This course was produced over 2 months with full-time effort towards design, testing and verification of advanced automation scripts which can be used independently or plugged into any enterprise orchestration management software. To engage a leading IBM WAS consultant to build these scripts, would cost over £100,000 pounds and likely to take several months to write, and test. I have leveraged my vast industry experience to give you another valuable course. Once purchased, you can augment these scripts as you please into your enterprise management processes, saving you time and money. I would recommend that you consider the cost it would take you to produce a similar set of scripts, and you will see that the price of the course (essentially the scripts with examples) is well worth it, even if it is just to get hold of these scripts and include them in your administration-tools arsenal.
