Dear AOTC members and conference interested parties,
There is an exciting change for our 2012 AOTC event. For the first time in 2012, the Automated Operations Technical Council (AOTC) joins IBM Pulse at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas March 4-7, 2012 and we invite you to take part in the action!
AOTC 2012 will offer four full days of sessions focused on the IBM Tivoli® System Automation family of products. The first three days will be open to all Pulse attendees. There will also be a special evening reception for you to network in an informal setting with other System z attendees. For AOTC members only, a special fourth day Client Council will be held, where discussions typically include product futures and requirements; therefore, as in past years, all attendees for day four will be required to sign a confidential non-disclosure agreement.
In addition, AOTC attendees will have access to all the activities of Pulse 2012, IBM Tivoli's premiere conference. At this year's conference you'll have an opportunity to network with over 7,000 colleagues and attend our largest-ever Solution Expo.
As always, we really appreciate your willingness to participate in AOTC. In particular, we would like to encourage you to present your experiences at the conference since this is a valuable source of ideas and solutions both for IBM and for other participants. So, whether you want to talk for 10 minutes or 60, we want to hear from you! And as additional encouragement, speakers who deliver qualified AOTC topics will have their conference fee waived! **
Submit your session today at the Speaker submission site. AOTC is Track 6 in the Cloud and Data Center Optimization stream.
