HP announces Australian enterprise software push

HP announces Australian enterprise software push More than 30 new offerings to arrive from next week

SYDNEY, September 8, 2003 HP is shipping 30 new software products and enhancements in its biggest single push into the Australian enterprise software market.

The new offerings are part of the HP OpenView management software portfolio and range from web services products and network reporting tools. The offerings are expected to arrive in Australia next week.

Todd DeLaughter, Vice President and General Manager, HP OpenView, headed the official Australian launch in Sydney today.

"Australian enterprises are pushing the envelope in the provision of IT service management and the introduction of this suite of products has been driven by these organisations," said DeLaughter.

Major releases announced today include:

· Business Impact Analysis: This enables companies to assess the impact that infrastructure failures or reduced performance has upon their business. By correlating business flows with underlying operations data, companies can quickly assess the financial costs and degree of customer disruptions.

· Navigator Network Manager Advanced 7.0: This integrated package reduces network repair time by identifying and resolving possible downtime problems before they turn disastrous. · Service Navigator Value Pack: This solution capitalises on an integrated common data repository using HP OpenView Service Desk to proactively manage IT resources and avoid service level agreement violations.

"HP's new suite of HP OpenView software will allow Australian enterprises to more intelligently manage their infrastructure and increase their business agility to better react to rapid changes in the marketplace," said Ali Al Tarafi, General Manager, HP Software, South Pacific.

"We have already attracted strong pre shipping interest from a number of Australian enterprises who are looking at reducing the complexity of their network infrastructures and improving the return on their IT investment."

Many of the products being released in Australia were first showcased at the HP Software Forum in Chicago, United States, in June and build on HP's Adaptive Enterprise strategy.

The Adaptive Enterprise strategy allows companies to demand more out of their IT environments and partners, more accountability, more agility and a better return on information technology. HP helps companies become an adaptive enterprise, one that matches supply and demand of resources in real time by providing a combination of services, software, hardware and standards based reference architecture that tightens the linkage between business and IT so companies can capitalise on change.
