This month, we have a variety of exciting opportunities open to IBM Tivoli Application Dependency Discovery Manager customers and Business Partners.
June 10: Video opportunity
On June 10, IBM is filming videos at Pulse Comes to You in Chicago. Would you like to share how TADDM helps you meet your business objectives in a short video? See examples of other customer videos on our IBM Service Management on YouTube.

June 17: Collaborative innovation
On June 17, the TADDM team will have its second TADDM Community Sensor day where TADDM developers, services, and best practices teams will spend a day with you to write new sensors for your environment. See the new TADDM sensor for discovering TADDM configuration data.

TADDM v7.2 beta program
IBM is looking for volunteers for the TADDM v7.2 beta program. Are you a customer or IBM Business Partner who would like to install the beta code in your test environment and provide feedback to development on the new release? IBM will provide you with beta code, draft documentation, education via web conferences on new features, and support via an on-line discussion forum.

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!

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.
