HP Helps Organizations Worldwide Use Applications to Fuel Their Instant-On Enterprises

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- HP Enterprise Services today announced clients across multiple industries and government agencies have selected the company to help drive innovation by delivering application flexibility.

Research conducted on behalf of HP found that 75 percent of enterprises consider it more important to add new value and be innovative in the applications delivered to meet the needs of the business compared to two years ago.(1) However, most enterprises struggle with maintaining unresponsive, rigid applications, which can consume up to 70 percent of IT budgets, leaving few resources to invest in innovation.

HP helps clients address these challenges and become more innovative through applications transformation, which is key to delivering an Instant-On Enterprise that embeds technology in everything it does to serve customers.

Enabling innovation with HP Applications Services

Enterprise clients and government agencies use HP Applications Services to transform their applications to enhance the customer experience, ensure regulatory compliance and add new functionality. Ongoing, effective management of an applications portfolio helps clients realize the full benefits of their transformation activities.

US Airways recently signed two separate five-year agreements for applications management and data center hosting services. HP will continue to host and maintain the airline’s flight operating system as well as provide managed mainframe hosting for applications. Both are significant components in synchronizing business operations following US Airways’ merger with America West, also a long-term HP client. Following the merger, HP led the integration of the two airlines’ reservations systems.

The Agriculture Restructuring and Modernization Agency (ARMA) in Poland recently signed a one-year agreement for additional applications services, including maintenance, modification and release into production.

HP built and maintains a system for ARMA to help distribute European Union funds to farmers in Poland. HP is helping the agency upgrade the system to meet current laws, build new modules and add new functionality. HP has maintained other applications as well as provided data center services for the past 10 years.

“With more than 1 million beneficiaries, we need a reliable system with controls that help us ensure accurate distribution of funds,” said Waldemar Tuszyński, chief information officer, Poland Agriculture Agency for Restructuring and Modernization. “HP’s applications expertise helped us build the system and now maintain it so we can focus on meeting the needs of our beneficiaries.”

Through a five-year agreement, HP will provide applications management services for the Single Family Acquired Asset Management System (SAMS), an automated computer system used to maintain day-to-day operations associated with the more than 65,000 single-family properties maintained by or acquired via the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD). More than 75,000 properties are sold annually via the SAMS system.

Under the new agreement, HP will continue providing its system and knowledge of HUD’s business, so HUD can implement program and regulatory change as well as continue its existing business programs with minimal interruption. The agreement also includes an option to modernize the existing system.

HP also recently announced Applications Services agreements with Avista, AvistaHealthways, Australian Taxation Office and Dollar Thrifty.

“Enterprises that transform their applications have more flexibility to respond to and meet customer or citizen demands, innovate, deliver growth and enhance product value,” said Kathy Garcia, senior vice president, Applications Services, HP Enterprise Services. “By combining our deep applications expertise, broad portfolio, diversity of people and global reach, HP helps clients align applications to support business and government demands.”

HP offers applications consulting, development, testing, integration, outsourcing and management, including industry-specific solutions. More information about HP Applications Services is available at
