Today, December 15, 2009, IBM released Tivoli Monitoring for Energy Management Interim Feature v6.2.1.01. This release added new support for Siemens building management, which integrates the energy and environmental management solutions delivered by Siemens and IBM in order to provide a common solution that spans IT, data centers, buildings, and beyond. This release also added additional support for custom energy management agents and makes it even easier to integrate custom data into energy and environmental reports and portlets along with data from sources that Tivoli Monitoring for Energy Management collects with its native integrations.
These new files are generally available for use starting today, and we encourage customers to start using this new release right away. I'd also like to say thank you to our development team for all of their hard work in pushing this out the door before the end of 2009.

Going green. It’s about more than just reducing environmental impact. It’s about changing the way we do things in all areas of our lives. It’s about reducing energy and related costs…it’s about optimizing systems and resources…it’s about being accountable…and it’s about unlocking unexpected opportunities to create new value.
Making an impact can and should happen at several levels: as an individual, as an organization, across our cities and nation and on a grander scale, our planet. So you can see that going green stretches across just about every part of our lives. And as you can probably imagine (let’s come full circle here), the by-product of all of these elements and making positive changes can and will have a positive impact on the world in which we live…and more specifically, on our environment.
Check out the IBM Green & Beyond interactive tool to learn more about what you can do. The tool allows you to look at "green" from an individual, organizational, city/nation and planet perspective. There are a lot of good local ideas that would be easy to implement. It's worth a look....care to add your comments?
