IBM Pulse Session Preview: Simplifying Administration and Maximizing Time-to-Value with SmartCloud Application Performance Management

In less than 2 weeks, I will be representing Prolifics at IBM Pulse 2013. I am looking forward to attending keynotes and sessions, speaking with industry experts and meeting attendees at Prolifics' booth, but I am most looking forward to presenting in two sessions focused on Application Performance Management.

I am hosting my first session at the start of the conference on Sunday, March 3. During this session, we will explore how our clients have achieved a quick time-to-value, and vastly simplified administration, when deploying IBM SmartCloud APM to monitor their middleware infrastructure by taking a unique approach. Attendees will learn how we simplified the often complex management aspects, and reduced implementation time, by leveraging the APM UI; eliminating the need for Managed System Lists (MSLs) by leveraging the little-known Situation Groups; and how they addressed the unique challenges of monitoring a pooled WebSphere Application Server infrastructure.

If you are interested in learning more about IBM SmartCloud, I have included a video by Prolifics' APM Practice Director and IBM Champion for Tivoli, Dan Kern. In this video, Dan discusses increasing the availability, visibility and virtualization of business-critical applications with IBM SmartCloud solutions.
