David Whiteman

This short talk will present an overview of the COSMOS project. We will focus on how industry leaders such as CA, Cisco, Compuware, IBM, and SAS are openly collaborating on the implementation of emerging industry standards to construct an exemplary systems management toolkit and framework. In particular, we will illustrate how COSMOS leverages the emerging CMDBf, SML, and SDD standards and the Eclipse plug-in architecture to provide an extensible and scalable platform for the modeling, collection, and visualization of distributed resource data. This session will provide a brief overview of the goals, functionality and project roadmap leading up to the planned release 1.0 in June 2008.

David Whiteman is a Staff Software Engineer in IBM Tivoli's Autonomic Computing group focusing on open standards and open source. He is currently a committer on the Eclipse COSMOS project, which focuses on standards-based systems management, contributing heavily to the Resource Modeling subproject that provides a framework and tools for the SML and CMDBf emerging standards. Mr. Whiteman also has 11 years of Java UI development experience, building UIs for thin client distributed applications, developing implementations of AWT and SWT for embedded devices, and participating in the expert groups for JSRs 216 and 217.
