Good news for all is that the “Call for Papers” for Pulse 2010 has been extended by popular demand. November 20th is the revised deadline so there is more time to finalize creative input. I spoke with Marcus Boone, product manager for Tivoli’s system z portfolio, regarding suggestions for Pulse participation. He is anxious to hear from those customers who can share real-world experiences on how an integrated approach to service management on System z is creating real benefits. Virtualization projects with savings, new Linux workload projects or best practices in the very complex world of ‘always available’ are good examples. Marcus believes Pulse 2010’s emphasis on alternative forms of customer participation, such as roundtables, panels and open discussions to support a topic will be both more interesting and more meaningful to all.
Please plan to join the conversation. Submit your proposal online at http://www.ibm.com/software/tivoli/pulse/.
