Computer Associates Ships Beta of Unicenter TND

Computer Associates has started shipping Unicenter TND (The Next Dimension) to beta testers. TND is the latest version of the company's enterprise management solution, previously dubbed TNG, The Next Generation.

The company says TND lets businesses manage processes and transactions at every point within their network environment. The Unicenter TND management solution, built on Jasmine ii, promises companies the ability to predict when trouble may strike their network, as well as manage virtually any networkable device.

But TND, the company said, will go beyond simply monitoring and reporting the quality of network service. It actively manages quality of service, allowing administrators to prioritize network traffic by the type of traffic. Service-level agreements between IT and their company's internal supply-chain, and their customers, Internet service providers, and application service providers can also be monitored.

"All of this leads to a more improved way of getting a higher quality of service throughout every aspect of the enterprise. And E-business always has to be secure, trusted, available, and high performing. TND will get them there," said Carl Hartman, VP for CA.

One analyst says the upgrade provides a significant improvement over its predecessor. "TNG was more flash than substance before. Now predictive analysis will be a hands-on ability for end users," says Michael Dortch, senior research analyst for Robert Frances Group. "With TND users can combine historic data with current operational data to tell when something is going to break. This is as close to real time as anything out there."

CA would not disclose pricing for TND or estimate when the product would move out of beta.
