Peregrine Systems announces client server network management for MVS; expands computing capabilities of MVS platform.

CARLSBAD, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--March 6, 1995--Peregrine Systems today announced an MVS client/server solution for PNMS, a network management system for SNA, TCP/IP and Novell networks. This new server platform for PNMS brings the stability and proven characteristics of the mainframe to the client/server computing environment. PNMS Client/Server for MVS provides a graphical user interface for PNMS running on the mainframe via Windows, OS/2, UNIX, and Macintosh clients.

PNMS is an integrated suite of network management applications for distributed networks. The solution set includes Problem, Inventory/Configuration, Change, Order and Catalog, and Financial Management modules. In recognition of the changing role of the mainframe, PNMS is the only suite of network management applications to offer MVS as a client/server platform. The product communicates with IBM NetView, HP OpenView and IBM NetView for AIX to provide automated inventory and trouble ticketing for SNA, TCP/IP and Novell networks.

"Our MVS server offering is a natural extension of the MVS network management platform. This is a robust client implementation, not a screen-scraped GUI implementation of a prior product, which reduces the workload on the mainframe by about 50%," said Fred Luddy, Product Author for PNMS. "The product provides full functionality to 3270 users in parallel with the client/server implementation. This allows users to easily transition from 3270's to client/server."

The product's rapid application development environment makes it ideal for the most demanding of customer environments. While the standard PNMS configuration can be utilized immediately, the software is designed to allow four levels of customization. The customer may simply customize the screen content and format, field validations, and database definitions. Additionally, the entire application is written in a fourth generation language allowing for full modification at the customer site.

Price and availability

Pricing for PNMS Client/Server for MVS begins at $42,500. Upgrade alternatives are available for current customers. The product is available immediately.

Peregrine Systems Inc., founded in 1980, is an international company that provides innovative software that simplifies the management of distributed networks. Headquartered in Carlsbad, Calif., the company has development offices throughout the United States, and European offices in France, Germany and the United Kingdom.
