So my source at IBM was right except for the name, but she was close, in that IBM is going to be restructuring its storage software group under the Spectrum Storage moniker (Specter was close but Spectrum is a better title). ZDNet states that IBM will be investing $1 Billion in software defined storage which also means TSM is no longer under the Tivoli division....(Please, Please, Please let this be true!) In my opinion Tivoli was a horrible brand name and IBM should have never put ADSM under its umbrella.
Hopefully we will see some huge changes to TSM to make it more competitive. Some cloud connectivity would be a good start as more companies are implementing hybrid data-centers. I'd also like to see the new administration and reporting tool become a little more flexible with user defined reports, but we'll have to wait and see where this restructuring takes TSM or should we now call it Spectrum Storage Manager?
