Hewlett Packard Enterprise (NYSE: HPE) today announced the launch of HPE Operations Bridge (OpsBridge) suite, analytics driven IT operations software that provides IT teams with a real-time dashboard view of hybrid application performance.
Powered by HPE Vertica, the HPE OpsBridge Suite automatically discovers, monitors and manages existing and cloud native applications and the hybrid environments they run in including – Microsoft Azure, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Docker, HPE Helion OpenStack®, and other OpenStack distributions.
“To keep pace with constantly evolving business environments, IT teams need tools that harness big data to optimize their fluid infrastructure landscape,” said Tony Sumpster (@tonysumpster), Senior Vice President and General Manager, IT Operations Management, Hewlett Packard Enterprise. “HPE Operations Bridge Suite helps customers transform IT organizations from a cost function to a value creator by simplifying and automating IT operations, and gives unique real-time visibility to help executives make decisions faster.”
As businesses continue to move applications to the cloud, managing IT operations has become increasingly complex and fragmented. Organizations that are unable to deploy the right tools end up suffering from poor service delivery, operational performance declines, and increased operational costs, which can ultimately lead to customer churn and lost revenue.
“As we move forward in our digital transformation journey, we are continuously challenged by legacy systems that support some of our operations,” said Jay Rooney, System Analyst at Vancity Credit Union. “Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s Operations Bridge solution gives us tools we need to automatically sense what’s happening, analyze our data and then adapt through remediation.”
