This series of articles describes actual examples of where IBM® WebSphere® sMash was selected and used to perform innovative and valuable tasks to aid in the operations of IBM's Green Innovation Data Center (GIDC) in Southbury, CT, USA. Part 1 looked at how WebSphere sMash was used to build a flexible framework for constructing data center dashboards. In this second article, you will see how WebSphere sMash can be used to wrap external systems management tools with easy-to-use APIs to facilitate the automation of costly manual tasks that used to add to the overhead of running the GIDC. This content is part of the IBM WebSphere Developer Technical Journal.
