AUSTIN, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Sept. 22, 1998--Tivoli Systems Inc. today announced that its industry-leading enterprise management solution, Tivoli Enterprise, was selected for comprehensive management for the online information network at Lotusphere Berlin, one of Lotus Development Corporation's annual events focused on the Lotus ISV, consultant and customer communities. Tivoli products assure the continuous operation of the Lotusphere kiosk network that is utilized by more than 3,000 attendees during the show. The Lotusphere Online network gives the thousands of customers, press, and partner attendees the ability to access the Internet and utilize Lotus Domino's messaging capabilities.
"Like our customers, show attendees require high levels of service from their critical business systems," said Mike Turner, vice president, Applications Management Solutions, Tivoli Systems Inc. "Unlike nonintegrated point tools and utilities, Tivoli moves customers beyond simply monitoring components in isolation by providing a rich, multi-disciplined, holistic approach to applications management."
Lotusphere Online is a high transaction environment. High performance is at a premium, as the press file electronic stories around-the-clock, and attendees continually access Web information and email systems. The need to manage the multitude of components in this IT infrastructure is critical for success, and Tivoli Enterprise software assures that the thousands of Lotusphere attendees have access to the information they need, when they need it.
Tivoli Enterprise provides end-to-end management of the network, systems, databases, middleware and commercial applications, including Lotus Domino. Using the business system approach of Tivoli Global Enterprise Manager, the Lotusphere Online management staff is managing each component of Lotusphere Online and the critical relationships and dependencies between these components. By applying centralized event correlation, decision support, filtering and automation, Tivoli provides the power to spot inefficiencies in the complex enterprise environment and take corrective action before service is impacted.
Lotusphere Online will utilize Domino 4.6.1 running on Microsoft Windows NT 4.0. Tivoli Enterprise software products that will be utilized include Tivoli Manager for Domino, Tivoli Global Enterprise Manager (GEM), Tivoli Framework, Tivoli Distributed Monitoring, and Tivoli Enterprise Console, all running on Microsoft NT 4.0 servers and workstations.
