Tripwire surveyed IT professionals to learn how virtualization is expanding and if security, change controls and compliance requirements are keeping pace. Read this white paper to learn more about the state of virtualization today and why most of the respondents agree that a dedicated configuration tool is needed and are in the process of evaluating or planning to acquire such a tool.
In the spring of 2012, IBM launched a comprehensive re-thinking and refresh of its IT Service Management (ITSM) offerings. The IT management products formerly known as Tivoli Service Request Manager, IT Asset Management and Change Configuration Management Database have now been combined into a single product, IBM SmartCloud Control Desk 7.5. The products span advanced support for IT and intelligent asset management, change and configuration management, service request management and service catalog, along with Cloud delivery options and built-in support for automation beyond traditional service desk workflow.
One thing is clear: the old way of running IT just won’t work in the new business environment.Truth is, preparing your IT department (and your company) to be agile, cost-efficient, metrics-driven, and flexible will require a change in how you operate. To support new business processes, you would do well to turn to a converged system, like HP ConvergedSystem for Virtualization.
In this paper, we look at the greatest challenges faced by IT departments, and how traditional configurations, processes, and organizations are poorly-equipped to handle today’s workplace. We discuss the benefits of converged systems that are engineered to handle virtualized workloads. Finally, we look at HP ConvergedSystem for Virtualization as a simple and effective way for businesses to optimize their data center infrastructure
and processes to better meet business needs.

With A&D products containing tens of thousands of parts, and potentially millions of lines of software code–produced by hundreds of companies dispersed across the globe, Aerospace & Defense organizations understand the fundamental value and dire need for robust Change & Configuration Management (CM) processes. But it’s not just the number of parts, lines of code, or partners driving the need for better processes. The complexity of products and development processes, as well as the globalization of product development, are all contributing to an environment that is becoming more difficult to manage with each new program or project.
