Hewlett-Packard Co OpenView programmes manager Scott Safe says the company has now decided upon an implementation of its 32-bit Tornado network management environment to offer on NT, but will not give details until later this year. There are currently two inconsistent efforts under way to convert the Tornado release of OpenView for NT: Hewlett-Packard’s own implementation based on OpenView for Windows, and the one AT&T Global Information Solutions is doing from OpenView for Unix. Hewlett-Packard may be at the point of resigning itself to getting serious about OpenView-on-NT, mostly because of Microsoft Corp’s aquisition of Guildford, Surrey-based Network Managers Ltd’s network management technology; Microsoft will stick the Surrey company’s NMC 4000 technology into Hermes. NMC 4000 competes directly with Hewlett-Packard’s OpenView for Windows. Meantime, its Tornado-for-Unix code will be frozen this week, Safe said, in readiness for introduction of the distributed graphics and graphical user interface module this month. Data collection, events and discovery components have already been pushed back to next March. Intelligent OpenView agents for managing NT systems are also due next year. The company’s distributed object-oriented implementation, dubbed Synergy, i s further out. It claims a 65% growth in OpenView revenues in 1994. Revised figures from International Data Corp show a total of 21,196 Simple Network Management Protocol enterprise management units were shipped in 1994. Of those, 30.7% were the SunSoft Inc product, 27.8% Hewlett-Packard, 13.2% Cabletron Systems Inc, 9.7% IBM Corp, 4.5% Network Managers and 14.1% others.
