IBM continues to target SMBs, this time with Rational and Tivoli

Mark Fontecchio Mark Fontecchio Profile: Mark Fontecchio

Big Blue wants its smaller companies to have (and pay for) the same tools that it offers to its larger companies, so it recently announced new Rational and Tivoli software for SMBs.

There have been past attempts by IBM to do this sort of thing, but the major complaint was that the smaller version of the software was just a watered-down version of the original with fewer features and less pop. More appealing would be a version that catered specifically to the needs of the smaller market. IBM says the new software does that, but that remains to be seen.

IBM has built a special site just to sell this small-market software, which includes development and management software that has room to grow as a small business grows.
