Welcome to a special BriefingsDirect podcast, an interview with Anand Eswaran, Vice President of Professional Services for HP Software & Solutions, conducted by Dana Gardner, Principal Analyst at Interarbor Solutions.

The one-on-one discussion comes to you from the HP Software Universe 2010 Conference in Washington D.C. We're here the week of June 14, 2010, to explore some major enterprise software and solutions trends and innovations making news across HP’s ecosystem of customers, partners, and developers.

At Software Universe HP announced the launch of a new portfolio element called Solution Management Services (SMS). It offers the ability to support the entire solution for the customer, which is different from the past, where software companies could only support the product. That’s the heart of what SMS means. It’s the first step in a very large industry transformation.
