Software Universe Day 2 - BSM 9 demo on mainstage, OMi 9 revealed and the roadmap ahead

Day two of Software Universe continued the energy and excitement of day one, in both the track sessions and on mainstage.


For mainstage, Robin Purohit, Vice President and General Manager, Software Products, highlighted innovations across the portfolio. He brought other executives on stage to talk about new developments in their areas. Jon Rende discussed how HP’s rich applications development portfolio allows businesses to launch new services more quickly and at higher quality than previously possible. I wish I had these tools when I was writing code back in the late 1980s.


Ronnen Armon joined Robin on stage to cover the Operations portfolio. He focused on the BSM 9 release as well as significant enhancements to our service management and business service automation solutions. They ended with a quick demo of some mobility solutions that allow IT administrators to solve problems without being tethered to their desks. (Read a blog post from our partner xMatters (previously AlarmPoint) about the BlackBerry demo Robin showed.)


After the mainstage sessions, once again the attendees left to attend deeper technical tracks. The first session in the Consolidated Event and Performance Management track was our annual roadmap session. Interesting that people have an insatiable appetite for information. We just announced BSM 9 at the show and an hour later, they want to know what’s after that. While I can’t share details publicly in the blog, stay tuned and we will announce them as we release the products that we discussed in the session. We presented separate roadmaps to discuss the future of Operations Manager, our agents and other data collectors, and Operations Manager i.


Without violating any of our strict confidentiality rules, what I can say is that if you plot the trend lines from where we were a few years ago to where we are today and extrapolate forward, and perhaps steepen the slope of the lines due to IT trends such as virtualization and automation, you can make an educated guess as to where we are going.

For HP Operations Center, Peter Spielvogel.
