This on-going initiative seeks to share the experience of Tivoli customers and Tivoli implementation experts, with other Tivoli customers to provide the information needed to succeed. Tivoli Customer Support is proud to bring this initiative to life!

Empower Customers & Business Partners to succeed with Tivoli
The Tivoli Field Guides will empower Tivoli customers and Business Partners by providing them with accurate and timely information on Tivoli products and on the business issues that impact their Enterprise Systems Management project. The Tivoli Field Guides are written by Tivoli Support and Services Engineers and by Tivoli Customers who have experience using Tivoli software in a production environment.
Leverage Internal & External Knowledge
Tivoli Customer Support and Services has a great deal of knowledge about how to use Tivoli products in a production environment, but not all of that knowledge is documented in product manuals or redbooks. We need to leverage the knowledge within Tivoli by documenting and sharing information on new products and find a way to leverage knowledge that is outside Tivoli. There are many Tivoli customers and Business Partners who are experts on specific products and who are using Tivoli software in unique ways. We would like to document that expertise and share it with other customers.
The Tivoli Field Guides will be discussed at a number of regional events. Please contact Tivoli support site feedback or ask your account manager if there is an event in your region.
