The top 3 conversations from HP Discover

michael-garrett2.jpgEarlier this month I was in Las Vegas for HP Discover, our big semi-annual conference. On trips like this, I’m with customers from morning until evening, listening to IT leaders and hearing about their current challenges and working with them on solutions.

 

This time around I noticed a change in my conversations with customers. It’s as if we’ve reached a tipping point with the volume and connectedness of solutions that HP Software is now offering. So customers who may been siloed in the past are seeing solutions going across big data, mobility, security and the ITM portfolio, and they’re seeing the 1+1=3 benefits they get from this. What’s also striking is the relevance of these solutions to our customers—we’re solving real-world problems that basically no one else can solve.

 

When I look back on the conversations, these are the three highlights that stood out for me.

Innings.jpgLast week, I was talking with a consultant at a strategic integration and consulting company. He asked me a simple question: “How are operational reports from tools like HP Business Availability Center (BAC)—think single-inning baseball—different from a business IT scorecard?” Initially, I thought to myself, “What a stupid question aboutBAC”—but after thinking about it, I realized our customers might be asking the same question.

 

I pondered for a bit afterward, wondering where I should start my answer to his (and, perhaps, your) question.

William Gibson observed,  “The future is already here, it’s just not very evenly distributed.”

 

Here we are, six decades into the computer revolution, and we are finally in the era of the fully, digitally wired global economy. This is a revolution that HP was at the genesis of. It has been four decades since the invention of the microprocessor. We are two decades into the rise of the modern Internet, and it has been one decade since the peak of the 1990s dot-com bubble false start. We are in a place where industries can be transformed through technology and can be widely delivered at global scale.

I've just created a "webinar" (i.e. slideShow plus voiceover) on our vision of Mobility in 2020. It's about 8 minutes long.
