Program overview

 

Hewlett-Packard (HP) is announcing the version discontinuance of Business Availability Center 8.x. All Business Availability Center 8.x customers with an active support contract are eligible to upgrade to Business Service Management 9.2x. Business Availability Center was renamed to Business Service Management as of version 9.0x.

Business Availability Center 8.x is the last version to support Problem Isolation. For this reason, we are announcing product obsolescence of Business Availability Center Problem Isolation at the same time. Business Availability Center Problem Isolation customers with an active support contract are eligible to purchase Service Health Analyzer under a promotion.

Business Availability Center 8.x is the last version to support the pre November 2009 product structure for Diagnostics (Diag), Real User Monitor (RUM), TransactionVision (TV), Business Process Insight (BPI), BAC for Siebel and BAC for SAP. Your support contract will be updated with the post November 2009 product structure SKUs at time of renewal. A contract update is a pre-requisite for getting the new Business Service Management 9.2x license keys.
