What is the “Ask
the Experts online Jam”?
During our Ask the Experts Online Jam session we include products such as ITM, ITCAM, SMCz, OMEGAMON, NetView for z/OS, most Netcool products, Tivoli Service Request Manager, CCMDB, TADDM, and products in the area of security, storage management, and asset management, and more.
Here's how it works in brief:
Step 1: A member has a question – usually fairly technical.
To participate in the jam session, you must be a registered member of the TUC. Please register now

On behalf of the IBM TADDM team, I'd like to thank you for the great response to the first ever TADDM Community Sensor Day to help grow our TADDM community! We had lots of folks interested in sensor day because you helped us spread the news of the event pretty far.
While we had lots of interest, we were only able to work with a handful of clients to build a sensor with us on the first sensor day. We also collaborated with some internal IBM teams. The list of sensors produced include: Informix, Managed Objects, Rational Team Concert server, Microsoft Office SharePoint server, and TADDM.
As the sensors complete certification, they will be published on the TADDM exchange site. The first two sensors, Rational Team Concert and Microsoft Office SharePoint server, are available today at http://tinyurl.com/d8yb3f.
Stay tuned for future sensor day event announcements and training!
Join our TADDM community at http://ibm.com/tivoli/community/taddm.

That is Sensor, not Censor. ;)
At Pulse 2009, we announced a new Tivoli Application Dependency Discovery (TADDM) community on developerWorks. With the advent of this community, we also launched a TADDM group on LinkedIn and Facebook. Today, I'm happy to announce the first ever TADDM Community Sensor Day on April 13, 2009 where IBM experts work with you to build customized sensors and grow our TADDM community.
Mike Mallo, IBM TADDM expert provides the following details on our first ever Sensor day below:
Sensor writers made up of TADDM developers, services, and best practices teams will spend a day with you to write new sensors. Since we are targeting the new "simpler to write" community sensors for this program, we suspect it will take one to two days to complete the sensors with the sensor writers.
Here's how it works. You provide the environment and domain knowledge for the sensor writers to build an application sensor. Setup the application to be discovered on a non-production server that you can make available to the sensor writer so there is no impact to production systems during the sensor writing process. Identify the key configuration files and configuration parameters (up to 10) that TADDM should collect with this sensor.
The sensor writer will write the sensor and make it available for testing, and ultimately for publishing on our TADDM community exchange site.
A few notes:
Since the intent is to benefit the community with these sensors, we are only looking to build sensors for commercially available applications, which others in the community will benefit from as well, such as applications on our hit list: http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/wikis/display/tivoliaddm/Sensor+Hit+List
IBM does not support PMRs or APARs on these community sensors. Since the sensor source code gets published with the sensor, community members are free to modify, recertify, and repost to add any capability or fix any issues. As usual IBM supports related TADDM product issues under your current support agreement.
April 13, 2009 is our first TADDM Community Sensor Day. Please show your interest by using the "Submit Feedback" link on the TADDM Community at http://ibm.com/tivoli/community/taddm to receive further logistics and details. Submission deadline is April 8, 2009.

Q: Tell us a little about yourself.
Denny: I am the Outside-in Design Architect for Information Development in the IBM Tivoli Service Availability and Performance Management organization. One of my main goals is to find new, more effective ways to deliver technical information to our customers. One of the new ways in which we are doing that is through our external wiki strategy. I have been leading this effort for the past year now, and it is really starting to take off.

Tivoli Wiki Central was created after Pulse 2008 as a direct response to customer requests. The first wiki, IBM Tivoli Business Service Manager, launched in February of 2008. At Pulse, we launched our second wiki, which covered the IBM Tivoli Application Dependency Discovery Manager product. During Pulse, customers really liked the wiki strategy and made requests for wikis that covered much of

It’s a new year and what better way to start it out with a new look. This is exactly what the Global Tivoli User Community (TUC) site has as it kicks off 2009.
Danyel Otteson, program manager of the Tivoli User Community, agreed to provide some insight into what we can look forward to in the site’s new facelift.
Q: Tell us a little about the history of the TUC site. What is the purpose of the site, who uses and sponsors it?
Danyel: The Global Tivoli User Community (TUC) was launched in 2003 and celebrated its 5th anniversary this year. The TUC remains focused on "Enabling the Tivoli User" by providing a forum where users can communicate meet and learn from each other's experience by offering both online and offline collaboration services all over the world.
Danyel: First, we gave the site a whole new fresh look to make it more modern and contemporary. We're using a new white and blue color scheme with much more white space and clear segmentation of sections of the site.
Second, we removed a lot of the text-intensive clutter around the site and focused on clear, repeatable actions most commonly used by the community in the left-hand section of the screen:
Third, we provided clear and consistent navigation in the top menu of the site so that users can navigate to key areas no matter where they are on the site.
Fourth, there are four new "Product Zones" designed to streamline the most up-to-date information on product-specific user group meetings, special events, trainings, demos, forums, and much more!
Fifth, new users to the site can:
Q: How can our blog readers help you in this endeavor?
Existing members can help us improve our services by taking the satisfaction surveys available on the site.
After an extended hiatus and focus on improving our community environment, we're ready to fire up the Tivoli and Service Management blogs again.
We're still working out some of the kinks with authentication--sometimes it appears as if your initial sign in doesn't work with the ibm.com authentication system--Web Identity. But you usually need to simply hit the login button again without changing your username and password information and things should work wonderfully. Let me know if you have any problems.
