IBM's Flex System Manager for Android, BlackBerry and iOS was formally made available at the end of 2012. The application allows users to easily monitor their IBM Flex System (a next generation infrastructure integrating compute, storage, and networking resources), providing access to health problems, event history, real time views of front and rear systems, and all hardware components installed in a chassis.
Kevin Schultz, Mark Molander, and Carlos Santana will present the application as well as the iterative path to creating it and getting it out the door.
