HP OpenView is the former name for a Hewlett Packard product family that consisted of network and systems management products. In 2007, HP OpenView was rebranded as HP BTO (Business Technology Optimization) Software when it became part of the HP Software Division. The products are now available as various HP products, marketed through the HP Software Division.[1]

HP OpenView software provided large-scale system and network management of an organization's IT infrastructure. It included optional modules from HP as well as third-party management software, which connected within a common framework and communicated with one another.

History[edit]

The foundational OpenView product was Network Node Manager (NNM), network monitoring software based on SNMP.[2] NNM was used to manage networks and could be used in conjunction with other management software, such as CiscoWorks.[3]

HP has a history of acquiring network management software companies, often with inflated profit and turnover figures. In April 2004, it bought Novadigm and its Radia suite.[4] In December 2005, it acquired Peregrine Systems with its IT asset and service management software and integrated it into HP OpenView.[5] In November 2006, HP completed its purchase of Mercury Interactive Corp., subsequently integrated Mercury application and software life-cycle management products (QualityCenter, LoadRunner/PerformanceCenter, WinRunner/QTP) into the HP Software & Solutions portfolio.[6] In September 2007, HP acquired Opsware.[7][8]

In early 2007, alongside the integration of Mercury Interactive, Peregrine Systems and Opsware products, HP OpenView products were rebranded under the HP Software Division business, and the OpenView and Mercury names were phased out. The HP OpenCall name continues as part of the HP Software Division business.

The OpenView Forum International was an OpenView user group. It became Vivit (in early 2007) and organized the yearly HP Software Forum. In 2007, HP took over responsibility for the HP Software Forum and renamed it HP Software Universe.

While it is not an actual "user group", the ITRC is an online forum about former OpenView and HP Software products.[11] A new user group, the HP Software Solutions Community, officially launched publicly in April 2010 and includes all former software-related communities.[12]
