HP SiteScope just got a whole lot better! For those who are looking for a lightweight management solution which can manage the various levels of your IT, HP SiteScope has come a long way in satisfying this need. The words “Dashboard” and “Single Pane of Glass” have been overused in the last few years by many vendors. When talking about Dashboard with HP SiteScope, we need to remember that HP SiteScope is an operational tool designed to provide monitoring for your critical infrastructure. If you are looking for a Business Dashboard, then I highly recommend the HP Business Service Management Solution. Yes it does integrate very nicely with other tools in the HP Software portfolio, but as a standalone product it now elevates its value with itâ€™s Multi-View Dashboard.Â HP SiteScope now comes with a Multi-View Dashboard which provides a high level view of the monitors your IT folks care about.
