TEMPE, AZ, October 8, 2001- iTRACS Corporation today announced it has joined the Solutions Partner Program at Computer Associates International, Inc. (NYSE: CA). With this partnership, iTRACS' physical network management solution iTRACS has been certified ca smart(tm) with Unicenter, CA's family of award-winning eBusiness infrastructure management solutions. Leveraging the powerful combination of these technologies, organizations will improve service levels and infrastructure utilization, while at the same time reduce security risks, resulting in increased return on IT investment.
Announced July 2001 at the CA World eBusiness Conference and Exposition, the ca smart certification is earned by partners who deliver eBusiness value and technical excellence through the integration of their solutions with CA technologies.
CA's Unicenter's eBusiness infrastructure management solutions ensure the health and performance of all aspects of the eBusiness infrastructure, including the systems, networks, databases, Web resources, applications and end-user devices.
The iTRACS flagship product enables IT administrators to monitor and maintain their physical infrastructure and network ports in real-time.
The integration of CA's Unicenter with iTRACS further enables the availability of critical network status information, which is vital for IT staff to resolve lost connections between devices and ports. From the Unicenter console, IT staff will receive immediate notifications of disconnected cables or port failures. This integration will also enable IT staff to remotely resolve issues from one central location, minimizing system downtime.
"CA is the global leader in infrastructure management solutions for every area of IT," said Pete Pela, Founder, Chairman and CTO at iTRACS Corporation. "Being ca smart certified is a strong validation of iTRACS' leading edge technology and we are excited to be part of this new program. The integration of our solutions will further enable companies to reduce costs, increase operating efficiencies and minimize the risk of downtime."
"To achieve their eBusiness service level objectives, IT managers require highly effective tools for monitoring their physical infrastructure and a global infrastructure management solution for placing that monitoring data in the context of their end-to-end eBusiness environment," said David Hochhauser, Vice President Marketing, Infrastructure Management, CA. "As a ca smart solution, iTRACS effectively fulfills the former part of this requirement while integrating with Unicenter to fulfill the latter as well."
