HP Helps Enterprises Enhance User Experience with New Application Transformation Solutions

PALO ALTO, Calif. -- HP today announced new Application Transformation solutions designed to help enterprises drive an enhanced user experience by integrating mobile-based enterprise applications into the traditional computing environment.

The growing adoption of smartphones and mobile applications is changing the way enterprises create value and drive competitive differentiation. In fact, the economic survival of enterprises now depends on their ability to respond to customer and citizen demands, generated through enterprise applications as well as social applications such as Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.  

The expanded HP Applications Transformation solutions portfolio enables clients to design, build and manage applications that drive interaction between people and enterprises while optimizing traditional application environments to deliver an improved user experience.

“Modern enterprise applications require a different approach to design and testing than traditional applications,” said Jonathan Rende, vice president and general manager, Application Transformation Solutions, Software, HP. “HP ensures that enterprise applications provide the highest level of quality, availability and scalability while elevating the user experience to an entirely new level.”

New software products for IT management and social collaboration
The enhanced HP Application Lifecycle Intelligence (ALI) improves collaboration among delivery teams and reduces cycle times by offering real-time visibility and traceability of activities across the application life cycle.

As part of HP’s IT Performance Suite, HP and Perfecto Mobile, a provider of cloud-based testing and automation solutions, have extended HP Unified Functional Testing to support multifunctional applications by allowing developers to emulate and test the user experience of mobile applications across devices and networks.

Additionally, new software offerings from HP complement the agile development of mobile applications and drive social collaboration:

  • HP Anywhere increases productivity and facilitates faster decision making by enabling clients to manage IT on the go. New mobile-based applications perform operations such as portfolio request management, defect tracking, service health monitoring and the composition of an Executive Scorecard.
  • HP Enterprise Collaboration enhances knowledge sharing and accelerates application development through a social collaboration environment that enables real-time, context-based conversations traced back to actions and work items.

New services to design, deploy and manage mobile applications
The HP Application Transformation solutions portfolio of software products is complemented by new services to meet the quality demands of enterprise applications. The HP Mobile Application Services portfolio now includes:

  • HP Testing for Mobility Services accelerate time to market of mobile applications by reducing test cycles and automating testing across multiple devices with market-leading solutions from HP Software and Perfecto Mobile.
  • HP Enterprise Mobility Services for SAP® Applications improves employee efficiency by allowing mobile users to obtain data from mission-critical SAP applications. By extending its mobile solutions to the SAP NetWeaver® technology platform and the Sybase® Unwired Platform, HP now offers an end-to-end enterprise mobile solution that enables clients to access key enterprise information.

A fundamental component in the development of an application strategy, the HP Applications Transformation Experience workshop offers enhanced capabilities to exploit new enterprise mobile applications and cloud computing technologies.

HP’s premier client event, HP Discover, takes place June 4-7 in Las Vegas.
