If you're new to zEnterprise or even if you've had your system for a while, this is a great opportunity to listen to speaker Randy Scott discuss this topic (and there will be a live question-and-answer session as well as a future replay).
Here's a brief description of the webcast and we look forward to you attending:
This in-depth look at Tivoli Application Management for zEnterprise can help you:
Integrate end-to-end active and passive monitoring
View and monitor workloads for composite applications, physical and virtual machines, groups and response times
Use alerting capabilities for early detection of costly performance problems and outages
Have you attended any of the Jams (interactive webcasts) that Tivoli broadcasts on Tuesdays at noon, ET? Never heard of them? Sign up for a weekly notice of upcoming Jams by subscribing to, well, our weekly notice, Upcoming Jams. Here's this week's write-up.
These Jams are unique - ongoing weekly meeting-grounds on topics of direct interest to service management practitioners, with live Q&A, replays and downloads available in 24 hours, lots of related resources - and now, an "open mike" right here for questions, requests, feedback and push-back.
Because I manage the Jams calendar, I'm especially interested to know what you think about any given Jam or the program as a whole. So let's hear from you, loud and clear!
Here's a quick run-down of tomorrow's Jam. Sign up to attend if it's something that applies and appeals to you.

If there is one webcast about service management that you listen to this year...well, I guess the first question I'd ask is why you're limiting yourself to one...but if there was just one, this would be it.
It's been said that the only difference between a native Texan and an adopted Texan is who complains more about the crazy, long hot summers. For those of you who know neither, believe me when I tell you the natives complain a lot more. The adoptees relish it.
A lifelong Texan and passionate runner, my idea of good weather is not based on how hot and sunny it is outside. I prefer a temperature just shy of 50 degrees with plenty of cloud coverage, and even a little rain is welcome. As my skin sizzled under the 97 degree sky yesterday, I was thinking about IBM CloudBurst and wishing I could order up my own personal cloud . . . maybe someday IBM will invent that!
In the mean time, here are some of the features and benefits you can expect when you introduce IBM CloudBurst in your enterprise with the dynamic infrastructure of IBM Service Management.
Faster time to value: Delivered on site as a prepackaged and self-contained service delivery platform for cloud computing... virtualization included! Flexibility: Scalable platform allows you to deploy now and easily scale as business needs change. Ease of use: Self service portal for rapid access to cloud delivery Simplified systems administration: Integrated systems management of both physical and virtual workloads - through a single interface to blade servers, storage and networking Superior reliability: Keeps your virtualized infrastructure up and running - with multiple layers of redundancy built into the hardware platform resulting in no single point of failure. Energy efficiency: Designed from the ground up to dramatically improve power utilization and reduce energy costs. Integrated power management to help you plan, predict, monitor and actively manage power consumption of your BladeCenter servers.
Are you interested in learning more about Cloud Computing and Virtualization? Be sure to register and attend these two community webcasts happening this week on June 8th and 9th. These promise to be very informative events you don’t want to miss!
WEBCAST on Wednesday, June 8, 2011 at 11:00AM Eastern USA Webcast title: Get your image sprawl monster under control – secrets to image management from an expert Sign up for this webcast here
Description: Companies have embraced virtualization primarily to impro! ve utilization of hardware and save costs. However, virtualization especially on x86, has led to significant growth in management costs. Much of this increased cost stems from growth in images. We will discuss some of the key challenges around managing images and how IBM is taking a holistic approach to solving these pain points and restoring control.
Speaker: Ruth Willenborg, IBM Distinguished Engineer in IBM Software Group, Tivoli
