Posted By Priya Kothari, Thursday, February 26, 2015
Updated: Thursday, February 26, 2015

Don’t waste your investment in HP IT Asset Management (ITAM) solution with low-quality data!

Sign up today for the webinar and learn how to protect your ITAM investment.

Thursday, March 5, 2015 | 11:00am PT / 2:00pm ET

 

Customers running IT Asset Management get deployment information from a variety of sources – HP UD/DDMI, MS SCCM, Altiris, LANDesk, etc. This data goes into Asset Manager or uCMDB, but is full of data quality issues that cause inaccuracy and ROI-destroying results such as:

  • Expenses & inefficiencies due to manual data correlation
  • True-ups from inability to respond to vendor audits
  • Lost opportunities to consolidate/optimize licenses for cost benefits

BDNA, through integration with HP CMS (UD + uCMDB), provides clean, normalized data for customers doing IT Asset Management.

 

BDNA integrates with HP Asset Manager as well as HP Configuration Management System (CMS). Using BDNA Technopedia®, customers can bypass UD’s Software Applications Index (SAI) and benefit from the most comprehensive a catalog of IT product data that is updated on a daily basis. 

 

BDNA's webinar, "Resolving Data Issues in HP DDMI / UD / UCMDB, HP Asset Manager," will teach you how to ensure your HP ITAM solutions run on clean, normalized data. You'll hear Wally Waltner, ITAM Practice Leader at RevealIT Solutions offer real-world examples from multiple customers. You'll also learn how BDNA Technopedia integrates with HP UD to resolve data quality issues by bypassing the HP SAI.

Sign up today for the webinar and learn how to protect your ITAM investment.
