This MaxFacts Guidebook describes the three components of IBM's new On Demand business model so IT professionals can see the big picture and understand how their businesses can benefit.

Provided is an overview of key building-block product lines such as IBM eServer systems, TotalStorage, Infoprint printers, WebSphere, DB2, Tivoli, and Linux. The methods for learning how autonomic computing can help infrastructures automatically sense and respond to changing conditions so that things keep running smoothly are demonstrated, and virtualization techniques that can be leveraged to improve utilization and reduce costs are discussed in detail.

Reviews - What do customers think about IBM On Demand Technology Made Simple: Understanding the IBM On Demand Business Strategy and Underlying Products (MaxFacts Guidebook series)?

an independent big picture  Aug 12, 2005
IBM's On Demand is a complex suite of technologies, hardware and software. IBM has put out a copious amount of documentation on each, and on how they fit together. Yet the sheer amount of this can be daunting to assimilate. Which is where this book comes in.

Hoskins provides an overview that is readily understandable. Plus he appears to be independent of IBM, which gives him more leeway to make objective assessments.

I'm reasonably familiar with the WebSphere, DB2 and linux that he describes. In these alone, IBM has invested massive resources. His description of these 3 squares with my knowledge of them.

The overall attractiveness of On Demand is still unresolved by the book. IBM and others are promoting this utility-type computing, to only limited success thus far. You should also note that On Demand is a marketing term by IBM that seems more intuitive than autonomic computing or utility computing.
