HP announces the latest version of HP BSM, which provides end-to-end visibility into the health of business services, powered by meaningful intelligence and analytics, helping IT increase its operational efficiency and reduce down time.

BSM 9.2 introduces the concept of “Operational Analytics” (OpsAnalytics), which provides customers the right intelligence to accurately predict and prevent problems, while also being able to analyze and search the massive amounts of data to quickly identify and diagnose issues. It combines the power of Operations Manager i (OMi), with the capabilities of Logger to help customers prevent or resolve any incident in their environment.

In addition, in this release, HP also introduces HP Virtualization Performance Viewer (vPV), a triage tool for virtualization administrators and subject matter experts (vSME) to diagnose and troubleshoot performance bottlenecks in virtualized environments.

Customers can download the free version of vPV to start using in production to gain immediate value.  

What’s cool and exciting about BSM 9.20?

OpsAnalytics delivers actionable intelligence about the health of IT services by automating the correlation and analysis of consolidated data, including machine data, logs, events, topology and performance information. It enables customers to:

- Remediate known problems before they occur with predictive analytics that forecast problems and prioritize issues based on business impact.

- Proactively solve unknown issues by collecting, storing and analyzing IT operational data including logs, machine data, performance data and events to automatically correlate service abnormalities with the problem source.

- Resolve incidents faster with knowledge built on historical analysis of prior similar events that contains search capabilities across logs and events.

HP BSM further helps clients maximizing IT investments with end-to-end visibility across heterogeneous environments, enabling clients to:

- Ensure service availability with a 360 degree view of IT performance, gathered by aggregating data from disparate sources into a single dashboard using out of the box connectors to a range of management frameworks, including IBM Tivoli, MS SCOM and Nagios.

- Resolve and improve performance of applications running in OpenStack and Python cloud environments with diagnostics that pinpoint performance bottlenecks.

- Improve availability of web and mobile applications through greater insight into client side performance issues.

Below is a quote from a BSM 9.20 beta customer:

“Lacking automated end-to-end monitoring of business services caused service outages, costing us approximately $400,000 annually,” said Aslan Demir, chief information officer, Kuveyt Turk Participation Bank. “We decided to implement HP BSM software and now monitor business services as a whole, resolving many problems without ever causing downtime.”

Digital transformation is evolving the enterprise to one in which high performance applications are now the norm as organizations use video, graphics and other information intensive multimedia to populate these new channels of engagement. Digital technologies, and high performance applications, create further pressure on IT staffs which are grappling with PCs that are past their optimum performance. As a result, IT is looking at alternatives to swapping out PCs and investing in more costly equipment that will inevitably have an expiration date. One solution is to build on virtualization solutions that incorporate high-performance thin clients ...

If your business depends on mission-critical web or legacy applications, then monitoring how your end users interact with your applications is critical. Most monitoring solutions try to infer the end-user experience based on resource utilization. However, resource utilization cannot provide meaningful results on how the end-user is experiencing an interaction with an application. The true measurement of end-user experience is availability and response time of the application, end-to-end and hop-by-hop ...

There's nothing like a major web outage to remind us how much our applications rely on other web services and technologies to function. In late October of last year, a Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attack on Dyn, one of the largest Domain Name Service (DNS) providers on the internet, disrupted service for consumer and business applications across the web. This attack shed light on the delicate interdependent nature of the web as productivity and uptime across the world was effected ...

As an IT professional, I'm used to words that mean different things to different people. For example, "log monitoring" could mean anything from simple text files to logfile aggregation systems. "Uptime" is also notoriously hard to nail down. Heck, even the word "monitoring" itself can be obscure. This is why I'm not surprised that application performance monitoring (APM) can mean so many different things depending on the context ...
