IBM OMEGAMON Performance Management Suite for z/OS Hosted Beta Program
To: OMEGAMON Customers and Business Partners
The OMEGAMON Development team is looking for interested customers and business partners to participate in the Hosted Beta Program for the next release of the IBM OMEGAMON Performance Management Suite for z/OS. The Hosted Beta Program is starting, Monday, April 28, 2014 and will initially include OMEGAMON XE for CICS on z/OS, OMEGAMON XE for Messaging on z/OS, and OMEGAMON XE on z/OS.
The Hosted Beta Program is a great way for participants to evaluate the value of new OMEGAMON enhancements as they are being developed and tested, and to interact directly with the OMEGAMON Development team without the requirement to install and run code in your company's environment. This program involves setting aside a few hours of your time to meet with leaders of the OMEGAMON Development team and allow them to give you an online tour of our vNext release features. As a Hosted Beta participant you can provide valuable feedback to influence the capability and value of the new OMEGAMON release. You will be able to validate how new OMEGAMON enhancements can be of value to you, and you will help shape the product capabilities as they are being developed to better match your companies needs.
If you prefer to participate in the hands-on beta installation experience, the OMEGAMON beta code is available for download and installation today. Whether you elect to join the Hosted Beta program or you prefer the experience of installing and running our latest features in your environment, our beta program will be a great way for you to establish a long-term relationship with the OMEGAMON Development team.

* Enhanced 3270 User Interface improvements
