This CIO Dashboard shows information technology managers over 50 different KPIs that help monitor the amount of computing power being used in their enterprises.
Marge Breya, general manager of HP Software, said that HP makes software that measures about 150 different KPIs that can be used to gauge the health of an enterprise. This first batch of 50 will bundle together four different software packages into a single suite. That software will be used to “operationalize, measure, and improve IT performance.”
“The problem is that a lot of companies spend 70 percent of their time on operations and just 30 percent on innovation,” Breya said. “We can turn that around with this kind of real-time information.”
The business intelligence application developed includes the new HP IT Executive Scorecard, aimed at managing and improving the development of applications, infrastructure, operations management, security, information management and financial planning and administration.
The software lets executives do financial planning, analysis, project and portfolio management, and asset management. It can measure data in real time such as how much availability or reliability a data center has. Or it can measure how much energy is being consumed or how much payback a company is getting on capital expenses.
