The three days of the event flew by in a flurry of inspiring keynotes, informative sessions, hands-on demos, collaborative roundtables and breakouts. All of our players were on the field in Las Vegas, and were united in one goal - to help you “Make it Matter” at your organization.

Also, see what HP product marketing managers Todd DeCapua and Silvia Siqueira had to say during HP Discover!

Some spoke, many more listened and all had a great time. From the announcement of “The Machine” from Martin Fink from HP Labs, to Meg Whitman’s promise to history 75 years in the making, HP Discover Las Vegas 2014 was one for the ages. We hope you were able to get your “app” on and discover new insights and knowledge on the new style of IT.


Now, it’s time to put on your face paint, get out your vuvuzela, and enjoy World Cup Brazil until it is time for the the next HP Discover. We look forward to seeing you all again in Barcelona!
