HP is launching a two cloud services designed to help companies improve the development and maintenance of enterprise applications.

The HP Agile Manager and Performance Anywhere services will be offered to firms via a monthly software-as-a-service plan and are targeting developers, administrators and project leaders.

Designed for team developer projects, the Agile Manager will aim to help groups plan and track application development schedules. The management tool will allow team leaders to delegate tasks and monitor the progress of application development projects and timelines.

Subbu Iyer, vice president of products and strategy for HP software applications, told V3 the aim of the service was to give enterprises a system to help cope with the accelerated development schedules many modern applications require.

"Agile is being used as a development method across the board," he explained.

"We see a lot of organisations that are starting off any process the do with agility as the driver."

Additionally, HP said that demand on flexibility and agility is stretching over into the application management space. To help firms better manage agile applications after their deployment, the company is rolling out the Performance Anywhere service.

Designed for administrators and developer teams alike, the service will allow users to remotely monitor and manage the performance of applications in both the public and private cloud environments.

"Once you build your application and deploy it on the cloud or private datacentre you can use Performance Anywhere to monitor its performance and manage the health of the application," Iyer explained.

Iyer said that the tool could prove particularly useful for enterprises and services who operate in multiple regions around the globe.

A central administrator could monitor and analyse a device, then deliver instructions and advisories to a regional or branch office to maintain application performance and reliability.

HP said that the Agile Manager will be available immediately as a three-month subscription service, while Performance Anywhere is slated to go live in March.
