HP Discover Barcelona 2013: what you missed from the ITSM insider

HP Discover- what a show! It was the event of the year for HP, our partners and our customers. These jam-packed three days were focused on working together to build a better enterprise with the new style of IT. This new style of IT:  

  • Aligns IT delivery with business needs
  • Lowers the cost of IT services
  • Realizes faster time to market. You supply the potential, we’ll supply the technology and together, we’ll create something wonderful

We hope you enjoyed our recap of day one and the debut  of two new products:   HP Service Anywhere and HP Propel. Days two and three were just as exciting with the crowds lining up to experience the latest offerings from our Service Manager, Asset Manager and CMS teams. Before we take you on our tour of these products we suggest you get in the mood by watching the day two keynote here.

And now we proudly present….

HP Service Manager 9.32, our latest Service Management milestone, was designed with feedback from our current customers and other IT users in mind. With the three major features introduced in the latest version, we met our goals to improve productivity, ease future upgrades, improve usability and ultimately increase end-user satisfaction. The end-users at HP Discover seemed impressed!

Did you know? By the end of 2013, the number of mobile devices will exceed the number of people on earth. this is just one of the many reasons we offer a multitude of new mobile featuers in our latest release. HP SM users can now customize views, forms and options direct from their mobile. We also made several security improvements and enhanced enterprise readiness. BYOD, we're with you!

HP Asset Manager:

 

HP Asset Manager helps users and enterprises manage their IT assets, from hardware to software and everything in-between. This solution lets organizations monitor and manage all aspects of IT Asset Management (ITAM), including the processes, tools, data and the people relating to it. It provides direct results for the business by having information regarding what assets are in the enterprise’s portfolio, what they expect to own and what assets should be disposed of. By collecting, aggregating and tracking the cost of every IT asset, HP Asset Manager can logically map IT assets to business and IT services. This process conveys the information necessary for determining the return to the business of each IT asset. We saw a great presentation at HP Discover from SAP on how they use HP Asset Manager. Check it out here!

 

HP Configuration Management System:

 

HP Configuration Management System (CMS) is a comprehensive set of tools for collecting, storing, managing, updating and presenting data about IT services configuration items and their relationships. HP CMS provides vital information to IT experts regarding the relationship between the IT environment and the configuration items (CI) in it. When changes are made to the IT environment, the CMS tool can analyze the impact those changes have on related CIs with the information present from the relationship. This in turn empowers better decision making by providing IT with a deeper and more informed understanding of the information at hand. Voila!

 

And that brings our show to a close! If you missed anything at all we highly suggest you check out the videos and extras from the event HERE and check out our tweets and videos live from the event at @HPITSM!
