I just love it when everything falls into place, don't you? The planets are in alignment. We have a black belt team of architects in place, and we are on a new industry solution mission! This has motivated me to start a new blog focused on Industry Solutions and the critical role Tivoli plays for the industry... So why Tivoli and why now? How can software that has traditionally managed IT, be not only relevant, but essential to Industry based solutions? In case you have not been watching Tivoli lately, there are a number of galatically important events that have prominently positioned Planet Tivoli for this new role. They include the following:
Tivoli's successful evolution to IBM service management (ISM) which elevates Tivoli from IT management to the management of critical business applications
Tivoli's successful acquistions of key industry management software like Micromuse, MRO, Consul, and Vallent which really make the connection to industry-specific management
Tivoli's alignment with industry standards and the ISM open platform and ecosystem as an enabler to build out industry solutions from numerous technologies
And last but certainly not least, the evolution of SOA based industry frameworks that require a holistic and systematic approach to management.
I will be outlining which industry plays we are starting with and exactly how Tivoli will play a role in each play. so... watch this 'space!' We are in orbit!
