Expand HP Asset Manager’s View to Your Data Center Infrastructure
Nylite DCIM

Want to get a fuller picture of your data center assets? How about allocating data center costs more accurately based on usage? Or would you like to optimize maintenance contracts by identifying whether assets are actually in use?

Nlyte—an HP Software Gold Partner—helps you extend HP Asset Manager to the data center floor with their Data Center Infrastructure Management (DCIM) software. Nlyte identifies actual physical data center usage of space, power, people and changes, then seamlessly integrates this information with HP Asset Manager. The HP-Nlyte relationship is described by HP Software Partner Central here, or you can learn more about Nlyte DCIM solutions here.

Please join Nlyte Software for an educational webinar on March 18 about connecting your HP Asset Manager software to Nlyte's DCIM solution. In the webinar, learn:

  • Why Nlyte DCIM helps you control costs in the data center
  • How Nlyte supports HP Portfolio, Contract, IT Procurement and Software asset management
  • The specifics on how Nlyte works with HP Asset Manager, Universal Discovery Service Manager, and UCMDB

Webinar Title: Is There Really an ‘I’ in a DevOps Team?

The answer is YES! The ‘I’ in team doesn’t represent one single person in the apps development plan, rather it highlights the transformation of the once silo’d teams who support specific functions within the app lifecycle. The straight line of the ‘I’ symbolizes the one team approach that is making DevOps successful. Operations people are showing up in the testing phase of the application and the apps people are doing some measures and monitoring in operations. Recently, TechTarget named DevOps as one of six major data center trends for 2015. DevOps is no longer a new way to think about transformation; it is the ONLY way to bring together the silos that weigh down your business’ bottom line.
