By using the Migration Manager, you can migrate configuration content from one production environment to another. The typical use is to migrate configuration content from a development environment to a test environment and then on to production for the Tivoli® process automation engine and its applications, such as IBM® SmartCloud® Control Desk. The goal of migration is to ensure that your production environment fully meets the needs of your users. This IBM Redbooks® publication is an update of the existing book Migration Use Cases with the Migration Manager, SG24-7906 and covers the most common migration use cases with the Migration Manager, including the capabilities that were introduced with Tivoli's process automation engine V7.5.

What do you know about your data? And how do you know what you know about your data? Information governance initiatives address corporate concerns about the quality and reliability of information in planning and decision-making processes. Metadata management refers to the tools, processes, and environment that are provided so that organizations can reliably and easily share, locate, and retrieve information from these systems. Enterprise-wide information integration projects integrate data from these systems to one location to generate required reports and analysis. During this type of implementation process, metadata management must be provided along each step to ensure that the final reports and analysis are from the right data sources, are complete, and have quality. This IBM® Redbooks® publication introduces the information governance initiative and highlights the immediate needs for metadata management. It explains how IBM InfoSphereTM Information Server provides a single unified platform and a collection of product modules and components so that organizations can understand, cleanse, transform, and deliver trustworthy and context-rich information.
