IBM has formally announced that its main software products, including its DB2 database, CICS transaction processing monitor and MQSeries messaging software, are now available under Hewlett-Packard's HP/UX Unix operating system.
The two vendors will undertake joint marketing and IBM will attempt to woo HP resellers to sell its kit.
The move is the second stage of IBM Software's attempt to be seen as a viable ISV in its own right rather than being dependent on the company's hardware business. The first phase saw Big Blue going after the Microsoft Windows NT world, as reported by the Newswire last month, but this latest deal means that HP users deploying both Unix and NT can now implement IBM's software across both platforms.
