In regards to computing on a company network, one of the most important processes has to do with integration. Harmony is necessary for almost everything. Without the ability to co-exist and work together, even in a digital sense, a network infrastructure may as well be at war. The ability to harmonize applications to synchronously operate is necessary to sustaining a computer environment which supplies end users and administrators with tools to operate in most efficient manner possible.

A kind of software, known as middleware, has developed as kind of bridging mechanism for interoperability of disaggregated software. Today, it is very common for a large business to have a composition of many different companies which have been inducted into a single working model. Generally, after an acquisition or a merger, it is a major task to sync applications used by two companies into a cohesively functioning system. Rather than overhauling an entire network, to ensure operation, the middleware can be used to construct micro-platforms that allow disparate applications to communicate.

One particular obstacle regularly encountered is the management of security compliance between network servers and their extremities. The IBM Tivoli Endpoint Manager (TEM) is a platform that features the ability to contact and manage all endpoints of the network, regardless of location or software platform, for the management of the system features. TEM provides a full scope view of an entire network with the capability to precisely administrate security templates, group polices, and system software patches.

The TEM software suite differs from other management middleware as it features the ability to administrate virtually everything on a network. Desktops, remote laptops, mobile devices, and even auxiliary peripherals, such as printing devices and credit card readers, may be managed through the various applications within the TEM suite. TEM unifies the big picture of the network infrastructure and beyond, allowing instant remote management of devices in real time.

One of the most unique features is the intelligent agent functionality. TEM places a dynamic monitoring appliance on each endpoint to continuously evaluate the status of various security components, pertaining to the exclusive needs of each individual network accessory. The agent relays information between these points and to the central management system for instant reporting. These dual communication channels enable accurate reporting so that changes may be made spontaneously, should the need arise.

Another major benefit of TEM is the innate ability to automatically configure endpoints when certain criteria have been met. Should the configuration of endpoint change to an unacceptable status, TEM will instigate a force change to the system. If TEM encounters an obstacle when executing a forced change, it can automatically quarantine a device, or section of the network, until compliance has been achieved.
