RE: [nv-l] SNMPv3 - was "Enhancement Requests"
As an IBMer, let me just say that no
matter how valid nor how emphatically you state your case here, there is
no one in IBM who is allowed to answer your charges nor address your long-term
concerns on a public forum. That is company policy dating back decades.
Have you asked your IBM/Tivoli marketing
rep to get you a nondisclosure agreement so that you can talk directly
with NetView development and the executives who are their seniors?
Making your case here is not likely
to move them. There are people from other firms who do get IBM's
attention, but it typically takes a personal connection. I see notes
from senior executives at least monthly asking what we can do for this
customer or that one, with whom they have visited or spoken to. If
you want visibility, then I'm afraid that's what you will have to do. You
will need your own management's backing as well, since they will likely
be asked to participate in the discussions.
I hope this helps in some small way
towards getting your concerns addressed.
