Message From Zenoss CEO
Zenoss participated in and sponsored the first ever Enterprise Systems Management BarCamp in Austin on January 18th. Zenoss discussed how we could improve systems management with other industry leaders including Alterpoint, BMC, and IBM. We also got to speak with users to better understand what you need to more effectively monitor your network. Our CTO Erik Dahl also led a discussion on open agents. See what others had to say about BarCampESM:

- O’Reilly’s Andy Oram: ESM: Design Patterns and Agents
- Socialized Software: BarCampESM
- John M. Willis: Monitoring, the good, the bad, and the ugly
