15 Feb 2006:
IBM today announced it has completed its acquisition of Micromuse Inc.
IBM announced a definitive agreement to acquire Micromuse on December 21, 2005. Micromuse's operations will be integrated into IBM's Tivoli software business.
Micromuse is a leading provider of network management software used by banks, telecommunications carriers, governments, retailers and other organizations to monitor and manage their sophisticated technology infrastructures. The software helps customers manage increasingly complex IT systems that support the proliferation of voice, data and video traffic due to the growing adoption of voice over IP (VoIP)-based audio and video services delivered over the Internet. The combination of Micromuse's software and IBM's IT service management technology can provide a comprehensive approach to help customers reduce the complexity of their IT environments, lower operational costs, and address compliance mandates.
