We have created a dedicated SmartCloud Monitoring DeveloperWorks forum:
Please visit the IBM SmartCloud Monitoring forum, where users can discuss technical topics related to the product and its deployment. SmartCloud Monitoring is a product bundle featuring existing Tivoli infrastructure management products with new enhancements and integrations. Forum users are encouraged to share their solutions and ideas in open discussions, including customizations, custom reports, integrations with other Tivoli and third-party products, user scenarios and workarounds to product limitations.
My name is Marvin Goodman, and I'm the Product Manager for SmartCloud Monitoring, a new offering that was released very late in December.

The goal was to provide a simple-to-purchase solution (one part number to monitor both the virtual infrastructure and the virtual machines running with in it.
As a new offering, we're still working feverishly to develop new product collateral, including PowerPoint presentations, white papers, demo videos and other materials. Those materials will be shared here, as well on the product's main web page: http://www-01.ibm.com/software/tivoli/products/smartcloud-monitoring/
