Tool Replacements

I have a couple of short term tool replacements we are gearing up to normalize toolsets across the company. We are a HP NNM shop, and we've decided to finally get rid of it, due to the numerous problems we've been dealing with over the past several years. The amount of work that this tool needs is immense. This is why HP is doing a ground up rewrite of it for 8.0. We can't wait for it, since its not mature enough.

We are implementing IBM ITNM (Formerly Precision). We are also going forward with enhancing our event management by using IBM Impact. Both of these products will provide a lot of value for us in terms of efficiency and increasing the effectiveness of the event management layer we already use from IBM.

We are also looking to get HP SAS in for a small install which will scale out. It's looking like 400 systems to start with. More on that as we nail down the project and timelines. More on the HP side, we are also looking to scale out HP OO and start using it across the company for larger projects.
