Progress Software has released Progress Fathom for Management, software to enhance the availability and manageability of its OpenEdge network management platform.
The latest release provides full remote management functionality which has long been offered by competitors such as Hewlett-Packard (HP) OpenView, Computer Associates (CA) Unicenter and Tivoli.
Fathom provides a browser-based console for centralised application management, addressing a major deficiency in OpenEdge. Angelo Traconna, Fathom product manager, admitted that this omission had caused users to purchase rival products.
Other Fathom features include automatic alert notification to facilitate proactive correction of faults, trend analysis on captured information to assist capacity planning, and rapid installation through wizards that guides the user through the process.
The software is expected to ease the configuring, diagnosing, monitoring and managing of Progress-based applications. Progress users should realise cost savings through failure avoidance and improved management using Fathom.
Fathom will be sold primarily into Progress's own user base that comprises some 40,000 users, including 70 of the Fortune 100 companies and 2000 independent software vendors (ISVs).
Traconna said: "Fathom can cater for any architecture or business model that can benefit from remote application management."
