Virtualization Podcast

Dana Gardner has posted the latest edition of his Briefings Direct SOA Insights podcast series, which is a discussion on virtualization and IT operations efficiency. Besides myself, we had a big group for this discussion including Jim Kobielus, Neil Macehiter, Dan Kusnetzky, Brad Shimmin, JP Morgenthal, and Tony Baer.

I find both of these topics very interesting and was glad to be part of the discussion. Operational management is an area ripe for improvement in many organizations, and it’s something that doesn’t get a lot of attention, because the impact to the business is largely ignored unless something breaks. Somehow, we need to move from a firefighting mode to a value-add mode where it’s more about the collection of data during normal operations to assist in the continued success of the business.
