IBM?s Tivoli unit is ramping up to take on arch-rival, Computer Associates, as they both vie for the number one slot in the systems management world.
The organisation is focusing its attention on applications management these days and plans to announce that it will support IBM?s Lotus Notes at the Lotussphere conference in Atlanta next week.
It is also working on supporting other third party applications and development tools such as Baan?s enterprise resource planning packages, adding these to its current partnerships with SAP and Powersoft.
But to strengthen its name in the market, Tivoli plans to introduce a branding scheme later this year. The aim is for software vendors and Vars to label their offerings 'Tivoli-Ready' to raise the company's profile and it also intends to ramp up its channel over the next three months, particularly in vertical markets and areas such as consultancy.
