HP Accelerates Client Adoption of Hybrid Delivery Models to Improve Application Outcomes

WASHINGTON -- HP today announced new management solutions to help clients embrace  hybrid delivery models, spanning on-premise, off-premise, physical and virtual environments, enabling faster time to market and increased agility from application investments.

Hybrid delivery models that are incorrectly managed can increase complexity, risk and costs, which can quickly reverse any gains for organizations seeking to adopt them.

New HP solutions enable IT teams to effectively manage the performance and availability of all applications in the same way, irrespective of where they are running. The offerings include advances in the company’s industry-leading automation and management platforms, test data management and software services.

HP Business Service Management 9.0

HP Business Service Management (BSM) 9.0 improves IT operations by enabling staff to effectively manage application performance and availability to meet service-level agreements. HP BSM 9.0 provides:

  • The industry’s first run-time service model, which updates the complete run-time environment of the application service, whether the application is running in an on-premise, off-premise, physical or virtual environment. This ensures operations staff can know the most accurate view of their IT services, which dramatically reduces user impact and time to troubleshoot.
  • New collaboration capabilities utilizing Web 2.0 mash-ups to deliver actionable data to the right team with the right context across a variety of interfaces, including mobile devices. This enables faster decision making and problem resolution.
  • Automation of the entire event resolution process to dramatically reduce troubleshooting costs, lower mean time to repair and drive productivity gains. HP BSM eliminates redundant events and automates the process of resolution using industry-leading run-book automation tools.

The HP BSM 9.0 portfolio includes HP Business Availability Center 9.0 (BAC), HP Operations Manager i 9.0 (OMi) and HP Network Management Center (NMC) 9.0.

HP Test Data Management

HP Test Data Management (TDM) automates the process of obtaining test data from live applications. This automation better reflects production environments and reduces the risks associated with the eventual deployment of applications. HP TDM also lowers costs associated with application testing, reduces project delays and ensures sensitive data does not violate compliance regulations.

New HP software services

HP also announced three new service offerings designed to help clients drive the maximum value from their software investments.

HP Solution Management Services (SMS) is a converged portfolio of software support and consulting services that helps clients simplify their environments and maximize adoption of their Business Technology Optimization (BTO) and Information Management (IM) software investments. New offerings include expanded support for custom and third-party integrations and proactive services such as patch management and release upgrade planning for both HP and third-party software.

  • HP BAC Anywhere has been extended to support on-premise environments in addition to HP Software as a Service (SaaS) models. Businesses can monitor their external web applications at any time, from anywhere in the world – even outside the firewall – from one integrated console.
  • HP BSM 9.0 services – including an HP BSM Discovery Workshop and HP Consulting services – help clients design and deploy their HP BSM solution to minimize risk of application downtime and increase service quality.

“Organizations are evaluating cloud and virtualization as ways to lower costs and increase agility,” said Bill Veghte, executive vice president, Software and Solutions, HP. “With HP, clients have access to market leading management tools that enable them to reap the benefits of these new models, while continuing to monitor and manage their applications effectively.”
