ISLANDIA, N.Y., Jan. 31 /PRNewswire/ -- Computer Associates International, Inc. (CA) today announced Unicenter TNG Performance Neugents for Linux, further extending the scope of Unicenter TNG's unique predictive management capabilities to ensure higher eBusiness performance, availability, and service levels across the enterprise. The announcement was made at LinuxWorld in New York City. Unicenter TNG Performance Neugents for Linux utilize CA's patented Neugents technology to automatically detect atypical behaviors or conditions on monitored Linux systems -- regardless of how subtle those anomalies may be. eBusiness managers can now predict and discover potential problems on Linux servers before services are adversely affected. This unique predictive capability enables organizations to achieve the highest levels of service and customer satisfaction within their eBusiness environments. "With business applications becoming increasingly complex and mission- critical in nature, it is essential for IT staffs to proactively predict and address performance and availability problems before any downtime occurs," said Audrey Rasmussen, vice president, Enterprise Management Associates, a Boulder, Colo. based analyst firm specializing in next generation business infrastructure management. "Computer Associates has recognized this challenge and has implemented an innovative strategy to address these issues in the Linux environment. By extending its Unicenter TNG performance Neugents capabilities beyond traditional platforms, along with other management solutions, Computer Associates is supporting their commitments toward the Open Source Community." Unicenter TNG Performance Neugents enable intelligent management of the eBusiness infrastructure by learning and adapting to individual system dynamics and changes that occur over time. As IT environments continue to expand in size and complexity, Unicenter TNG Performance Neugents can substantially simplify operations and reduce overhead through problem prediction and precise root-cause analysis. Anniston Army Depot is designated the Enterprise Management Center of Excellence for the Army and other defense agencies. The most important business need at Anniston is to keep the mission critical information up and running at maximum availability. Prior to Unicenter TNG, Anniston experienced a lower than expected problem resolution rate and needed to increase the level of support to their customers. Unicenter TNG and Performance Neugents gave the depot the solution it was seeking. Knowing when, where, why and how potential problems are likely to occur enables depot specialists to raise service levels and meet customer demands. Unicenter TNG provides a single point of control for managing all of the resources critical to eBusiness processes including systems, networks, applications, databases, the Internet, non-IT devices and more. Unicenter TNG Performance Neugents deliver unique predictive capabilities that further enhance manageability and ensure unparalleled service for eBusiness. "Our customers are telling us that Linux is an integral part of their eBusiness strategy," said John Pincomb, CA divisional vice president, marketing. "They are demanding smart solutions that ensure availability and performance around the clock, no matter what. Performance Neugents can help them achieve that goal with minimal demand on staff resources." Available under CA's new simplified licensing model, the latest release of Unicenter TNG Performance Neugents also supports a wide range of eBusiness platforms including Windows NT, UNIX, and OS/390.
