HP today introduced new offerings that improve visibility into the relationship between software and physical, virtual and cloud IT infrastructure, enabling organizations to reduce complexity and take control of their IT processes and services.

The new HP Configuration Management System (CMS) 10 includes new HP Universal Discovery software, which offers automated discovery capabilities to support the deployment and management of physical, virtual and cloud projects.

Automated discovery capabilities enable clients to reduce costs and risks associated with service disruptions, as well as decrease the time spent on manual discovery by more than 50 percent.

In addition, HP CMS clients have recently seen an increase in speed of projects completed.

HP Discovery software offerings are currently being used by 40 percent of the Fortune 50, as well as six out of the seven largest global automotive manufacturers, and four out of the five largest global telecommunication service providers.

HP CMS 10 enables enterprises, governments and managed service providers (MSPs) to:

- Save time by quickly discovering software and hardware inventory, as well as associated dependencies, in a single unified discovery solution

- Speed time to value with a simplified user interface and enhanced scalability, allowing IT teams to consume and use rich intelligence hosted in the HP CMS

- More easily manage multiple client environments within a single HP Universal Configuration Management Database (CMDB)with improved security, automation and scalability

- Save money by automatically locating and cataloging new technologies related to network hardware, open-source middleware, storage, enterprise resource planning (ERP) and infrastructure software providers

- Minimize application failure risks as a result of poorly constructed server clusters by introducing new server compliance thresholds

With the growing adoption of cloud computing, organizations are under increasing pressure to deliver new services and scale existing ones. The complexities of cloud-based infrastructures, coupled with a lack of infrastructure visibility, have hampered organizations’ ability to efficiently and predictably manage IT performance.

“CMDB implementations have additional complexity when there are requirements for dependency mapping, discovery and inventory tools,” said Ronni Colville, VP and Distinguished Analyst, IT Operations Management, Gartner, Inc. “A unified offering that combines the best of both could offer users a more efficient means of tracking and modeling data-center services, applications and infrastructure.”

HP CMS 10 also introduces capabilities specifically for service life cycle design and IT operations within both HP Business Service Management and HP IT Service Management. It includes the new HP Universal Discovery offering as well as Content Pack 11, HP Universal Configuration Management Database (UCMDB), HP UCMDB Configuration Manager and HP UCMDB Browser.

“Service disruptions within complex cloud and virtualized environments are difficult to identify and resolve,” said Shane Pearson, VP, Product Marketing, Operations, Software, HP. “With the new enhancements to HP Configuration Management System, IT executives now have the configuration intelligence they need at their fingertips to make rapid decisions to ensure consistent business service availability.”

HP CMS 10 is a key component of the HP IT Performance Suite, the next-generation enterprise performance software platform that enables IT management to improve performance with operational intelligence.
