PeopleSoft, Inc. announced plans for development alliances with industry application management leaders including Computer Associates, HP, IBM, Quest Software, Segue Software and VERITAS Software. PeopleSoft will publish application programming interfaces that will enable these partners to integrate their application management platforms with PeopleSoft applications, providing detailed performance and operational metrics. The alliances would enable enterprises to manage both enterprise applications and IT infrastructure through a single management solution, providing customers with a new level of visibility and manageability.

"Historically, application vendors have delegated application performance management responsibility to systems infrastructure vendors," said Jeff Comport, vice president and distinguished analyst, Gartner Research. "Increasingly, users have the expectation that applications vendors and infrastructure vendors work together seamlessly, and companies that recognize this opportunity will have an advantage in the marketplace."

Through the planned alliances, partners such as Computer Associates, HP, IBM, Quest Software, Segue Software and VERITAS Software will be able to integrate their application management products with industry leading PeopleSoft technologies including:

PeopleSoft Performance Monitor, which allows systems administrators to measure, monitor and manage business process transaction performance.
PeopleSoft Server Administration Workbench, which provides system administrators with a centralized management tool for PeopleSoft EnterpriseOne applications.

Traditionally customers are in the dark when it comes to identifying problems and troubleshooting within enterprise applications," said Rick Bergquist, chief technology officer, PeopleSoft. "By partnering with these industry leaders, PeopleSoft will provide a new level of visibility into applications and the entire IT infrastructure."
