HP Application Transformation Solutions Deliver Flexibility and Speed

Technology is “innovation engine” of the enterprise

PALO ALTO, Calif., April 12, 2011 – HP today announced new application transformation offerings designed to help enterprises drive innovation by delivering application flexibility and speed.

In today’s world of instant gratification, everyone expects secure, seamless access to information no matter where or when they want it. This requires an Instant-On Enterprise that can rapidly innovate and respond.

Innovation is what separates market makers from market followers,” said Thomas E. Hogan, executive vice president, Enterprise Sales and Marketing, HP. “At HP, we believe technology is the innovation engine for the enterprise and we have the unique portfolio to fuel it.

New research conducted on behalf of HP reveals the role of innovation in organizations today. Ninety-five percent of executives in the private and public sectors consider innovation to be important to the success of their organizations. When asked why innovation is important, the top reason cited by both sectors was future growth (84 percent of private sector executives; 63 percent of government executives).(1)

The respondents also revealed that ”changing customer or citizen demand” and “producing higher quality products and services” were the primary goals for innovation. To understand what is driving innovation in the enterprise, the survey asked the respondents to identify the “innovation engine.” More than two-thirds of the executives indicated that it was technology.

The survey also sought to determine where executives would invest first to drive innovation. The No. 1 response was “applications and software for more flexible processes.”

To help enterprises accelerate innovation, HP is expanding its Application Transformation solution portfolio to include seven new offerings. The enhanced portfolio allows clients to assess, modernize and manage the applications driving their enterprises.

Assessing application environments for greatest impact on innovation. HP Application Transformation solutions enable enterprises to understand their application portfolios and decide what to keep, change or retire. This is the first step in their transformation journey.

HP Application Portfolio Management (APM) software, delivered as a service, helps enterprises rapidly identify areas for portfolio rationalization using fact-based analysis against a set of enterprise goals. APM serves as the foundation for the enterprise application transformation plan and helps to reduce the cost and risks associated with modernization projects. By combining APM with HP Applications Rationalization services, clients can receive a customized applications transformation roadmap that delivers the optimal application portfolio.

HP Applications Transformation to Cloud services help enterprises analyze their application and infrastructure environments to determine cloud suitability, develop a customized roadmap for transformation and ultimately deliver those applications via the cloud.

Modernizing application environments

HP is helping clients transform legacy applications into agile services through a full portfolio of application consulting, development, integration and outsourcing services.

HP Application Transformation Services for Client Computing modernizes client device environments to Windows 7, delivering improved productivity, mobility and security. Using automation, standardized processes and a global workforce, HP can drive down the cost and time needed for implementation.

Managing application environments to ensure security

With the threats from application risks increasing both in number and sophistication, security is a major concern and challenge for modernization projects. HP Fortify Real-Time Hybrid Analysis is the first application security analysis solution that discovers the root cause of software vulnerabilities by observing attacks in real time.

By using HP Fortify Real-Time Hybrid Analysis in concert with new versions of HP Fortify 360 and HP Application Security Center, enterprises can proactively deliver the application security intelligence required to effectively manage risk.

Using hybrid delivery models to speed application transformation

HP offers a full range of cloud-based solutions to help clients on their journey to the cloud. HP announced three new offerings in its cloud portfolio that increase flexibility and speed time to solution.
