HP OpenView Gone!

I read today that HP is killing off it’s OpenView brand.

That is surprising as it is a strong brand name and well known. It is going to be replaced by HP Software. Not exactly inspiring! This is due to their purchase of Mercury and push towards IT Governance. The new names of the products can be seen here – http://h20229.www2.hp.com/news/press/pr/2006/pr_0123.html

Feeling the heat from System Center, I wonder?

  1. Great news, since the cachet of rubbish applications that masqueraded under that brand have never been coherent. A good move for them, but I suspect that the actual result will be more like ‘(OpenView) HP Software’. A good time for building the system centre brand and gaining advantage.
