At the BEA Users Conference here today, Tivoli Systems Inc. announced the Tivoli Manager for BEA System Inc.'s Tuxedo, an extension to its suite of management products for enterprise resource planning (ERP), middleware, and electronic business.
Tivoli Manager for BEA Tuxedo melds the management features of Tivoli's products with BEA's middleware solutions, company officials said. The product will allow companies to consolidate management information from multiple domains and server groups with information from other critical components of the distributed environment, such as failures in networks, systems, and databases, officials said.
"Because our customers depend on our middleware technology to run mission-critical business systems such as ERP and electronic-commerce solutions, it's essential they have the ability to manage the relationships between these applications to ensure optimum business performance," said Joe Menard, vice president of worldwide marketing at BEA.
The combination of BEA Tuxedo, BEA M3, BEA Manager, and Tivoli Enterprise gives customers a business-system management view of their systems, applications, and middleware, to ensure that their applications meet their business goals, Menard said.
Tivoli Manager for BEA Tuxedo will be available in the third quarter of 1999.
