History of Tivoli brand[edit] Tivoli Systems Inc. was founded in Austin, Texas
Texas
in 1989 by Bob Fabbio[3] and quickly joined by Peter Valdes, Todd Smith and Steve Marcie; all were former IBM
IBM
employees.[4] Bob Fabbio in an interview indicated the purpose was to provide systems management on systems from a diverse set of vendors while at IBM
IBM
he had been directed to focus on IBM
IBM
products only.[5] As an independent software vendor Tivoli Systems developed and sold Tivoli Management Environment (TME) "systems management" software and services. The then CEO Frank Moss saw the company listed on NASDAQ
NASDAQ
on March, 1995[6] and the subsequent merger into IBM
IBM
in 1996.[7] Tivoli Software
Software
became a brand within IBM's Cloud & Smarter Infrastructure division.[8] IBM
IBM
initially grew the software portfolio under the Tivoli brand through development and acquisition.[9][4] There are some thoughts this may have resulted in the brand containing a large set of overlapping and marginal products[4] In April 2013 IBM renamed "Tivoli Software" Division to "Cloud & Smarter Infrastructure".[1] IBM
IBM
seems to continue to move from the Tivoli brand also as exampled by the explicit rebranding of Tivoli Storage Manager to IBM
IBM
Spectrum Protect™[10] and the renaming of IBM
IBM
Tivoli Workload Scheduler to IBM
IBM
Workload Scheduler as of release 9.3.[11] Market position[edit] According to IT analyst research firm Gartner, Inc., IBM
IBM
in 2012 owned the largest share of the "IT Operations Management" software market, with an 18% market share.[12] IBM
IBM
was also the leading provider of Enterprise Asset Management software, for the 7th consecutive year, according to ARC Advisory Group, a research analyst firm for industry and infrastructure.[13] Service management segments[edit] Service management segments related to the Tivoli brand software and services included the following:

Tivoli Management Framework[edit] Tivoli Management Framework (TMF) is a CORBA-based systems and network management framework. It allows administrators to manage large numbers of remote locations or devices. In the early years of TMF's lifecycle it was a pre-requisite to several other key Tivoli components. With IBM's adoption and promotion of other non-TMF based products, such as Micromuse Netcool Omnibus in February 2006[14] and the increasing general acceptance of Secure Shell in preference to CORBA
CORBA
meant TMF entered the latter stages of product lifecycle. The final independent release version of TMF was 4.1.1 with release 4.3.1 supplied with and to Tivoli Configuration Manager 4.3.1 in 2008.[15][16] Tivoli Service Request Manager[edit] Tivoli Service Request Manager manages configuration items (CI) and critical assets. It was previously known as Maximo Service Desk.[17] Netcool/OMNIbus[edit] IBM
IBM
Tivoli Netcool/OMNIbus operations management software consolidates complex IT and network operation management tasks as the primary event management platform within the suite. [18] References[edit]
