HP's decision to consolidate more than 85 internal data centers of 5,000 or more square feet, plus hundreds of additional smaller server locations, to three pairs of next generation data centers garnered considerable industry attention. As a part of this transformation HP consolidated its client management environment using HP Client Automation software as an alternative to its home-grown solution. Intelligent, automated tools like HP Client Automation help significantly reduce the cost and complexity of a number of challenges that corporations commonly face today: managing software distribution and upgrades, setting up new systems, and supporting clients and end users across environments that span thousands of offices worldwide.
