IT administrators have a strong desire to have instant access to the machines under their watch. Smart phones now provide the ability to deliver fast notifications as well as a rich management interfaces to resolve issues quickly. IBM Research has developed a first-of-a-kind mobile application called "IBM Mobile Systems Remote" which can be used to monitor and manage multiple BladeCenters. This iPhone application has been released on Apple's App Store in 2011. This application is a necessary seed for an ambitious multi-year research program. During 2011, Research plans to continue to adapt and explore the potential of leveraging these rich mobile environments for managing IBM systems. This research will address both depth in potential functionality, as well as, breadth in supported mobile devices and systems it can manage.
