Hi Hemant,

If having experience of ITIL, then it is easy. But you have to learn the syntax of sm otherwise SM is implemented using ITIL with almost same termed used in tool.
Monitoring the health is done by different tools as DC have different components.
for servers - can use HP SHR, sitescope, OM, SAR for Linux base server.
for DB - use vendor software like oracle grid, OM.
fo network may use -HP NNMi, SHR, Nagios, PRTG and many more tools.
Application - HP BAC, BSM,

Managing of software patches/upgrades : HP Serve Automation, HP Client Automation.

Asset management : HP Asset manager can be used.

Incident management, Change management : HP SM as you said.
