Through the agreement, NetIQ will embed the operations management component of Infravio's Ensemble product into its Appmanager Suite.
According to NetIQ, this integration will enable IT administrators to manage web services through the same Appmanager console they already use for end-to-end management of Windows, Linux and Unix environments.
The company said the first NetIQ product to use Infravio technology will be Appmanager for web services .net and J2EE. NetIQ expects both products to be available this autumn.
David Pann, vice-president of product management and marketing at NetIQ, said, "IT administrators will have the ability to manage off-the-shelf or custom applications built on web services standards with Appmanager."
Along with access to the Ensemble product, NetIQ users will also be able to use Infravio's service-oriented architecture implementation framework. Infravio said the framework offers operations management with a corporate web services registry to catalogue, promote, authorise, configure and track web services and their use throughout the enterprise.
