ProactiveNet Launches Integration Incentives Program for Current BMC Patrol, NetIQ and CA Unicenter Customers

Offers 50% Discount on ProactiveNet Enterprise Adapters™; Seamless Integration Speeds IT Problem Resolution and Links IT Performance to Business Objectives

SANTA CLARA, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- July 7, 2005 -- ProactiveNet, Inc., the time-to-value leader in Business Services Management (BSM), today announced an incentives program aimed at current customers of BMC Software, NetIQ Corporation and Computer Associates. Beginning on July 11 and lasting until the end of October, 2005, customers who are currently using enterprise management solutions from any of these vendors can receive a 50% discount on ProactiveNet's integration technology, called Enterprise Adapters™, when purchased with a new ProactiveNet license.

"ProactiveNet adds a powerful, real-time data analysis engine to the tried and true capabilities of BMC, CA and NetIQ," said Ajay Singh, president and CEO of ProactiveNet. "This extra layer of analysis delivers the end-to-end visibility necessary for preemptive IT problem resolution, and ensures lines-of-business owners and IT groups can see whether IT services are driving the fulfillment of business objectives."

ProactiveNet enables Global 2000 and leading e-commerce companies to leverage and extend the capabilities of their existing BMC, CA or NetIQ investments by adding sophisticated real-time data analysis capabilities. ProactiveNet tracks the performance of the end-to-end IT infrastructure, and has the unique ability to link business metrics performance -- such as online dollar sales per minute -- with IT services and infrastructure performance in real-time. If a business metric becomes abnormal, lines-of-business owners and IT groups can drill down into the IT infrastructure to learn the probable cause of the incident. Conversely, if ProactiveNet detects a performance abnormality somewhere within the IT infrastructure, business unit owners and IT groups can see how the abnormality may impact the business if left unresolved.

ProactiveNet's Enterprise Adapters integrate seamlessly with BMC, CA and NetIQ and capture all relevant performance and system data that is collected by these solutions. ProactiveNet's powerful data correlation and analysis engine extends the capabilities of these solutions by providing early warning for developing problems and faster resolution for problems that have already occurred. BMC, CA and NetIQ users can also leverage ProactiveNet's Intelligent Alarm Management capabilities to help reduce the amount of alarms to a few actionable items, and suppress any superfluous alarms that may divert resources from the real issue. ProactiveNet does not require the installation of additional agents, so it deploys quickly and easily.

ProactiveNet 6.5 is now shipping. Pricing of the ProactiveNet solution typically starts at $35,000 and scales based on the type and number of entities monitored. Quantity discounts apply for multiple applications. Enterprise Adapters are priced separately and start at $800. ProactiveNet's 50% discount offer for Enterprise Adapters applies regardless of the number of adapters purchased.
