HP Software announces the general availability of HP Service Manager (SM) 9.3, marking another milestone in the evolution of integrated, automated and cloud-powered IT service management for the Instant-on Enterprise. This software offering has something for everyone involved with the service desk function – ranging from IT end users to operators/agents and administrators.

Built on ITIL best practices, HP Service Manager is a single communications hub that is core to the HP IT Service Management solution and enables IT to work as one organization – governed by a consistent set of processes.

HP Service Manager has been enhanced with multiple new features, addressing client needs in the areas of productivity, ease-of-use, end-user satisfaction and quicker software updates.

This new feature has been built for a smart phone form factor, is included at no additional cost, and is supported on a wide range of devices, including the Apple iPhone and iPad, Google Android devices, HP WebOS devices and RIM Blackberry.

· Customizable mySM dashboard: IT can access the right information when they need it, with a new dashboard that can tailor data from HP Service Manager or other external sources, without the need of an administrator.

· Enhanced knowledge management (KM): A new and improved KM offering yields fast, effective searches using cutting-edge search engine technology and new search forms that have been designed from the ground up.

Ease of Use

· Graphical “Process Designer”: IT organizations can speed implementations with a new GUI-based workflow designer and rules editor that simplify the editing and configuring of workflows, conditions and rules. Process modules will also be available via HP LiveNetwork.

· Easier (and better) reporting: IT organizations can demonstrate its value to the business with HP Service Manager’s new partner extension solution.

End-User Satisfaction
