pool for the same subnet but don't enable it (it's required because it's a vAPP with 2 IPs).  

Usually requires about 3 weeks for trending to settle down (cycles)

It's your lucky day as the new version came out today, here's the documentation for it

Download the OVA or OVF packages from VMware.

Create a vApp Network Pool.

Disable HA, or remove one of your hosts from the Cluster

You just browse to the OVA or OVF and Import.

(Disabling HA or removing a Host from Cluster to Deploy to!) is required because of a BUG!

You'll get an error otherwise, Importing!
