RedMonk Radio #42: Enterprise Systems Management with John Willis

A few weeks ago, I talked with John Willis about enterprise systems management. I found the conversation quite fun and interesting. John Willis is an independent, Tivoli consultant, so he’s got all sorts of good, frank content.

We talk about his “What Does Bob Want?” story which discusses getting the ESM software to tell the CIO what he actually want to know: that the IT is working, end-to-end. Also, we talk about SOA and ESM, and then open source in the IT management space. As ever, John is particularly into Puppet.
