What is most valuable?

TBSM is a rock, and our house would have crumbled without it. The most valuable feature for my team is the ability to taken event feeds from all/any source tool (we leverage 20+) and put them in a single pane of glass. Since we also have an... more»

How has it helped my organization?

Being able to manage the entire flow of events firing on alerts set in so many source consoles, let my team correlate seemingly disparate break points and jump out to the source tool for trending and issue isolation.

What needs improvement?

TBSM is being replaced for our work by another Tivoli tool - DASH. This replacement will address the biggest area of improvement. We need the most commonly leveraged real-time metric trends from the source tools in the same pane of glass as... more»

What do you think of IBM Tivoli NetCool OMNIbus?

Back in 2004 after years of going from strength to strength with Netcool, the world of computer infrastructure started to change radically rather than by slow evolution. With the introduction of things like Virtualisation, B2B gateways (into other companies) etc we were seeing a massive increase in challenges like complexity, dynamic constant change in the infrastructure and lack of viability into the infrastructures of our partners, who provided key elements of our customers applications. The result of all these revolutionary changes in our infrastructure was that Netcool itself started becoming less effective, and hence we started to see a swing back to reactive management at the expense of proactive. I believe we need to see far more radical innovation in this area.

I see the biggest features of EM7 is that it is can cover a lot of different products very quickly and without a ton of effort. In my book, the second biggest feature is the company behind the product, they generally respond quickly to issues... more»

How has it helped my organization?

We can approach many different solutions without a ton of lift on developers which helps us a great deal. We still need to put time into tuning what is in the defaults, but we can get up and running in short order using EM7.

What needs improvement?

Reporting is still a gigantic pain point, we invest a lot of cycles in manufacturing reports off-board -#notfun. While EM7 covers a lot of ground quickly and is capable of consuming enormous amounts of event and performance data, EM7... more»

It helped us move from a company that looks at its network from a resource perspective to a service perspective.

It helps me on a day-to-day basis. We used to have our services monitored by two isolated islands. One island was from the IT perspective, with servers and operating systems. The other island looked at the service from a resource perspective,... more»

What needs improvement?

I see room for improvement in the licensing scheme area. It's getting more complex day by day. Every day there is a new rule, so it's hard for me to plan every year and determine what I need to buy. I have to find out what I need to merge... more»
