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.

IT leaders to share experiences at Discover Vegas 2012

Banner.GIFHP Discover, HP’s largest customer event, takes place June 4-7 in fabulous  Las Vegas.  I’ll be there and I can’t wait.  There will be more than 800 exhibits, displays, demos, sessions and hands-on labs, and those are always educational, thought-provoking and packed with useful, relevant information.  But it’s the people I meet and the stories I’m told that stay with me long after the exhibits are torn down and I’ve left the bright lights of Vegas behind.
