Computer Associates' drive to make its Unicenter systems management software the de facto choice for enterprise customers will get a boost today when the firm outlines a new alliance with Intel at the Comdex show in Las Vegas.
CA's new Wake PC technology will allow systems administrators to use the central console of Unicenter TNG to boot up and access Intel's Wired for Management-compliant hardware. This will enable them to activate 'sleeping' PCs throughout an enterprise remotely.
The company also intends to announce the ability to remotely configure any Desktop Management Interface (DMI)-compliant desktops or server; a DMI browser to view asset information and receive alarms.
The new products will be part of a wider Managed PC initiative which CA is spearheading with 12 desktop companies, including Acer and Intel. The initiative is intended to establish a common approach to managing desktops across an enterprise from a central point. CA intends that common approach to be Unicenter TNG.
