HP's Adaptive Enterprise vision keeps on evolving with the purchase of yet another software appendage - TruLogica.

HP is to add TruLogica's identity management and user privilege technology into the OpenView Select Access software. The basic idea is to improve user management across across a wide variety of applications running in a typical business. HP did not release financial terms for the deal, which hinges on standard closing conditions and approvals.

"TruLogica's automated user provisioning, combined with the breadth and depth of the HP OpenView management software portfolio, will help our customers drive down the costs and time associated with managing changes in user IT privileges -- so they can realize the benefits of becoming an adaptive enterprise." said Nora Denzel, a senior vice president at HP.

HP, Sun Microsystems and EMC are doing their best to rid the world of small and medium-sized software makers. All three companies have made numerous acquisitions over the past year, trying to build out their broad management portfolios.

Just last month, HP picked up software makers Novadigm and Consera in one go and then later nabbed German services firm Triaton. Before that, HP bought Talking Blocks and Persist Technologies.

HP, like its customers, must be learning about the advantages of becoming an adaptive enterprise. Two years ago HP gave the impression that it had reached a fully evolved state in which it could provide utility computing and virtualization tools to any user. Since then, however, HP has thundered out of the primordial ooze, acquiring all kinds of technological features.

The TruLogica protrusion spouting out of OpenView should help customers with a number of tasks. HP highlighted TruLogica's ability to automate password resets and synchronization, its Java support and strong registration, approval and security tools. ®
