HP has released Service Integration and Management (SIAM), a management service which will help firms get a handle the growing number of enterprise cloud platforms.
The company is hoping that its SIAM platform will allow enterprises to manage and enforce policies for cloud-based applications and external services.
The system will also allow administrators to ensure compliance on data being stored on cloud platforms.
The platform will combine HP's IT management tools and services with consulting and training programmes for IT staff and administrators. Additionally, the SIAM platform will offer integration with the company's IT Performance Suite.
Michael Garrett, vice president of professional services for HP software, told V3 that in addition to helping provide visibility into cloud services, the SIAM platform would reduce the complexity firms face from relying on a greater variety of service providers.
"You have different services that require different levels of sourcing, compliance and security," he explained.
"They have a very complex layer which was not the same when you have one supplier."
Garrett said that the SIAM platform begins with the company running a "transformation workshop" with the customer.
Following the meeting, HP works with companies to choose a set of services and frameworks designed to meet their requirements, then helps to deploy the system.
The result, according to HP, is a unique system designed especially for each customer's unique situation and setup.
Garrett said that while future services could expand into the SMB space, the company is currently targeting SIAM at larger enterprise customers.
