HP Configuration Management System (CMS) version 10 was just named a winner of CRN Test Center’s 2012 Tech Innovator Award.  For the last nine years, this prestigious award has honored products that:

  • Solve old problems using new methods of technology
  • Push the envelope of what we thought was capable
  • Make an impact on life or business are innovations 

HP has been identified and selected as a tech innovator with continued steps in technology advancement and go-to-market.


The recognition comes after hard work and coordination on proven, mature products.  HP has invested quality time and resources into their discovery, by merging tools for discovering software, hardware and associated dependencies in a unified solution, HP CMS 10.  The new CMS10 includes new:

  • HP Universal Discovery (UD) software, which offers automated discovery capabilities to support the deployment and management of physical, virtual and cloud projects. 
  • Just-In-Time Discovery, providing clients with near real-time discovery updates on cloud and virtual environments.
  •  HP Universal CMDB (UCMDB), supports multi-tenancy, allowing clients to manage multiple client environments in one dashboard.

 HP CMS 10 reduces the time spent on manual discovery by more than 50 percent, lowering the risk of service disruptions, through automation.


Additionally, HP CMS 10 delivers end-to-end IT visibility through a completely Agent, Agentless and Passive deployment for a truly hybrid discovery product in HP Universal Discovery.  Faster time to value and business continuity insight with out-of-the-box cluster resiliency and data quality provided by HP UCMDB Configuration Manager.  Easy access to information for non-administrative IT users via the UCMDB Browser, which provides a simplified, mobile-enabled user interface allowing comprehensive view of any service or configuration item. The Browser is now bundled with UCMDB and CM.


HP CMS is specifically recognized for capabilities to enhance cloud and virtualization deployments.  With the growing adoption of cloud computing, organizations are under increasing pressure to deliver new services and scale existing ones. The complexities of cloud-based infrastructures, coupled with a lack of infrastructure visibility, have hampered organizations’ ability to efficiently and predictably manage IT performance.


 HP UD provides an organization with visibility into their IT environment, identifying what already exists, including any  cloud infrastructures, both public and private.  This data is then stored within the UCMDB and allows customers to determine which flavor of cloud best works for them.  CMS improves visibility into the relationship between software and physical, virtual and cloud IT infrastructure. This visibility  allows organizations to reduce complexity and take control of their IT processes and services.


Proven success in the marketplace


HP CMS also has a history of success working with channel partners such as Avnet, Arrow Electronics, Whitlock, Intact Technology, Configure Consulting and many more. These organizations provide additional value to clients through their staff, industry knowledge, integrations, services and solution.  This allows clients to rely on trusted technology experts and shift their focus back on business strategies and continued success.


HP Configuration Management System 10 is not only seen as an award winner by the technology industry, but is highly regarded amongst clients as well. 


“Clients have trusted Equifax for more than a century to deliver innovative, high-quality solutions—and our IT organization is expected to deliver the same,” said W. Scott Hite, director, Technology, Global IT Asset Management, Equifax, Inc. “HP CMS software introduces a new category of intelligent discovery that adds tremendous value and helps support our ongoing mission of delivering the best services as quickly as possible. What HP has done for discovery tools is equivalent to what Apple has done for the cell phone industry.”


The CRN awards are presented based not only on technical merit, but also on how much the vendors invested in providing their solution provider partners the tools and programs to bring their products to customers.  The awards go to vendors with products ranging from cloud offerings to digital signage to managed services.  HP is included amongst the best in the technology industry for delivering proven, quality products.
