HP has released new editions to the HP IT Performance Suite that will strengthen executive visibility into application development, infrastructure and operations management to ensure IT alignment with enterprise needs.

The HP IT Performance Suite is the next-generation enterprise performance software platform that enables IT management to improve performance with operational intelligence. The suite delivers a comprehensive view across all IT assets, automates IT management and adjusts IT performance to meet specific business goals.

The new solutions allow clients to:

- Ensure IT alignment to enterprise strategy with new editions specifically for a company’s vice presidents of applications and of operations, powered by the HP IT Executive Scorecard, which provides insights to optimize application development as well as infrastructure and operations management via a single dashboard view.

- Rapidly develop and deliver high-quality applications that are closely aligned to changing enterprise needs with HP Application Lifecycle Intelligence (ALI) 2.0, offering end-to-end visibility to changes made within the development life cycle.

- Enhance service availability with HP Business Service Management (BSM) 9.1 software that analyzes large amounts of complex data and metrics to anticipate IT incidents and proactively remediate potential issues.

“IT leaders have a lot of data at their disposal, yet they do not have a single system to manage and make sense of that information to run IT as a business,” said Bill Veghte, Executive VP, Software, HP. “HP IT Performance Suite gives IT executives real enterprise insight with critical and actionable data that has a significant impact within the enterprise IT landscape as well as in the boardroom.”

The new HP IT Performance Suite: VP of Applications Edition and VP of Operations Edition provide common metrics and key performance indicators (KPIs) for evaluating and reporting on an IT organization’s performance. As a result, IT executives are able to accelerate decisions that improve enterprise agility by automating data collection and analysis from multiple sources into a single, customized dashboard view of IT metrics.

The VP of Operations Edition contains more than 50 out-of-the-box KPIs and works in hybrid environments, including public or private clouds as well as traditional environments. Comprehensive access to performance metrics enables better automation, delivery and monitoring of services across the IT operations environment. This allows IT executives to plan, design and implement processes that support dynamic infrastructure demands.

This edition includes the HP IT Executive Scorecard, which collects data from a range of HP Software solutions that include HP Business Service Management, HP IT Service Management, HP Project and Portfolio Management, HP Data Center Automation, HP Cloud Service Automation and HP Cloud Services Architecture.

The VP of Applications Edition benchmarks performance data against more than 60 out-of-the-box KPIs to evaluate an application organization’s efficiency, strengths and problem areas.

This edition uses HP Application Lifecycle Management software to aggregate data from the tools used in managing all aspects of an application life cycle. These include requirements management, project planning, tracking, quality assurance, testing, application development including source code configuration management, as well as build management, defect resolution, performance validation and release.

For the new VP of Applications Edition and VP of Operations Edition, HP Software Services offers a Solution Discovery Workshop and software implementation services. In addition, upgrade, education and support services help clients accelerate adoption of BSM 9.1.
