Even though server proliferation can be partially addressed through virtualization, the usage of virtual and physical assets becomes complex to accurately assess or manage. Cost management is crucial to integrate into overall service management, especially with a move into cloud. This webcast discusses how to implement a financial management roadmap and the key requirements for cloud transparency-- the ability to allocate IT costs, usage, and value.

I had great discussions at Impact 2014 on DevOps, SmartCloud Orchestrator, SoftLayer, BlueMix and so much more. One of the most common topics I was asked about was how SmartCloud Orchestrator relates to PureApplication System. SmartCloud Orchestrator shares common pattern technology with PureApplication System allowing the same pattern to be moved between environments, and it also provides orchestration capabilities that can be used directly with PureApplication to add significant capabilities to your cloud environments. These orchestration capabilities are built by purposing IBM Business Process Manager for your cloud orchestration needs.
Based on experience with PureApplication System customers, here are my top five reasons to consider adding SmartCloud Orchestrator:
These are just a few reasons to consider adding SmartCloud Orchestrator to your IBM PureApplication System. Here’s a short video showing you how easy it is to integrate PureApplication deployments into SmartCloud Orchestrator. You can download the SmartCloud Orchestrator Content Pack for PureApplication System. Get more information on SmartCloud Orchestrator and go hybrid by checking out PureApplication Services on SoftLayer or get a 30 day trial on SoftLayer.
