The new offer called HP Automated Operations 1.0, is an integrated set of products that automates IT operations across all technology and organizational domains.
Senior vice president, Software, HP, Mr. Tom Hogan, explained that this eliminates labour-intensive, ad hoc and error-prone manual processes and, in turn, helps IT organizations dramatically to lower the day-to-day cost of operations.
He also said that the cost savings from streamlining IT operations allows businesses to shift resources to more strategic IT initiatives that could help fuel business innovation and growth.
The HP Automated Operations 1.0 software suite, according to him, is composed of IT service management, business service management and business service automation solutions.
“This suite is one of the key pillars of HP software’s business technology optimization portfolio, which integrates assets from HP OpenView, Peregrine, Mercury and Opsware,” he said.
The company, Mr. Hogan further said, launched its HP business service automation software solution, a single platform to automate all IT processes and drive change across applications, servers, networks, storage and clients.
The solution also provides a central configuration management database (CMDB) for reporting, which reduces the cost and risk of change while providing comprehensive audit and compliance capabilities.
As said by him, HP also enhanced its IT service management (ITSM) software and added related services that offer best practices through blueprints, training and assessments, noting that ITSM helps companies define, deliver and manage business services from inception to retirement.“We have been aggressively expanding our software portfolio in the last two years to broaden and deepen our capabilities to help customers improve their top and bottom lines,” he said, stressing that this relentless focus on customers has been paying off and more customers are now choosing HP software to achieve their business goals.
