Surviving the Middleware Blame Game
Source: BMC Software
Effective management of composite enterprise applications is imperative to ensure that they meet agreed on levels of availability and performance. Considering the complexity of composite applications, that presents a daunting challenge requiring the close collaboration of composite application owners and owners of the individual components that comprise the applications. BMC provides a solution for managing composite applications that involve both distributed resources and mainframes. The solution enhances the already comprehensive application views provided by BMC Middleware Management with additional in-depth mainframe WebSphere MQ environment data provided by BMC MainView for WebSphere MQ. The resulting enhanced views permit broader and deeper looks into the application environment. With these new views, composite application owners, mainframe application owners, and middleware administrators can work collaboratively and efficiently to address problems.
