New CMS 10 enables IT management to improve performance with operational intelligence, HP claims
HP has introduced a new application, Configuration Management System (CMS) 10, which it says will help clients reduce complexity, save time and automate IT service configuration projects.
HP adds that the new application will improve visibility into the relationship between software and physical, virtual and cloud IT infrastructure, enabling organisations to reduce complexity and take control of their IT processes and services.
CMS 10 comes with company’s Universal Discovery software which offers automated discovery capabilities to support the deployment and management of physical, virtual and cloud projects.
CMS 10 is a key component of the HP IT Performance Suite, an enterprise performance software platform that enables IT management to improve performance with operational intelligence.
It also introduces capabilities for service life cycle design and IT operations within both HP Business Service Management and HP IT Service Management.
HP Product Marketing, Operations, Software vice president Shane Pearson said: "With the new enhancements to HP Configuration Management System, IT executives now have the configuration intelligence they need at their fingertips to make rapid decisions to ensure consistent business service availability."
The automated discovery capabilities will also enable clients to reduce costs and risks associated with service disruptions, as well as decrease the time spent on manual discovery by more than 50 percent.
HP CMS 10 enables enterprises, governments and managed service providers (MSPs) to save time by discovering software and hardware inventory quickly, as well as associated dependencies, in a single unified discovery application.
It accelerates time to value with a simplified user interface and enhanced scalability, allowing IT teams to consume and use rich intelligence hosted in the HP CMS and also locates and catalogs new technologies related to network hardware, open-source middleware, storage, enterprise resource planning (ERP) and infrastructure software providers.
CMS 10 manages multiple client environments within a single HP Universal Configuration Management Database (CMDB) with improved security, automation and scalability, the company said.
