INTEGRIS Health Selects Tivoli to Help Gain Network Availability

Tivoli Systems Inc., an IBM(R) company, announced Oklahoma-based INTEGRIS Health selected Tivoli's Enterprise management solutions to help meet its goal of 100 percent network availability, providing better service and reducing costs.

"We are employing Tivoli to manage, control, and monitor our entire IT environment statewide," said Avery Cloud, CIO, INTEGRIS Health. "We're running a $1.2 billion organization that needs to be protected.

"One hundred percent availability is my goal. It's what the business demands," said Cloud. "One of the most dangerous situations any patient can encounter is when their caregiver has to make split-second decisions about their care without the medical records being available."

INTEGRIS Health is deploying a number of Tivoli solutions including Tivoli Enterprise Console(R), Tivoli Distributed Monitoring, Tivoli Manager for Oracle, Tivoli Manager for Microsoft Exchange, Tivoli Remote Control, Tivoli Inventory, and Tivoli Software Distribution. INTEGRIS Health's IT environment includes more than 100 servers running a mix of IBM, AIX(R), Compaq VMS, and Microsoft(R) Windows NT(R), 3,500 desktop computers and 200 applications.

INTEGRIS Health, a not-for-profit corporation, owns, manages or leases 11 hospitals and dozens of primary care clinics, mental health facilities, fitness centers and independent living centers across the state of Oklahoma. In the future, the institution said it plans to look at extending its Tivoli deployment to support storage and security management.
