PULSE 2012 is only 4 weeks away from now. As you might know, Pulse 2012 takes place in Las Vegas from March 4-8, 2012. It includes a FOUR day Automated Operations Technical Council (AOTC) track focused on the IBM Tivoli System Automation family of products. Take the opportunity to meet representatives from the SA and NetView development teams as well as to meet many customers for networking, information exchange and lively discussion. Don't miss the last day where the development team shares future plans (requires registration and sign-off of a non-disclosure agreement). We want to highlight a few presentations of the AOTC track:
1826 What's New in IBM Tivoli System Automation for z/OS (by Walter Schueppen)
Automation is one of the cornerstones that helps you to run your data center efficiently. IBM Tivoli System Automation for z/OS (SA z/OS) is the flagship of the IBM automation suite. Come and learn how SA z/OS 3.3 (which is the latest release) helps you to manage your data center, and the role SA z/OS plays in the service management discipline. This session will give you an overview of the new/enhanced functions provided in SA z/OS 3.3. It will also outline the enhancements made to the operational interfaces, in particular the Tivoli Enterprise Portal (TEP) based UI.
1828 Getting Started with IBM Tivoli System Automation for z/OS (by Juergen Holtz)
IBM Tivoli System Automation for z/OS (SA z/OS) plays an important role in improving system and application availability for planned and unplanned outages, and in enabling fast and robust operations in a continuously changing IT environment. SA z/OS is designed to automate z/OS system operations and System z hardware operations, and to coordinate I/O switch configuration activities. This session will explain the basic concepts of the SA z/OS system operations component that automates many system console operations. It also discusses selected operator tasks such as startup, monitoring, recovery and shutdown of z/OS subsystems, components, and applications; as well as operator assistance functions that facilitate some of the daily operating tasks.
1838 Integrating Automation and Scheduling (by Richard Rothermel)
For many years, IBM Tivoli System Automation for z/OS (SA for z/OS) and Tivoli Workload Scheduler (TWS) have been working in concert, each component doing what it does best. There are several interfaces between SA for z/OS and TWS. This session gives an overview of these interfaces, their pros and cons, and the benefits you can gain in using them. Attendees will also learn how the various interfaces can be used efficiently, and what needs to be kept in mind when using each function.
1964 What's New in IBM Tivoli NetView 6.1 (by Larry Green)
This session will give attendees a look into the new features of IBM Tivoli NetView for z/OS 6.1.
