As of HOPEX V4 CP3, Eracent IT-Pedia is available as an option for HOPEX IT Portfolio Management and HOPEX IT Business Management.


Applications are indeed supported by technology components such as databases (e.g. MS SQL) or software development frameworks (e.g .NET Framework). These technology components are often in large number and are difficult to track. If not updated on a regular basis, they can cause security breaches impacting business objectives.


Eracent IT-Pedia contains information about millions of enterprise products including versions, packages, and variations in which they are offered. It provides information on product End-of-Life and End-of-Support dates and automates the monitoring of technology lifecycles. It enables you to track technology obsolescence and mitigate related technology risks.


The integration is easy to perform in HOPEX. Users simply search technologies in the IT-Pedia Catalog and add them to “My Products” list. An import wizard tool is available to synchronize IT-Pedia data with HOPEX. Once the synchronization is done, imported technologies from IT-Pedia are accessible in HOPEX and include vendor name, release date, end of support, end of extended support.
