a picture can speak a thousand words, just how many can be captured
in videos and other multimedia? That's the question we asked within
IBM Tivoli while exploring new methods for delivering technical
information to customers.
And the answer at which we kept arriving was clear: multimedia can improve the time to value for our customers. In other words, by placing more emphasis on multimedia, we can reduce the time that it takes for customers to make Tivoli products useful. That's why, on March 31, we launched the Tivoli Media Gallery, the new centralized home for multimedia about Tivoli products.
Within the Tivoli Media Gallery, you can find many different multimedia types, ranging from quick 1-5 minute video tutorials that walk you through a complex task to demos that highlight specific product features. You can even find podcasts from Tivoli subject matter experts.
The Tivoli Media Gallery centralizes all of the multimedia that is hosted by the 25 external product and solution wikis available from Tivoli Wiki Central, and it also consolidates links to media that is hosted by other sites. This includes popular resources from within IBM and beyond:
- The IBM Education Assistant
- The Service Management Resource Center
Most of the multimedia that you find in the Tivoli Media Gallery is original content created by IBM professionals. This ranges from a ten minute demo on the Tivoli Service Availability and Performance Management solution to a one minute video tutorial on how to create a connection to the Tivoli Workload Scheduler engine.
Those are just two examples of the type of content that you might find in the Tivoli Media Gallery. To see more, visit the Tivoli Media Gallery at http://www.ibm.com/tivoli/media.
