IT asset management for the cloud era

Today, we announced a new set of Automation, Orchestration and Cloud Management solutions. One of them is the HP Asset Manager solution for chargeback. It is a completely new product and I want to take the time to introduce you to it today.

Chargeback enables you to get most out of your private cloud:

  1.        It enhances business agility—Chargeback allows IT to offer a variety of cloud services at price points that meet customers’ and end users’ needs
  2.       It improves efficiency and lowers costs—chargeback ensures cloud services are run economically, compared with external cloud service providers
  3.      It speeds innovation and business growth—since optimized service offerings enable investing in new value-add cloud services

HP Asset Manager chargeback solution offers simple and straightforward billing capabilities to charge for consumption of IT virtualized and cloud resources. The chargeback is based on actual usage.

The three most important benefits of Chargeback are:

  •       Enabling cost recovery for IT resources based on actual usage
  •       Cost transparency to understand the true costs of cloud services with personalized cost control
  •       It’s simple to manage while being easy and intuitive to use

The new solution will provide chargeback and show back reports for end users, department and budget managers as well as for IT cloud service owners. It can easily connect to corporate financial systems and bring cloud financial data to the enterprise supply chain.


Unfortunately you will have to wait until my next blog post in June to learn more about new HP Asset Manager chargeback capabilities.

In the meantime, please visit and to find out more.
