Companies face growing pressure to deliver applications quickly and continuously. “We’re living in a time where everything is a service, and as a result, the speed and innovation is accelerating. In fact, we see it as an exponential curve,” said Matthew Morgan, vice president of Project Marketing, Applications, Software, HP. He discussed HP’s new product offerings, explaining how they support DevOps and cloud innovation in a recent interview.
HP announced enhanced versions of HP Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) and HP Performance Center (PC) that facilitate continuous delivery of applications. As more and more organizations adopt DevOps, products that enable visibility, collaboration and quality are essential.
“Application innovation is hindered by the silos that exist between development, testing and operations teams, leading to delays, missed opportunities and potential application defects,” said Subbu Iyer, vice president, Product and Strategy, Applications, Software, HP. “By integrating information and processes from IT operations into application lifecycle management, HP provides a critical foundation for DevOps, enabling organizations to drive business results through the continuous delivery of innovative applications.”
In addition to updated ALM tools, they also announced new testing capabilities with HP LoadRunner 11.5, which simplifies the scripting process, and HP Sprinter, which offers new scanning capabilities and automates recurring test scripts to ease the manual testing process.
“We take a heterogeneous approach from a technology and infrastructure perspective, meaning that our technology works and adds value if you’re using traditional deployments, private cloud, hybrid cloud – we are not tied to one or the other,” explained Morgan. He continued, “Our capabilities are incredibly diverse, not just from an infrastructure perspective, but from a technology perspective. We don’t care if you’re building a mobile app, Web app, HTML5 game app or a client-server packaged application…We can monitor them all, we can test them all, we can validate for performance every last one.”
