Over on my personal blog, I posted last week about Building a better business: Hiring ducks and eagles for the right jobs.
In that post, I explored the personal experience and positive results of team hiring practices that focused on finding the right person for the right job. The net conclusion of that post being: "Hire to your needs, but also to the candidate’s strengths and abilities. It isn’t easy, but the rewards and your future success depend upon it."
But, I'd like to take that conclusion a step further now, since "future success" is a bit too nebulous for my taste.
From the social business perspective, hiring the ducks and eagles is a critical portion of our success, as people in the right job tend to be more motivated and passionate about what they do. It is this increased level of passion that is such an important building block of success in social business. Without passion, social business just becomes activities that fall flat, and your audiences will pick up on that immediately.
Social businesses with passionate employees, however, are thriving and forging new paths in the world around us. It is that passion which drive employees, either on their own or with slight urging, to get out in the social spaces and share their knowledge and excitement with others. While the passion IS infectious, it also needs to be cultivated.
That passion is either fostered or stifled long before the employee ever has opportunity to play in the social spaces. It begins during the hiring process: identifying and hiring to both your needs and the candidate's abilities right from the get-go builds that foundation to grow your company into the motivated and passionate social business you need. Hire a duck for an eagle's job (or vice versa) and you will stifle that passion. Likewise, put the duck in the right pond and enable the eagle to soar, and that same stifled passion now becomes a raging fire driving both to spread the excitement.
Your audiences can tell the difference between mere activity and authentic excitement, and they will treat your social business accordingly... Can you really afford to not hire the ducks and eagles?
I'll leave you with the video that inspired both post titles and over-arching topics: You Can’t Send A Duck To Eagle School:

Jazz team server has a detailed reporting mechanism for the floating license usage and these reports can be very helpful in managing the available floating licenses effectively. The reports give a picture of license consumption in a given time frame. This not only helps you to manage your licenses but also provides a big picture about your license requirements for a project.
There are two ways to collect data about the license usage on a license server:
* Historic usage snapshots - Data that tracks how many of each CAL were used concurrently over time.
* Full license usage log - Exactly which users used which CALs and for how long.
Historic usage snapshots
By default, the license server will collect basic license usage data and store the data as historic snapshots. The data collected is only how many of each Client Access License, CAL were used, and by which server. That data is used to generate the graphs provided by the admin web UI.
You can see the admin web UI graphs by going to this URL, http
Load the admin web UI of the license server, usually http
Three ways of monitoring the license usage on the web UI:
1. Click the server tab and in the licensing pane, Click reports.
2. On the floating license usage page, select a license type from the menu.
3. Optional : Enter values in the start date and end date fields.
4. Click on the "Reports" link in the "Floating License Usage" section of the left navigation area.
The page to obtain the floating license usage looks like this:
In below given scenario:
We are running the reports for the IBM Rational Quality Manager – Quality Professional – Token licenses from September 1st to September 10th.
Further the details about the license denial's if any also would be present in the logs.
In below provided image, It is clear that the consumption of the tokens is high from 09/09/2012 to 09/12/2012.
You can also get access to the raw data through the generic reporting UI by doing the following:

Full license usage log
To use the full license log, you must first enable it through the admin web UI. You can do it through the following steps:
After the license log has been enabled a file will be generated for each license action that happens on the server. Here is an extract of a sample log:
