Last week, IBM made an historic announcement with the introduction of the highly anticipated zEnterprise - a first of a kind technology representing a new dimension in computing. zEnterprise integrates IBM's leading technologies to dramatically improve the productivity of today's multi-architecture data centers and tomorrow's private clouds. Truly, a smarter system for a smarter data center.

As far as holiday gifts go, a brand new shiny zEnterprise wouldn't be too shaby,* and there is enough of a lull in the beginning of the new year for planning that a webcast like Tivoli for zEnterprise – Speeding problem isolation and resolution makes a lot of sense to check out.
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:

If I was a minstrel, I'd be writing a song about our most recent press release (yes, I still have Game of Thrones on my mind).
On Tuesday, IBM announced an exciting new offering in the mainframe portfolio.
Many of the analysts have focused on the $75,000 entry price point. And that's cool.
There are customers who on Monday didn't think that they could afford a mainframe and are today putting it on their short list. What they will find is a platform that is highly reliable and will help them achieve the levels of innovation needed to drive their business.
Of course, I'm an Integrated Service Management guy and at the end of the day it's all about the service.
Which is why the good news is that we provide a Integrated Service Management capabilities and portfolio solutions for the mainframe.
A solid portfolio of hardware and software that continues to get stronger. To quote Ana Gasteyer as Martha Stewart, "It's a good thing."
For more information contact your IBM sales rep or one of our Business Partners using the Business Partner Locator website and feel free to leave comments below about your positive experiences with the mainframe.
* Statement of direction is intended to provide insight into IBM plans and direction. Availability, prices, ordering information, and terms and conditions will be provided when the product is announced.
All statements regarding IBM's plans, directions, and intent are subject to change or withdrawal without notice

Yes. I used an exclamation point. Because this is that exciting! (there it is again)
The zEnterprise is, as we call it, a “smarter system.” It’s fast. It’s scalable. It’s efficient. It’s reliable. It’s secure. Most important, it’s highly manageable.
With that, IBM Service Management on System z is a single service management engine to give you the visibility, control, and automation needed to deliver quality services, manage risk and compliance, and accelerate business growth.
Together they will assist our customers in innovating their business; and that’s what it’s all about.
The road to a Smarter Planet is going to take systems and software that can be used to create a Smarter Data Center. It's worth your time to read more about it. There’s a ton of press coverage (point your favorite search engine at “zEnterprise” and it’s dealer’s choice on articles). Twitter is already trending with #zEnterprise from analysts, IBMers and customers. And, I’ve also put some ibm.com links below.
That said, in honor of the new announcement I give you a tribute to an old Jeff Foxworthy bit and a little something we like to call “You might be a not so Smarter Data Center.” (and feel free to add yours to the comments section).
