IBM to Sell Automated Workload Management Software

IBM to Sell Automated Workload Management Software
ARMONK, N.Y. (Reuters) - International Business Machines Corp. (IBM.N) on Thursday said it will begin selling by the end of the year software that will automatically balance computer workloads, enabling businesses to cut back on labor costs while also use its computing power more effectively.

The company said the software, which it calls Enterprise Workload Manager, will work with IBM computer servers as well as servers made by competitors such as Compaq Computer Corp. (CPQ.N) or Hewlett-Packard Co. (HWP.N).

The software is part of the company's Eliza initiative to develop autonomic computers, which it announced about a year ago. As part of those plans, IBM has begun selling computers for businesses that it says are able to fix themselves.

Frank Dzubeck, president of Communications Network Architects Inc. in Washington, D.C., said that the new workload software and Eliza gives IBM a competitive edge with customers who are making technology purchasing plans for future years.

``This is directly related to cost savings,'' Dzubeck said. ''It is removing humans from the equation.''
