HP BTO (formerly OpenView) Discontinued

HP Openview really helped us when we migrated our old SAP Data from IBM Platform to OpenText.

  • If you are on a budget, this is one heck of a tool for the price (including the ~$200/year for the Pro subscription).
  • If you are OK with maintaining and updating open source tools, this is a great tool.
  • If you are afraid of the Linux command line or live in a Windows-centric world, this might not be the tool for you.
  • If you can't stand things occasionally not working, this is probably not a good fit.

It's open source. Your mileage may vary. Sometimes the provided documentation is beyond frustrating, other times it's right on the mark.

SolarWinds does when Observium can do but for a much larger price tag. That is what the decision came down to.
