As you navigate the Web, youll notice that Tivoli engages in the blogosphere in a variety
of ways, for example, group blogs and individual blogs. I want to provide a
little perspective on the differences here.
This is the official Tivoli blog, where the Tivoli Web and Communications team and
guest bloggers, share news, statements, and perspectives from the IBM Tivoli
organization. However, this blog also serves as a multi-directional channel for
listening to our public stakeholders, exploring new ideas, collaborating on
solutions, and sharing links or resources between community members. Often, we
will discuss various perspectives or pose specific questions for public
feedback. And, we encourage the extended sharing of questions, answers, links
and resources in our IBM
The IBM Service Management
blog is similar to the Tivoli
blog in nature; however, it focuses on the discipline of Service Management as
a field of practice with its own trends, scenarios, standards and regulations.
It also looks beyond Tivoli
to other IBM offerings, IBM Business Partners, and analyst reports. Like Tivoli, we encourage the extended sharing of questions,
answers, links and resources in our IBM Service Management
community blog centers on the Pulse
conference and those who have attended or are planning on attending the
conference. It provides insight and gathers feedback on conference plans and
activities and serves as an extension of conversations taking place at and
around the conference. We also host the Pulse community for
extended social networking and sharing of questions, resources, feedback,
conversations, and stories.
For in-depth topics and discussions, we rely on our
subject matter experts (SMEs) who have their own individual blogs with their
own individual purposes of engaging the public. A few of these experts include:
McClure, a Senior Managing Consultant for IBM Tivoli Lab Services, specializes
in Business and IT Service Management. His
blog provides thoughts around business, service and technology operations
and management with special emphasis on Business Service Management (BSM) and
how practitioners can be successful implementing a BSM strategy within their
Powers works in the IBM Tivoli Technology Office on IT governance related
projects. He blogs on topics
related to IT governance, risk management, and compliance and is especially
interested in how to apply these concepts to IT service management.
Tony Pearson, author of Inside
System Storage, is a senior storage consultant for IBM System Storage. His
blog serves as an open exchange of ideas relating to storage and storage
networking hardware, software and services.
Winman, specialize in Tivoli communities, social media, and Web 2.0. My blog focuses on heroes,
voices, and stories that make the Tivoli network such a great community.
In addition to our own SMEs, several
IBM Business Partners, outside of IBM auspices, blog about Tivoli or Service Management topics. For
