Highlights from HP Software Universe in Hamburg

Another guest post from Lillian Hull, product manager for Operations Manager on Linux and Unix.
- Peter


I was quite pleased to be able to spend 3 days last December meeting with customers at our biannual conference, held in the U.S. and also in Europe.  HP Software Universe 2009 EMEA was in Hamburg, Germany with 150 agenda sessions, including 6 about Operations Center and provided a wealth of information and subject matter experts.



I co-presented with HP Operations Manager architect Hans-Peter Schmollinger on “HP Operations Manager 9 on Linux”.  The session was well-attended with approximately 100 people in the cavernous room.  HP OML 9 is the newest member of the HP Operations Manager family and already beginning to be utilized at several customer sites.  We covered configuration exchange among OM servers, OM monitoring the Cloud, migration and showed a live demo including policy types and versioning which are now common across OM supported platforms.


Here is some of the feedback we received about the presentation:



  • From a major telecom, “A very good, solid session.”

  • From another large telecom – “ positively surprised about HP OM capabilities after your session.” 

  • From a healthcare company, “One of the best technical sessions!”

  • From the public sector, “I was very inspired after your session.”


Though it was below 0 ° Celsius, we appreciate the very warm reception.


Thanks to the 3200+ customers, presenters and partners who helped make HP Software Universe in Hamburg very successful!  And hope to see you at the next HP Software Universe either in Washington D.C. in June 2010 or Barcelona, Spain in December 2010.


For HP Operations Center, Lillian Hull.

Software Universe in Hamburg sneak preview

Software Universe is only five weeks away. We hold this event twice each year, alternating between a United States and European location. The upcoming event is in Hamburg at the Congress Centre Hamburg (CCH) from Wednesday, December 16th – Friday, December 18th 2009.


(If you missed our last Software Universe in Las Vegas, you can download some of the presentations here.)


I’m very excited about this year’s show, as it gives me a chance to connect with many European customers and colleagues, many of whom I have only “met” through email and phone calls. In addition, there are many interesting presentations. Some highlights* (based on their relevancy to managing IT infrastructure - both physical and virtual) include:
