Hello World. This poor under used blog needs some love. There is much to talk about. Starting at the beginning of this year IBM create a new software division for most of it’s security software. So I no longer work for Tivoli, but am a proud member of IBM Security Systems. Yes, unfortunately we are using the same ISS acronym. That will make things confusing, so I will do my best to clear things up. ISS is now a full fledged software brand, just like Tivoli, Websphere, Rational and Lotus.
What will I be doing in the new org? I am still in services, meaning that I still am focusing on making out products work for our customers. I’m not in sales, but occasionally help our sales teams. I not in development, but give lots of feedback to our product managers. I build solutions for our customers, and look to build tools and documentation to make it easier and more productive to implement IBM Security Systems.
We have a broad portfolio in the ISS division now, but I will be focusing on Security Intelligence and Data Protection. In particular I am focusing on the recent Q1 Labs acquisition and ensuring their success under big blue. I will be writing future posts about TSOM, TSIEM and QRadar, so stay tuned. I just needed to get this “first post” out the way.
