Looking to boost the management of Web services on the Microsoft .Net platform, Computer Associates International plans to link its upcoming Web Services Distributed Management (WSDM) software to the Microsoft Operations Manager (MOM) 2000 systems management platform.

Announced this week, the integration will be enabled via the Unicenter Web Services Management Pack for Microsoft Operations Manager, due to ship in early-2004. WSDM is planned for general release by the end of this year. The management pack will become part of WSDM.

"We have integrated with Microsoft Operations Manager to deliver end-to-end management for .Net Web services," said Dmitri Tcherevik, director of Web services at CA.

"By combining the two products, what you get is platform-level management" of Web services on .Net, Tcherevik said. WSDM can consume information from MOM, while MOM can access WSDM data.

WSDM examines SOAP messages to gather metrics such as response times, transaction rates, and message size.

Actional and AmberPoint this week announced similar arrangements to have their Web services management products integrate with MOM. Microsoft at its Professional Developers Conference 2003 event this week expanded its MOM 2000 with a partner program, allowing for integration of MOM with third-party management products.

MetiLinx at PDC announced MetiLinx Connector for MOM, providing an environment to monitor Windows-based and non-Microsoft systems including Unix and Linux.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
