While Hewlett-Packard is throwing down its service management gauntlet, rival Tivoli is attacking another management hot spot: electronic commerce.
Tivoli has announced Tivoli Cross-Site, a suite of management applications designed to make business-to-business electronic commerce across the Internet safer and more manageable.
Tivoli claims Tivoli Cross-Site will enable businesses to manage the delivery and deployment of new applications to independent business partners over the Internet.
The suite includes three applications: Tivoli Cross-Site for Availability, Tivoli Cross-Site for Security and Tivoli Cross-Site for Deployment.
Tivoli Cross-Site for Availability lets businesses manage the end-to-end performance of Internet-based electronic commerce applications unilaterally or in conjunction with business partners.
