As IT systems grow bigger and complex, they are comprised of many resources supplied by various vendors. Also, the Internet accelerates inter-enterprise business transactions and IT systems are connected each other. Consequently enterprise application systems are becoming a kind of large business process across multiple vendors. This transformation will also bring new type of complexity and difficulties to enterprise IT system management. Having awareness of these issues, IBM and Fujitsu have been collaborating on standardization effort for various areas of autonomic computing technologies. Autonomic computing and open standard interface are an effective approach to deal with these challenges. The initial areas of collaboration are common event format and interface for action to manage IT resources. hi this presentation, we show how an autonomic manager can solve these issues with using an open standard, WSDM (Web Service Distributed Management). We demonstrate the autonomic manager that behaves based on defined policy, continuously monitors systems, handles events and takes actions through WSDM interface in Multi-vendor IT Systems.
