In the February Global Tivoli User Community Newsletter, David Murray, a member of the community and a Global Tivoli User Group (GTUG) council member wrote a couple paragraphs as to why Pulse is so valuable to him and to others. As the Global Tivoli User Community manager I encourage you to take a few moments and read his personal words:
Pulse Is Coming!!!!!
Author: David Murray, President of the Carolinas TUG and member of the Global Tivoli User Group council
The end of February we have the chance to attend Pulse which is the IBM Tivoli technical conference. This is an exciting opportunity to meet and talk to the Tivoli leadership as well as find out the direction of the Tivoli portfolio. Pulse is also a great opportunity to see other companies present on their implementations of the Tivoli portfolio along with many discussions on best practices and gotchas. These presentations and discussions can be very helpful for any company that ventures into the Service Management arena. Seeing what other companies have done and the successes they have had can greatly influence the success of any company starting down this road. Another great opportunity is the networking of Service Management professionals that will be there. I have developed many friendships that I still stay in touch with over the many years. I believe that any company would find value in attending Pulse and all that goes on at the conference.
Following Pulse the GTUG council will have it's yearly face to face meeting. The GTUG council works all year long on behalf of the user groups worldwide. However this meeting is an intense two day meeting to help provide direction and resolve users concerns for basically the entire Tivoli portfolio. We discuss the requirements that we have undertaken as well as meeting with the Tivoli leadership to help make the Tivoli products more functional, productive, and profitable. I highly recommend that at your next user group meeting you reach out to your GTUG representative to get an update on the proceedings. If you have questions please don't hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org . We work hard to make Tivoli products better and as always appreciate your input.
Why are you attending Pulse? Please share your thoughts.
Meet me at Pulse as I'll be "hanging out" at the User Community Networking Area in the EXPO Solution Center. Come join other user community members as we network.
