IBM Software Newsletter

Just received the first 'IBM Software Newsletter' of this year. Here's the page were you can subscribe to it and read the latest issue. The newsletter describes itself as delivering "the insights you need to fuel innovation and remain competitive. Access analyst reports, executive briefs, success stories, money-saving special offers and more. See how companies and organizations like yours are meeting IT and business challenges and building real business value with IBM software".
There's (amongst others) an announcement for a Webcast : IBM WebSphere Portal Enable for z/OS powers your portal on System z. If you're interested in other webcasts (to come or past) you can find them by navigating via the tool bar on the left.
What actually drew my attention the most was the header What's behind the buys? See how your needs drive IBM software acquisitions. I wondered what was the status of the Consul take-over. I think it's a coincidence but just last wednesday there was a new press release on it describing that IBM Completes Acquisition of Consul. There's some more information to be found on the IBM software pages with a Q&A of how Consul products will be integrated into the IBM Tivoli software portfolio. I'm sure there's more to come on this subject, so I'll keep you informed.
