SYSTEMSMANAGED Ltd is a consultancy with 10 years experience in delivering custom solutions for IBM Tivoli customers around the globe. Our main areas of expertise are integrating IBM’s workload automation products with their monitoring and event management tools for the maximum return on investment. As an example, often customers will have bought several IBM products that don’t work well together out-of-the-box so it can take some time to have Tivoli Workload Scheduler send events to IBM Tivoli Monitoring, or directly to IBM Netcool/Omnibus. We can help with that.

Consultancy – we are subject matter experts in all aspects of Tivoli Workload Scheduler for distributed. If you are planning an upgrade of TWS from any version, we can advise on the safest and easiest way to get from version A to version B. We have proven experience in upgrading and migrating TWS at large, financial institutions where the availability and integrity of the TWS infrastructure is key. We can design and build Highly-Available Tivoli Dynamic Workload Console (TDWC) clusters and customize their look and feel so your users only see relevant menus and views. We can advise on all aspects of making your environment efficient, secure and “always-on”.

Training – our consultants have delivered IBM training courses on IBM Tivoli Workload Scheduler and IBM Tivoli Monitoring multiple times over the years. SYSTEMSMANAGED is offering a unique training opportunity which you won’t see anywhere else. You set the agenda!

  • Participate in live demonstrations instead of staring at slides all day.
  • We supply the kit. We will attend your site with machines configured and ready-to-go.
  • Set the agenda with topics you’ve always wanted answered. See and demo features you’ve always wanted to try out.
  • Install, build, break, fix and tear down TWS on our machines with no risk to your TWS environment.

Security Review – Have you ever had your Tivoli Workload Scheduled for Distributed (TWSd) environment reviewed by an impartial source? TWS is extremely powerful and many companies run with default settings on their agents which can be a security risk. External auditors never pick up on these elements as they don’t know the product but there are elements relating to TWS security that every company needs to address.

If you’re interested in the pros and cons of centralised security, enabling SSL communication in your network, or just want an unbiased, honest security review of your estate, we can do that. We will deliver a report which tells you where you are exposed, what you can fix and what you must fix.

Forewarned is forearmed.
