At Tivoli User Group meetings, members talk with each other about anything from the latest TSM release to where's the next happy hour...But what if those meetings aren't often enough? What if you haven't yet found that "work buddy" who will challenge you to stay current and not judge you for asking about something that's "so yesterday."
The Tivoli User Community has a new 3Q theme focused on “Skills Optimization and Innovative Products”. What products do you consider to be most innovative today? How are you keeping your skills up to date on these new technologies and in this rapidly evolving marketplace? Join the discussion! We have an open forum for your ideas, with insights from IBM, business partners and other thought leaders. Join us - read, request information, and share your thoughts.
User Community’s initial Community Focus on Virtualization and Cloud Computing was
a great success in 2Q. Thousands of
members took advantage of this new community program to engage with others and
learn about these hot topics through webcasts, forums and other community
resources. The 2Q Community Focus is
still accessible and has some excellent resources.
We’ll continue to leverage community forums, polls, and peer networking capabilities to help members engage with each other to share their thoughts and collaborate. Some highlights for the 3Q Community Focus include
- Comedy Relief - Enjoy the new forum about an "interesting or funny class experience" from your peers
- New Resources - Product information and education links consolidated to one easy to use list
- Live Webcasts with thought leaders– there are several webcasts planned to cover innovative products, including a July 20th webcast on application performance management using Tivoli ITCAM for transactions - Register here and a number of sessions skills optimization, including a July 27th webcast on finding the Tivoli Training and Certification you need on ibm.com - Register here.
- Free Education – IBM Tivoli Education will be providing free online IBM Tivoli Monitoring Fundamentals training sessions to all members later in July. Everyone who attends this live training will receive a 50% off the Monitoring Associate Certification exam!
Get Involved! We’ll be updating the content throughout the quarter so keep checking back. Our drumbeat will continue through the end of the year with a 4Q Community Focus on IT Governance and Risk Management.
