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

Temple University IBM Software Accelerated Value Program Case Study
Founded in 1884, Temple University is a comprehensive urban public research university in the United States offering 366 academic degree programs. As part of a major modernization of its enterprise reporting services solution, Temple chose to utilize the IBM Software Accelerated Value Program block-hours offering.
As part of a move to a new SunGard Banner ERP system, Temple University had built a data warehouse and analytics solution based on IBM Cognos software. When it was time to upgrade to a newer version of Cognos, Temple’s in-house team was keen to learn from the experts and become more self-sufficient.
Temple University chose to utilize the IBM Software Accelerated Value Program, which provides dedicated technical resources on either a subscription or an hourly model. Temple purchased 40 hours of technical assistance, during which an IBM Accelerated Value Specialist worked on-site with the team to complete the upgrade and transfer knowledge about Cognos that would help with future upgrades.
