Tivoli Systems/Marimba extend software solutions

FRAMINGHAM - Three systems and network management vendors have announced partnerships and product extensions to embrace some emerging technologies becoming more popular in enterprise networks.

As expected, Tivoli Systems and Marimba have announced a reseller agreement and "strategic relationship" to allow companies to distribute and manage software beyond firewalls.

The companies plan to combine Marimba's Castanet with Tivoli's TME 10 Software Distribution and TME 10 Inventory application management packages to distribute software both inside and outside company firewalls to Internet-connected users. Castanet distributes software over the Internet.

Tivoli will market, sell and support Castanet. Marimba will work with Tivoli to extend Tivoli's Application Management Specification to include definitions for software components for Internet and intranet applications.

These extensions will be based on the recently proposed Open Software Description (OSD) specification. OSD provides a data format or vocabulary to describe software components, their versions, their underlying structure and their relationships to other components.
