Tivoli was expected last week to make a revitalised bid for the systems management market when it announced the availability of its next-generation Tivoli Enterprise management platform.
Tivoli Enterprise, formerly called Tsunami, is the next version of the Tivoli Management Environment (TME) 10 framework. It has been recoded from the ground up, officials said.
"This release is revolutionary and will put Tivoli in very good shape competitively," said Paul Mason, vice president of infrastructure research at International Data Corp.
Tivoli Enterprise will include several enhancements:
