It’s well known
that the IBM Prerequisite Scanner can save considerable time and expense during
the deployment of Tivoli
solutions. You’re invited to meet with a Prerequisite Scanner SME at Pulse 2012
to discuss and collaborate on how to accelerate your specific deployments.
Make time to visit the Prerequisite Scanner at the Accelerated Value Program Red Carpet Lounge in the Solution Expo or optionally reserve a specific time to get together by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Get Involved – NOW!
We are actively recruiting participants to connect and collaborate in our open development project by seeing early release plans, download early versions of code, and discuss and influence the future direction of the project. The transparent development approach is a way to put Partners and customers at the center of the development lifecycle by giving complete visibility to what's going on, and provide accurate control and collaborative influence on the outcome of the development cycle to meet your business needs.
Visit the Accelerated Value Program Red Carpet Lounge and sign up to participate in this latest development transformation.

IBM Prerequisite Scanner is designed for adoption by all deployment types, from small proof-of-concepts to large full production rollouts, or from individual Tivoli products to complex solutions. It also provides the ability to extend coverage to other non-IBM products that are part of the overall customer deployment solution.
This white paper describes a fast path adoption of Prerequisite Scanner in 2 weeks. It illustrates the speed and minimal effort required to adopt Prerequisite Scanner by walking through the steps using a sample Tivoli Business Service Manager (TBSM) Version 6.1 adoption.
Tivoli Provisioning Manager expands version coverage to include the latest 7.2.1 release. Netcool/Impact 6.1 coverage is now available to complement the Tivoli Business Service Manager 6.1 coverage made available earlier this year.
IBM Prerequisite Scanner continues to broaden its coverage by adding support for several new products. IBM Prerequisite Scanner is a stand-alone prerequisite checking tool that analyzes system environments before the installation or upgrade of a Tivoli product or IBM solution.
The current list of supported products includes:
Request new product coverage via this ISM Connect Message Board (https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/mydeveloperworks/groups/service/forum/topicThread?topicUuid=e7c440e0-05f2-48f8-9c45-80c94f48b31e) or through the Request for Enhancement (RFE) tool (https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/rfe/)

Eliminating or avoiding installation failures due to missing or incorrect prerequisites is essential in reducing deployment delays and costs. Read about the IBM Prerequisite Scanner in a new Whitepaper just published on the ISM Connect ‘Files’ page. An easy to read high-level summary describing the features of the Prerequisite Scanner is provided as well as the benefits you can capitalize on now by using this simple yet very effective deployment improvement tool.

The IBM Prerequisite Scanner is a stand-alone prerequisite checking tool that analyzes system environments prior to installation of the Tivoli product or maintenance. This tool automates the manual process of checking for prerequisites. When implemented, the Prerequisite Scanner detects missing prerequisites before product installation, enabling remediation without impacting the deployment schedule.
The following products are currently supported by the Prerequisite Scanner:
