An Amicable Choice - Athene for UNIX Client/Server Performance Management
Source: Metron Technology
Faced with the challenge of extending the use of a document imaging system to some two hundred and fifty users in a UNIX-based client/server environment, IS Team Manager at Scottish Amicable's headquarters in Stirling recognized that performance monitoring and the ability to model 'What if' scenarios would be essential to the smooth operation of the system. The company had previously dealt with Metron Technology for their Unisys mainframe system, but knew that no-one had yet developed tools for client/server installations. Scottish Amicable discussed with Metron, who were in the early stages of developing a version of their Athene Performance Management software for client/server, the possibility of working with them as a test site to evaluate an early version of the software.
