IBM is expanding its Tivoli management software so it can control e-commerce software such as Web servers and application servers, the company plans to announce Friday.
Tivoli is used to monitor and manage everything from cash registers to mainframes to databases. The new Web Component Manager software lets administrators monitor programs such as IBM's WebSphere e-commerce server software, finding out when something is wrong so it can be fixed. The new product will be available Friday. --Stephen Shankland, Special to ZDNet News
