IBM said users are presented with a high-level view of how proposed IT operations will roll-out. This can then be used to tweak implementations.
The tool is based on Eclipse, a universal open source software tool platform, which IBM said could be integrated into an existing architecture. It uses Business Process Execution Language, an XML-based open standard for defining how to combine web services for business processes.
It will provide support for Websphere Business Integration Server Foundation, Websphere MQ message queuing software and Rational Rose XDE development tools.
