IT Management Podcast #11 – Tivoli Training, Zenoss in Austin, System Center

Flight Home From JavaOne 2008

After a month off, John and I finally get back. I start by asking John about the world travel he’s been doing for Tivoli training, asking what he’s been seeing in the IT management user-base in Japan, Sydney, and then Warsaw (with a little jaunt around Paris).

As Tivoli Pule is coming up this week, I ask John what he’s looking forward to, but come to find out that he’s canceled going due to all that travel. Nonetheless, I ask him to give a quick re-cap of sort of the three brand coming together at the conference.

We move into some news-y items like Zenoss opening an office in Austin, and then we I go through a review of the news from Microsoft’s Management Conference. There, it’s primarily about the System Center Cross Platform beta and Microsoft’s virtualization efforts. John asks why it’s taking Microsoft so long, and I spin up 5 theories, of which John likes “they can’t screw it up” best.

Disclaimer: IBM, Zenoss, Microsoft, and BMC are clients. For other companies mentioned, see the RedMonk client list.
