http://ibm.com/tivoli/products/netcoo... What do an air conditioner running in winter, a bottleneck in an IT storage network, a truck that's overdue for its delivery, and an outage in a cellular communications tower have in common? Well, each of these things is a problem that needs to be located. Each of these things these things need to be resolved as quickly as possible. And each of these things can cause unnecessary expenses and lead to potential revenue loss. These are all true and all accurate, but today there's something else. On today's Smarter Planet the air conditioner, the truck, the cell tower, the storage network ... all likely include sophisticated instrumentation that's sending alerts to the central control center. As it's receiving this information an organization can detect problems faster, deploy online services, and dispatch repair technicians. The instrumentation of business and IT devices gives the enterprise powerful tools. Tools to help it gain new efficiencies, enhance effectiveness, and build customer satisfaction. And instrumentation can be even smarter - most event management and systems management platforms control only their specified area. For example communications, buildings, IT infrastructures and so on. Integrating the management of instrumented systems gives an organization a better view, a better holistic view, into the events and what's going on. Ultimately leading to Smarter Business. An event is an event, it could be an automatic notification of a component failure, a breach in a KPI, an achievement of a milestone, or could even be the manual entry of a potential problem such as severe weather. But regardless of the source, an event is a simple data packet that's shared easily among systems and it's used to enhance insight and processes. What's now needed is a solution that can collect and integrate events into a common view. For over fifteen years thousands of enterprises, governments, and service providers have all relied on Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus. They rely on this product to provide a view that we've been talking about, this single pane of glass view. The solution delivers insight and it supports management that creats a more integrated organization. Systems that are now instrumented but that that traditionally have not been part of IT, they can now be monitored, integrated with IT, integrated with each other, and consolidated for more effective and efficient operations. As a manager of managers, Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus offers hundreds of out-of-the-box integrations with existing tools. Virtually any smart device system or application that produces an electronic message or stores data can be instrumented using Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus.
