“Because of the acquisitions in the past years, HP has consolidated as the global leader in Business Technology Optimization [BTO], expanding its portfolio with first class services and solutions,” he added.

Under the BTO concept, HP aims to help clients optimize the way technologies are oriented to their business. Consequently, clients can perform tests that guarantee the operation of all their software assets, according to what was expected, and analyze the impact of an upgrade with functional and performance testing.

Although these processes might seem focused on the large enterprise segment, HP’s software portfolio also includes solutions for SMEs, such as storage, network management and applications security, the latter aimed at preventing hackers from lifting information from corporate applications.

“For SMEs, HP offers a platform that validates performance, optimization and diagnosis. When your company depends completely on a secure and high quality performance IT network, it is critical to anticipate the results of the applications,” Alaimo added.

As a way to continue gaining share in the Latin American software market, which was estimated at some US$6.2bn in 2007, HP plans to continue focusing on up-selling to its installed base, recruiting specialized channels, and working closer with developers and systems integrator in the region.

Additionally, the company will place a strong focus on promoting performance management and quality assurance solutions, as well as security applications.

    Am I the only one that wonders how a company can say things like …”clients can perform tests that guarantee the operation of all their software assets…” without getting sued for faulty advertising or fraud?
