AWS Config

It's really good if your infrastructure services is all in AWS, that means everything could be audited and monitored using AWS config. You also can create alarms to notify you or your team about any changes on your AWS resources which is very useful to prevent abuse if you have a fairly large team. It's also very useful whenever some third party wants to audit your AWS resources, if you have a fairly comprehensive AWS config configured, the auditing process will be easy since they only need to look at your AWS config setup.

Micro Focus Asset Manager

Asset Manager is great for people who understand the Software Development Lifecycle and are familiar with the terminology, however for a new assistant, or a new novice user, the software can seem over-whelming with the rather confusing terminology and a multitude of tabs that open up. It's definitely great software to use for a professional PM, however an assistant would be lost in the tools being offered.

Pros

AWS Config

  • It can help you define rules for provisioning and configuring of your AWS. We use it for this purpose.
  • It maintains configuration history. So you can use the AWS Management Console, API, or CLI to obtain details of past configurations
  • It gives you a configuration snapshot of all of your AWS resources and you can store it in AWS S3.
  • You can integrate it with AWS CloudTrail to correlate configuration changes to particular events in your account.

Cons

AWS Config

  • Vendor lock-in, no easy migration path for example if you want to move some workloads to Azure, you'd not be able to lift and shift.
  • Only at an AWS resource perspective - cannot do desired state configuration at an OS level (which makes sense but be good if you could even as a separate feature within AWS Config).

  • I think it lacks improvements, especially in technical support. It would be nice to have a live chat with features to send screenshots.

I find HP Asset Manager useful but sometimes too much data needs to be entered.

The performance has never been an issue for us, the dashboard gives us real-time monitoring and the alert sends us the notification within less than a minute of it happening, this applies to all of the monitored resources on AWS. However we can't (or probably haven't figured out how to) integrate with any other third party services, so we can't really evaluate how it integrates with other services

It is good, but as I said before, I would like you to have a live chat, where screenshots can be attached, so that technical support solves any problem we have more quickly.

Alternatives Considered

AWS Config

I do not know or have used any other product in AWS cloud space that matches what AWS Config provides. We have some custom built monitoring and governance, however that is there because AWS Config does not provide it currently.

HP Asset Manager is definitely enterprise grade, whereas the other asset Management programs I have are specific to either one industry or a smaller locations that might not need the deep analysis & reporting functionalities & tools that are provided by HP. The cost is indeed higher than other programs like Fox Graphic Tracker (Internal Software) and Samange that I have used in the past, but for a large enterprise with multiple ongoing projects, HP Asset Manager is the way to go !

Return on Investment

AWS Config

  • Security awareness. With multiple teams deploying provides easy visibility on any security risks. Security breaches would have a substantial impact on business so a vital investment with little costs.

  • HP Asset Manager is great for compliance purposes. We know we have all the licenses in place when needed for upgrades or yearly reviews. Saves us times.
  • Ability to track & print reports saves PMs time in quartely reviews.
  • Great way to prepare for any presentations by the use of analytical tools which saves us money in investing in other software for presentation purposes.
