In today’s highly competitive world, organizations are focusing their efforts on delivering new services at higher service levels using the latest technologies such as virtualization and cloud computing. To accomplish this, IT needs to leverage automation, collaboration, intelligence, and up-to-date data in such a way that valuable resources are used where they add the most value.
HP Operations Manager i (HP OMi) software uniquely addresses these challenges. What makes Operations Manager i unique? It is the only product that dynamically and automatically discovers and correlates—even as the environment changes—two sets of data: event data that indicates infrastructure or service-impacting issues, and topology data that ties the IT infrastructure to the business services that rely on it. And two types of data can be brought into Operations Manager i—structured as well as unstructured, like log files—which allows for comprehensive insight when monitoring and managing business services.
Using this rich set of information, Operations Manager i applies advanced logic to determine the real cause of an incident, provides advice on the likely business impact, and makes recommendations on how to prioritize remediation activities. Because Operations Manager i uses discovery data that enables the dynamic updating of event correlation and impact calculation rules, the guidance that the software provides to operations staff is accurate—even if the IT infrastructure changes.
