Systems that install, heal, protect themselves and adapt to your needs —automaticallyUsing autonomic computing to reduce costs, improve services, and enhance agilityAutonomic components, architectures, standards, and development toolsPlanning for and implementing autonomic technologyCurrent autonomic solutions from IBM and other leading companiesReducing IT costs, improving service, and enabling the "on-demand" businessIT operations costs are accelerating, and today's increasingly complex architectures and distributed computing infrastructures only make matters worse.
The solution: autonomic computing. Autonomic systems are self-configuring, self-healing, self-optimizing, and self-protecting. They operate intelligently and dynamically, acting on your policies and service requirements. This book presents everything IT leaders and managers need to know to prepare for autonomic computing—and to begin leveraging its benefits. Coverage includes:How autonomic computing can reduce costs, improve service levels, enhance agility, simplify management, and help deliver the "on demand" businessThe key elements and attributes of autonomic computing systemsCurrent autonomic technologies from IBM and many other leading suppliersAutonomic computing architectures, open standards, development tools, and enablersImplementation considerations, including a new assessment methodologyThe future of autonomic computing: business opportunities and research challenges
