ACT – Aggregate, Control and Team for Collaborative, cross-domain IT event management and automated monitoring

A core component of the HP Operation bridge solution is HP Operations Manager i (OMi), universal event-correlation software for all IT domains. Via the HP Run-time Service Model (RTSM), OMi uses context built from IT topology, events and metrics to automatically correlate related events for quicker and easier root-cause identification—essential in today’s complex virtualized and cloud environments

OMi now includes Monitoring Automation (see video on this page) that detects new instances of infrastructure as well as composite applications, and then automatically deploys and activates the required monitoring. A new addition is “Gamification” in which users are rewarded for their achievements.

New! OMi Management Pack for Microsoft SQL Server. See more details here.

What is “Gamification” and how OMi includes gaming techniques

Gaming techniques are proven to improve user engagement. In the context of the HP Operations Bridge, HP OMi notifies operators who have reached notable goals, usually set by their management. Their work will often constitute best practices to be shared, and other operators will feel motivated to seek awards by other means. The net result is improved operations efficiencies, more detailed usage of HP OMi features, and greater return on your invest in the tool.

Simplified management with monitoring automation for infrastructure and composite applications

Today’s rapidly changing environments, require both simplified as well as dynamic monitoring configurations solutions, tailored to server infrastructure as well as composite applications. OMi now offers Monitoring Automation that detects new application instances and automatically initializes monitoring of them. In association, OMi software now includes Management Pack software that augment remote monitoring (equivalent to SPIs with HPOM software). Management Pack software for BigData and other infrastructure components is available.


Operations from Everywhere – The OMi Mobile MiniApp

In this day and age, many people have several devices. A day in the life of IT Operations staff is no different, as they move from meeting to meeting, conferences, or are on call duty. So wherever and whatever IT Operations staff are doing, now they can not only access the OMi Dashboard, but take actions from literally anywhere. The OMi Mobile MiniApp is available for IOS, Android and exploits a HP hosting system without VPN fiddling and security hazards. Now you can also access from Windows 8 devices. See these blogs for even more details on IOS, Android, Windows8
