A new article has been published on developerWorks that assists users with configuring IBM Maximo for Tivoli Directory Integrator. Here is an excerpt from the introduction:
IBM® Tivoli® Directory Integrator enables synchronization, transformation and migration of generic and identity data across heterogeneous systems, helping organizations maintain consistent and trusted data across multiple resources.
Tivoli Asset Management for IT (TAMIT) solutions deliver increased visibility, control and automation to support efficient, cost-effective IT asset management throughout the asset life cycle, including planning, acquisition, management and disposition of software, hardware, and related licenses.
The Tivoli Process Automation Engine (TPAE), also known as Base Services, is a collection of core Java classes and is used as a base to build Java applications. The Integration Framework, a TPAE feature contains standard integration objects (Object Structures and interfaces) and outbound/inbound objects. The TPAE IF Connector connects Tivoli Directory Integrator to the TPAE Integration Framework to exchange information.
The TPAE IF Connector reads from and writes to the Integration Framework. It supports Maximo® Business Object (MBO) and is processed through an integration object. This Connector uses the MBO layer for validating imported or exported objects.
This article describes how TDI and TAMIT are integrated via newly added connectors in TDI i.e Simple TPAE IF Connector and TPAE IF Connector. Click here to read the entire article.
