Mark your Pulse agenda with this information-packed Pulse session, delivered by C&SI Accelerated Value Team members, Lakshminarayanan Srinivasan and Aram Eblighatian.
This session provides insight into a unified approach to managing divergent cloud systems like OpenStack, HP Public Cloud or Amazon EC2 from an IBM Endpoint Manager (IEM) console. This extender-based solution allows customers to gain visibility and take actions without having an IEM footprint on any of the cloud artifacts. The solution also allows you to continue to use your current cloud management interfaces in parallel with IEM. There will be live demo showing how you can do common chores related to managing OpenStack and/or Amazon EC2 from the IEM console.
Stream: Managing and Securing the Mobile Infrastructure | Track: Endpoint and Mobile Device Management
This session takes place on Mon Feb 24 ( 5:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m. ) in room 112.

Relationships of trust and understanding within your own business are crucial to every success.
You may have relationships with key players from your in-house departments who play a part in the full cycle of your service delivery or product offering. Maybe your business relies on external suppliers to advise you of product choices, changes with demand, or best route to market. Your IBM software investment is no different! In fact, as a foundation to your business processes and the interface to your customers, it could be the most important asset for which you need an experienced guide to work alongside.
Many of the top businesses across industries engage this essential IBM service, so if you are interested to learn more, why not check out the IBM web page (ibm.com/software/support/acceleratedvalue) or contact The IBM Software Accelerated Value Program directly: email@example.com
