hplpgoHewlett Packard enhanced automation solutions that enable clients to deliver business applications at lower cost whether they are deployed traditionally, virtually or through the cloud.

HP has enhanced the HP Business Service Automation (BSA) portfolio to give clients unified and fully integrated management of their server, network, storage and applications. With this unified view, HP BSA breaks down IT silos to simplify application deployment and management in hybrid IT environments.

Hybrid IT environments, which can span a combination of on-premise, off-premise, physical and virtual scenarios, including cloud computing, can increase a business’s agility and speed time to market. However, if not holistically managed, hybrid environments can increase complexity, risk and costs and create IT silos. This software enables clients address these challenges and better realize the benefits of hybrid delivery models.

“With HP, clients can achieve up to 382 per cent ROI by deploying HP’s leading automation software and leverage the benefits of new hybrid delivery models,” commented Kamal Dutta, Director Software & Solutions, Hewlett Packard India.

According to a June 2010 ExpertROI Spotlight conducted by IDC on behalf of HP, organizations that deploy HP BSA solutions can realize a 382 per cent return on investment (ROI) benefit over a three-year period along with reducing outsourcing costs by up to 40 to 80 per cent. These companies can also realize up to $4.82 in benefits for every IT dollar invested and reduce annual IT costs by up to $24,000 per 100 end-users.

Through the recent acquisition of Stratavia, HP has strengthened its automation portfolio by adding deployment, configuration and management solutions for enterprise databases, middleware and packaged applications. These solutions bridge the gap between application development and operational teams. HP can provision all of the components, rapidly deploy changes and manage the ongoing configuration and compliance management.

The enhancements to the HP BSA portfolio include new capabilities in application deployment and risk mitigation as well as improved efficiency and increased productivity to deliver the most comprehensive, integrated and automated IT management solutions for hybrid environments.
