TIBCO ActiveMatrix to Provide Predictive Service Level Agreement Management for Service Oriented Architecture (SOA)
Apr 30, 2008 (08:04 AM EDT)


SAN FRANCISCO, April 30 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- TUCON(R) -- TIBCO Software Inc. today announced it has added new functionality to its ActiveMatrix(TM) Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) platform to automatically predict and fix IT service problems before they slow down access to mission critical business information. The new TIBCO ActiveMatrix(TM) Service Performance Manager capabilities mark the next wave of SOA infrastructure software technology from TIBCO by moving into the realm of predicatively taking action to solve technology problems before they occur.

As SOA continues to grow in use and sophistication with expanded use of individual services across the enterprise, customers have the unique challenge of understanding and managing the dependency and re-use of services that may have originally been built for one specific use and are now depended on by multiple services, creating potential weak points in the system.

ActiveMatrix(TM) Service Performance Manager understands business Service Level Agreements (SLA) and can monitor actual latency within context and time. It proactively predicts and solves problems by taking action to, for example, replicate an SOA service module or bring on-line additional servers to automatically head off slowdowns and service interruptions and sends a notice of the action taken.

This improves IT agility by enabling automatic and proactive, rather than reactive, response to the time-consuming task of tracking, finding and fixing glitches that naturally occur in today's heterogeneous IT systems. The new ActiveMatrix Service Performance Manager allows all kinds of businesses to proactively predict and completely manage their SOA's.

"Business and IT users need the agility to immediately scale resources to meet the ever increasing loads and demands of SOA services," said Matt Quinn, senior vice president of engineering and technology strategies at TIBCO. "The expanded functionality of ActiveMatrix Service Performance Manager allows companies to prevent IT problems automatically and behind the scenes, so they can focus on strategic projects that are valuable to their business."

Availability

The TIBCO ActiveMatrix(TM) Service Performance Management module is scheduled for release in calendar Q2 of 2008.
