My panel discussion was great “Monitoring – The good, the bad, and the Ugly.” From left to right: Eric Dahl (Co-Founder of Zenoss), Chip Holden (Architect at BMC), Tarus Balog (OpenNMS), Heath Newburn (IBM).
Whurley put me on badge detail (Yuk!)
Whurley has it all on tape, and we should see most of the presentations up in a few days.
I made a lot of new friends Saturday. However, Damond Edwards (in the picture with me) and Alex Honor of ControlTier have some interesting solutions and ideas on how to improve the development to operations gap.
Closing time. Heath started a great dialog at the end of the day long after the stage equipment was gone. We all talked in a circle about how to improve the monitoring to business service gap. I think the take away is to start following the OMC and to see where the conversation continues.
Overall, the attendance was lower than I expected, but this was a “can’t miss event.” Thanks to everyone, and I can’t wait ’till BarcampESMII. To see more pictures, go to
