VMware and HP are to integrate HP's BTO (Business Technology Optimization) software with VMware vCenter Lab Manager.

This will support VMware’s contemplated VDC-OS (virtual datacenter operating system) by integrating HP Discovery and dependency Mapping, BTO’s application and infrastructure discovery technologies.

HP’s BTO helps you make sure that every dollar invested in IT, every resource allocated and every application in development or production meets your business goals.

It is an approach to IT management that reduces costs and produces business outcomes by helping your IT leaders:

  • Allocate IT spend and resources based on business priorities
  • Automate key processes across IT strategy, applications and operations
  • Measure IT effectiveness and efficiency from a business perspective
