The acquisition of Micromuse by IBM marks a major milestone in the
growth of IBM Tivoli software because it significantly strengthens our
service management software portfolio for enterprises of any size. The
Tivoli and Netcool product integration white paper for enterprises, “Netcool + Tivoli: Delivering Service Management Innovation” is now available.
The primary audience of “Netcool + Tivoli: Delivering Service
Management Innovation” is Netcool and Tivoli enterprise customers.
Service provider customers will be addressed in a separate paper. This
paper will help clarify many questions your customers and prospects may
have about Netcool and Tivoli service management product portfolio
integration. The paper discusses the efforts in progress to deliver an
enhanced end-to-end IBM Service Management portfolio within each major
enterprise operational management category that contains Netcool
products. The white paper also addresses:
- Benefits associated with the combined Netcool and Tivoli portfolio.
