Tivoli to support mobile devices

Mobile devices will no longer be faceless wanderers on the corporate landscape if Austin-based Tivoli Systems Inc gets its way.

Recognizing the immense business popularity of the Palm handhelds, Tivoli is extending its network administration environment with the Tivoli Device Manager for the Palm Computing Platform.

“Palm devices are becoming full members of the IT infrastructure,” said Israel Gat, vice-president and general manager for Tivoli’s pervasive management business unit, during an announcement to customers, analysts and media in Rome – the location of one of Tivoli’s development facilities.
