Tivoli Software


Tivoli Software

Tivoli Software is the systems management brand of the IBM Software Group. IBM purchased Austin-based Tivoli Systems, Inc. on March 4, 1996 [ [http://www-03.ibm.com/ibm/history/history/decade_1990.html IBM Archives: 1990s] ] and allowed existing executive management to operate Tivoli as a wholly owned subsidiary in the Software Group. In addition to Tivoli, this IBM division includes WebSphere, Information Management, Lotus Software and Rational Software. All are now part of IBM Software Group.

In August 2006, IBM acquired MRO Software, intending to add them to the Tivoli division. In March 2008, IBM added Ecentuate to Tivoli [ [http://www.theregister.co.uk/2008/03/12/ibm_buys_eccentuate/ IBM buys Encentuate to accumulate | The Register ] ] .

Tivoli's early marketing taglines included "Making Client/Server Work" and "The Power To Manage. Anything. Anywhere." The current slogan is "Intelligent management software for the on demand world." [ [http://www.ibm.com/legal/copytrade.shtml IBM Copyright and trademark information] ] Their product lines cover security, storage, monitoring and configuration. Some of Tivoli's best-known products are Tivoli Configuration and Change Management Database, Netcool/OMNIbus, Tivoli Enterprise Console (TEC), Tivoli Monitoring (ITM, from v6.1 based on IBM OMEGAMON), IBM Tivoli Network Manager (ITNM), Tivoli NetView, Tivoli Storage Manager (formerly IBM's Adstar Distributed Storage Manager), Tivoli Identity Manager (formerly Access360), Tivoli Federated Identity Manager, Tivoli Workload Scheduler (TWS) (formerly Unison Maestro), and Tivoli Access Manager.

Tivoli is divided into several pillars including: Service Management (which encompasses Change Management), Storage, Security, Performance Automation, Business Automation, and Network Management. Each pillar includes software specifically designed to improve IT processes.

The Storage portfolio contains Tivoli Storage Manager, which is one of the most widely used applications for backup, disaster recovery and information lifecycle management Fact|date=June 2008. It is notable for its use of a relational database that allows for progressive back up forever, reclamation and collocation functionalities.

Tivoli products are handled by IBM offices around the world. Major offices for Tivoli sales, development and support are located in Austin, TX; Raleigh, NC; San Jose, CA; Tucson, AZ; Atlanta, GA; Markham, ON; Greenville, SC; Staines, Great Britain; Kraków, Poland; Rome, Italy; and Pune, India.

Tivoli Systems, Inc. was founded on August 26, 1989 by Bob Fabbio, Todd Smith and Steven Marcie. (Some accounts include the company's fourth employee, Peter Valdes as a co-founder as well). It completed a public offering on March 10, 1995, opening at $14.00 per share and closing at $30.75 per share, one of the year's largest first day run ups.

The name Tivoli was commonly thought to have come from the reverse spelling - "I LOV IT" but this was not the case. The actual name was a temporary placeholder chosen by Todd Smith based on the system name of an AIX computer at IBM, Austin (which perhaps in turn was named after the historic amusement park in Copenhagen Denmark) chosen from a list read off to him. While intended to be temporary, the name was never changed.
