<p>HP announces Australian enterprise software push
More than 30 new offerings to arrive from next week</p>
<p>SYDNEY, September 8, 2003 HP is shipping 30 new software products and
enhancements in its biggest single push into the Australian enterprise
software market.</p>
<p>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.</p>
<p>Todd DeLaughter, Vice President and General Manager, HP OpenView, headed
the official Australian launch in Sydney today.</p>
<p>"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.</p>
<p>Major releases announced today include:</p>
<p>· 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.</p>
<p>· 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.</p>
<p>"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.</p>
<p>"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."</p>
<p>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.</p>
<p>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.</p>
