HP Discover Day One: HP Propel and HP Service Anywhere steal the show

HP Discover Barcelona kicked off with a bang! Well over 10,000 attendees showed up to experience all that HP has to offer and the amazing innovations that HP has in store for the future. The crowds were out in full force for Meg Whitman’s keynote. Hot topics of the day included the cloud, mobility, big data and security. You know the saying, “you learn something new every day?” Well, when the day is spent at HP Discover, you learn a lot more than “something” new. Here is some new knowledge we picked up today:

-       If the cloud was a country, it would be ranked 5th in the world in energy use, placing it in front of Japan.

-       “Nature doesn't’t need people, people need nature.” Wise words from Conservation International and                          Harrison Ford on how HP is harnessing big data management to protect tropical forests.

-       With HP Moonshot, we at HP will never build another data center.

-       And finally, we learned that HP Propel and the new version of HP Service Anywhere are here to steal the                  show.

HP Service Manager 9.32, Asset Manager and CMS all got rave reviews, but the spotlight was most definitely on the two big announcements made this week on HP Propel and HP Service Anywhere. If you’ve not yet met our newest ITSM family members, allow us to introduce you.



Meet HP Propel:

Following up on HP Service Anywhere from Barcelona after a couple of action packed days,


I talked to a number of very seasoned ITSM professionals (aka not easily impressed) and their feedback on the new version has been very positive. Usability and "cleanness" of the user interface and ease of configuration/administration were commonly mentioned. The service catalog and request fulfillment capabilities were specifically called out. And reflecting the Social Insight theme, the tightly interwoven knowledge management with self-service service support was uniformly called out as innovative demonstrating where ITSM self service moving towards.


I was one happy HP ITSM'er


P.S. Speaking of action packed days and news ways of leveraging/processing information (knowledge management, ticket prepopulation, problem affinity heats maps, ...), the ITSM Movie Guy (aka Scott Knox) was also very busy on the other far end of the exhibition hall ...
