4 Day(s)


The IBM Sterling Control Center 5.1 Class is a 4-day, hands-on course that is based on real customer scenarios and provides a complete solution for each scenario.

  • IBM Sterling Connect:Direct

To monitor the servers, you will create Service Level Criteria, Rules and Actions that trigger Alerts all while touching nearly every menu item on the Sterling Control Center GUI.

Each lesson is based on an actual customer support case that is explored and solved during the class.
