Rip and Replace - Never (Operations Manager has 15 years of stability)

There has been some FUD thrown around by one of our competitors about HP’s commitment to our Operations management products. This nameless competitor is calling for HP customers to migrate to this competing suite of BSM products. They even have specific plays for HP OpenView Operations (now called Operations Center), SiteScope, and several other HP Software products.


Let me be very clear about one thing:
HP Operations Center has NEVER required a rip and replace upgrade!



HP understands the production nature of it IT infrastructure monitoring products and is very sensitive about forcing its customers to migrate. The same cannot be said about our unmentioned competitor. Their migrations are neither easy nor free.


A good example of our commitment to stability is OMi. It introduces significant new functionality such as Topology-Based Event Correlation (TBEC) as an overlay to our existing Operations Manager products that fits seamlessly into existing deployments. This allows customers to leverage their existing investment in management servers, agents, and Smart Plug-Ins - with no rip and replace.


If you have any questions about this or want to discuss our competitors false claims, please let me know.


For Operations Center, Peter Spielvogel
