Innovation Week Part 5 - Managing IT: Mobile Edition

In a meeting last week with our partner AlarmPoint, we were talking about how innovations in mobile computing are driving people to do more on their mobile devices, both professionally and personally. I asked Christel Mes, Director of Marketing at AlarmPoint, to share her thoughts about mobile management options for IT Operations Staff. Here is her post.

After a meeting I had with the HP Operations Center team today, I wanted to share some thoughts for customers looking to become more efficient through mobility. Especially in today's fast-paced dynamic enterprise, accelerating business initiatives and executing lean processes are a must to drive operational efficiency. HP Operations Manager users must leverage mobile staff, providing them with secure remote access to relevant systems required to manage complex and distributed IT environments. It is estimated that 41% of an IT organization is currently considered mobile or remote. Times have changed drastically since the days of watching a console or carrying a pager to be alerted of critical events.

With the latest version of HP Operation Manager on Unix, Version 9, which shipped in early June, AlarmPoint Systems Alert Management and Mobility software has been included in the bundled package. Recognizing the importance of mobility, AlarmPoint will allow HP OMU customers to view, edit, annotate, research, trouble shoot and take remote actions on all events coming from OMU, through one consistent, secure, authenticated and audited access point. Now IT is able to resolve events faster, away from their console on any web-enabled mobile device including, BlackBerry, iPhone, Android and others.
