This page contains information about Tivoli Application Management solutions.


The IBM Tivoli Composite Application Management solution helps you increase the performance and availability of business-critical applications, including portal and SOA-based technologies. Proactive, real-time problem resolution is uniquely performed utilizing a portal-based end-to-end view of services, transactions and associated resources across platforms and subsystems, and launch in context between transactions and resources. The Tivoli solution can reduce IT lifecycle costs across operations, support and development by directly linking operations and development.

Although most businesses have traditional monitoring tools to manage individual resources at a high level, many lack an integrated solution to automatically monitor, analyze and resolve problems at the service, transaction, application and resource levels. As a result, operations and development may take a long time to identify, isolate and fix composite application problems.
