AdventNet Announces ManageEngineTM,First Standards-Based Manageability Solution For Business Processes, Applications And Middleware To Meet Business And CIO Needs.

Pleasanton, Calif., Feb 25 2002

AdventNet, Inc., the Management Solutions CompanyTM, today announced the release of the preview version of AdventNet ManageEngine 5.0, the first real time, standards-based manageability solution for business processes, applications and middleware infrastructure.

Enterprises have made substantial investments in a multitude of enterprise applications (as well as in J2EE and EAI middleware to develop and integrate those applications). As real time business activity monitoring becomes a strategic necessity, business and IT leadership seek real time visibility into the health and performance of the business processes that are enabled by the J2EE and EAI middleware infrastructure. As a result of this business demand, there is also a substantial market opportunity for ISVs (vendors of enterprise applications as well as J2EE and EAI middleware products) to facilitate rich enterprise-specific business process manageability.

AdventNet ManageEngine is the first solution to go beyond routine infrastructure management and generic application management to provide manageability for the specific needs of an enterprises business processes. It is also completely standards-based, with the management information being exposed using standard protocols such as SNMP, JMX and HTTP. A JMS based messaging and Web Services interface are also being developed. The general availability for the AdventNet ManageEngine is scheduled for mid-April, 2002.

"As a customer-focused company, AdventNet is always looking to offer products and solutions to add superior business value to our customers. With the AdventNet ManageEngine, our customers can get rapid manageability for their business process ecosystem, based on open standards. The AdventNet ManageEngine empowers developers to incorporate the manageability needs at the development stage itself, thereby eliminating the development-operations gap", said Sekar Vembu, President of the Enterprise Solutions Business Unit at AdventNet.

"AdventNet has seen great market reception for the AdventNet Agent Toolkit, the technology underlying the ManageEngine, with about a hundred customers, including most of the middleware ISVs. We are pleased to leverage our deep expertise in the standards-based management domain to offer unsurpassed value to ISVs and enterprises", added Vembu.

Any management console can utilize the rich, enterprise-specific and standards-based management information that is exposed with the AdventNet ManageEngine. This approach provides investment protection and greatly reduces the risk of vendor lock-in, obsolescence as well as the need for costly development of custom management solutions.
