In the eternal search for optimized systems management, organizations are adopting
new technologies almost as fast as they are being introduced by the vendor community.
This is contributing to spiraling complexity of enterprise systems.
“When we look at how organizations are attempting to reduce costs and build agility
into operations, several initiatives are prevalent that must drive change in systems
management thinking,” explains Pierre Coyne, Service Management Strategy and Planning
Manager for MNJ’s Tivoli software division.
One of the first initiatives revolves around Service Oriented Architectures. “SOA
allows for repurposing and sharing of resources across business services and processes.
This explains why it is being adopted so quickly across industries to improve agility
and reusability,” says Coyne.
