Hewlett-Packard (HP) will announce that it is integrating the Network Node Manager (NNM) element of its Openview network management software with firewalls from Lucent Technologies, Cisco and Secure Computing later this week in Barcelona.
This summer, the supplier announced similar integration deals with Raptor Systems, Trusted Information Services and Checkpoint Systems, but it now also plans to integrate the Windows NT version of NNM with Cisco's Web-based Resource Manager tool.
HP will also formalise its programme of creating specific Smart Plug-Ins for managing such applications as SAP's R/3 and the Oracle database. The Plug-Ins provide out-of-the-box policy management and can draw on other Openview management functions.
The firm is working on plug-ins for Baan, Microsoft's family of Internet servers for Internet providers, SQL Server and Exchange, Netscape's Suitespot Internet servers, and Remedy's Action Request System helpdesk software. These are scheduled to ship in the first half of next year.
