HP Accelerates Enterprise Agility Across Application Life Cycle With New SaaS 
PALO ALTO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/05/13 --  HP (NYSE: HPQ) today

application delivery and provide unparalleled visibility,
collaboration and agility across often siloed or geographically
dispersed application development and operations teams.

    executing and tracking Agile development projects.

Empowering Agile teams in the enterprise
 HP Agile Manager unifies and
promotes collaboration with visibility into tasks, metrics and
progress -- whether for a single group or for multiple,
geographically distributed teams across the enterprise. HP Agile
Manager enables clients to: 

--  Simplify planning and capacity management across Agile teams by
    providing insight into projects, including the status of tasks and
    potential issues or bottlenecks impacting progress.
--  Enhance insight into application quality with advanced source-code and
    build-management analytics for comprehensive traceability, rapid
    assessment of change and risk analysis.
--  Foster collaboration through integrated development environment (IDE)
    integrations that allow developers to work with the tool of their
    choice, yet still work together to share information with other team
--  Improve visibility into projects with real-time updates via
    customizable dashboards, which include metrics and key performance
    indicators (KPIs).

HP Agile Manager also provides two-way synchronization with HP
Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) and HP Quality Center for
enterprise quality management and continuous testing capabilities. 
"As Specsavers' business rapidly expands to provide new services for
our customers, we must maintain a positive brand image and strong
operational excellence," said Jason Taylor, head, Delivery,
savers. "HP Agile Manager, together with HP ALM, provides
increased visibility across application development and testing for
better collaboration and risk control." 
360-degree view of application performance improves agility
Performance Anywhere monitors applications across the web, via the
cloud and in mobile environments. Now delivered as a service, it
improves application performance while reducing up-front costs and
lengthy implementations so clients can: 

--  Achieve faster time to value with automated, self-provisioned
    management and a simple-to-use interface.
--  Improve brand equity with smart analytics that understand historic
    norms and detect abnormal performance to proactively identify
    potential problems.
--  Rapidly resolve performance issues using an embedded social
    collaboration technology that allows development, testing and
    operations teams to work together and remediate application failures
    that may have resulted in production.

HP Performance Anywhere integrates easily with HP Agile Manager and HP
Quality Center to further promote collaboration across development,
test and operations teams to better align IT with business
priorities. Both HP Agile Manager and HP Performance Anywhere are
part of the HP Converged Cloud strategy.

information is fundamental to delivering quality member services,"
said Jason Siegrist, manager, Enterprise Management Team, Sentara.
"With the predictive analytics of HP Performance Anywhere, we can
proactively monitor the health of our web-based applications to
ensure that our patients can always access their personal medical
information via our website, or have the ability to find a doctor and
make virtual appointments 24/7."  
"Enterprise agility results from the ability to quickly deploy
simple-to-use, on-demand tools that provide visibility and
collaboration across the application life cycle," said Subbu Iyer,
