Software AG launches computer infrastructure management tool

Software AG, a provider of technology solutions to several federal and state agencies -- including the IRS, the Transportation Department and the Defense Logistics Agency -- has released a new infrastructure performance monitoring and predictive analysis tool.

Optimize for Infrastructure: Mainframe Edition consolidates input from monitoring products into a Web-based tool, enables information technology managers to create rules-based alerts and escalations, and supports predictive analysis, by which IT managers receive alerts not only when a fixed measure point is detected, but when a measurement deviates from normal.

Users will be able to monitor the performance of applications such as Adabas, Natural, EntireX and ApplinX from a single graphical viewpoint, identify system-wide problems early and analyze historical performance data to help predict future problems, as well as improve current system performance.

The solution also works with third-party tools based on Simple Network Management Protocol and, in addition to mainframe-based products, supports Software AG products that run on open system platforms, such as Unix, Linux and Windows.
