Supporting Linux in the Enterprise



Jul 20, 2001, 01:00 ET from Computer Associates International, Inc.

    ISLANDIA, N.Y., July 20 /PRNewswire/ -- Computer Associates International,
 Inc. (CA), the world leader in eBusiness management solutions, announced today
 that Unicenter earned an Editors' Choice award from CNET Linux Magazine.  CA's
 infrastructure management solution received a nine out of a possible 10 rating
 in a recent test for Linux Software Utilities.  The CNET award follows CA's
 receipt of the "Best Systems Integration Solution" award at February's
 LinuxWorld in New York City.  These two wins demonstrate the global acceptance
 of Unicenter as the management solution for Linux in the enterprise.
     "The CNET Editors' Choice award proves once again that CA's commitment to
 the Linux community is very real," said Jack Kudale, business manager,
 Unicenter, CA.  "We will continue to develop solutions that enable our
 customers to incorporate Linux-based solutions into their eBusiness computing
 environments with true enterprise-class manageability and security."
     Unicenter is designed to reduce IT operational costs and to deliver
 accelerated return on investment by providing a wide range of eBusiness
 infrastructure management functions in a heterogeneous environment that
 includes new and emerging platforms and technologies.  Unicenter optimizes
 Linux-based web operations through Service Level Management, Web Server
 Management, and Performance Management solutions.
     "Think of the universe, everything within it, and all of the ways in which
 those things interact.  Now think about managing all of that," writes Bill
 O'Brien in his review.  "That's the ambitious task that Computer Associates
 has set for Unicenter within the somewhat smaller universe of your enterprise
 network."  O'Brien is the author of six books and nearly 1,500 articles about
 computer hardware and operating systems and is a regular contributor to CNET's
 Linux Center.
     An Editors' Choice award signifies a product that is the best-of-breed in
 its category, and the standard by which all other similar products will be
 judged.  It's not enough, however, that a product be better than the
 competition.  An Editors' Choice product must also change the competitive
 landscape of its market, whether through innovative features, exceptional
 value, ease of use, or a demonstrable boost to users' productivity.
     "CNET Editors' Choice awards recognize computing products such as
 Unicenter, that deliver the highest quality, design, and service to users.
 Products bearing the CNET Editors' Choice graphic have been rigorously tested
 and carefully evaluated by our panel of expert editors and writers.  We are
 committed to making the CNET Editors' Choice seal the hallmark of good product
 design, performance, quality, and value," said O'Brien.

 and mainframe, and continues to develop innovative new solutions to optimize
 eBusiness operations.
