HP published on its website the latest version of the HP Insight software bundle including a new version of the Matrix Operating Environment 7.2.

Nice to know is the availability of the new Insight Control Server Deployment software which will replace the good old RDP Rapid Deployment Pack based on Altiris.
From now it is HP owned software based on HP Server Automation.

Other new features good to know are SNMP v3 in HP SIM, latest hardware support and support for Windows 2012.
