Are IT organizations aligning with ITIL's Framework?

Last week I visited one of our customers and while I sat on the plane going home, it hit me that the IT group within this company was set up just like the ITIL framework.  A few minutes ago, after reviewing a customer's presentation for the upcoming HP Software Universe (in Barcelona), I couldn't help but notice that this organization, too, was set up along the lines of the ITIL framework.

HP Software Universe + HP Tech Forum = HP Discover

HP Software Universe and HP Tech Forum will merge into one event, called HP Discover 2011. The new event will attract attendees interested in infrastructure, software and complete IT solutions. HP Discover is set to take place June 6-10, 2011 in Las Vegas.

Implications of virtualization on IT operations (Software Universe presentation)

Both HP Software Universe and HP Technology Forum and Expo will occur next week in Las Vegas. What is new this year is attendees of HP Technology Forum can attend a portion for HP Software Universe for a nominal fee. Details are available online or on-site during the registration process.

I am very excited and fortunate to be presenting the following presentation at both events.

Implications of virtualization on IT operations
Abstract:  Virtualization is becoming a key driver toward eliminating IT infrastructure costs (CAPEX) yet it is unclear as to the implications it will have on operating expense (OPEX). Virtualization implementations create a new set of challenges for IT Operations. In this session we will consider those challenges as compared with the lessons learned from past disruptive technologies (i.e. client server, web services, etc...) and use the conclusions reached to help you deal with the virtualization wave in an cost effective manner. You will also have an opportunity to provide feedback that will help influence HP’s future direction in event and performance management for the virtualization ecosystem.

Tuesday June 16, 2009 2:30pm at HP Technology Forum and Expo – Session 3761

Wednesday June 17, 2009 at 2:30pm at Software Universe – Session 1070

SiteScope at HP Software Universe

There is only one week until HP Software Universe in Las Vegas and I can hardly wait. We have lots of amazing track sessions, demo exhibits, roundtable sessions and an overall great opportunity to network with other people excited about HP Software. If you are a SiteScope user,  have we got some things for you to see while at the event.

Stop by the showcase to see a demo of the newest SiteScope release featuring updated navigation and administration tools that will simplify frequently performed tasks, and help manage large-scale deployments. You can also see how we've improved and added new integrations with HP Operations Manager and HP Diagnostics.

Attend session 1114 "Confessions of a product manager" to get the real scoop on SiteScope and BAC. Session is on Tuesday June 16 1:30-2:30.

Attend session 1319 “Leveraging Agent and Agentless Monitoring to lower TCO” to see some examples of how customers use SiteScope with Operations Manager to reduce the cost of monitoring their IT infrastructure.

Sign up for a Roundtable session and talk with product experts and other IT professional regarding HP SiteScope located in the Lido 3105 room
