IBM's Tivoli unit has launched its Applications Policy Manager (APM) to enable users to manage applications and their underlying infrastructure in real time and its Database Management family for managing cross-platform database environments.
APM is the latest member of the Tivoli Management Environment (TME) Global Enterprise Manager (GEM) and enables systems administrators to view IT resources dynamically.
It is shipping now and starts at $250,000. Tivoli has also completed its Scheduling application programming interface (API), which can be used by third party workload management application suppliers to ease the integration with Tivoli's systems management packages.
Its Application Management specification has also been accepted for review by the Desktop Management Task Force for incorporation into the application management element of the Common Information Model.
