Hewlett-Packard's (HP)Professional Services Organisation is now reselling and supporting Bea Systems' Tuxedo transaction processing (TP) monitor and related middleware to try and assemble a portfolio of software that will enable it to play in the electronic commerce market.
The move follows the signing of a similar deal with IBM last week for its CICS TP monitor and related software and reflects HP's attempt to position itself as a systems integraton and services company rather than a systems and software house.
HP also plans to integrate Tuxedo, Bea's Jolt Internet middleware and Connect connectivity software for hooking up Tuxedo to third party applications with its own Praesidium security offerings and MC/ServiceGuard clustering products.
