First, I'd like to thank John for his comment/question from our last blog. Let's plan to address that next time if that's ok. But for now, we have some important news to share with you. Today we are making available a new product that is part of our overall energy management solution portfolio. IBM Maximo Asset Management for Energy Optimization is the latest addition to a set of products designed to help you better manage your data center and facilities assets for energy efficiency.
MEO (as we will call it for short) works in conjunction with IBM Tivoli Monitoring for Energy Management to give you visibility in to thermal metrics within the data center. More specifically, ITM for Energy Management collects the data from the assets, and MEO uses that data to create a visual thermal map of the data center, so you can see both hot and cold spots within the facility and take the appropriate actions necessary to optimize assets for maximum energy efficiency. But it doesn't stop there. The solution allows you to remediate energy issues by generating service requests to take action on them. And it links energy metrics with asset information to manage energy as a part of service management processes, such as condition monitoring and preventive maintenance. We're pretty excited about the new product and hope that you will be too. Let us know what you think by leaving a comment or question here. And do check out the below links.
