Using Agile Service Manager 1.1.8 (TOD68G-SPVC)

Overview

IBM Agile Service Manager provides operations teams with complete up-to-date visibility and control over dynamic infrastructure and services. Agile Service Manager lets you query a specific networked resource, and then presents a configurable topology view of it within its ecosystem of relationships and states, both in real time and within a definable time window. 

 

Agile Service Manager delivers a working understanding of what you have in your environment, how the environment relates to itself, and how the environment has changed over time.

 

In this three-day course, you learn how to load and view topology data, customize the user interface, integrate Agile Service Manager with IBM Watson AIOps Event Manager, interact with the API, and merge topologies from different sources.
