HP Service Integration and Management has the answer for “supplier sprawl”

siam.jpgDoes this sound like a familiar scenario? Your IT dept provides a service to the business, but that service might actually be composed of networking services from Verizon, infrastructure services from HP and application services from SAP. When something goes wrong, where is the problem located? Who’s responsible? And how can you be sure these services all play nicely with each other, not to mention with your security and compliance policies?


This multi-sourced world of IT services presents a growing problem for IT. And cloud only exacerbates it. (According to at least one analyst report, business groups are adopting cloud faster than IT groups are.) The result is “supplier sprawl,” and it presents huge challenges to IT in terms of governance, security, reliability and more. That’s why today HP announced HP Service Integration and Management (SIAM for short), which offers enterprises  and the lines of business service assurance for  multisourced IT services.
