HP Helion Blog Series: professional services is the key to success

on ‎08-20-2014 01:00 PM

When considering a cloud solution for your business needs which of the following options makes the most sense:

 

  • Ignore your IT department, select a public cloud and immediately deploy the applications and data you need in the cloud
  • Meet with your IT department, create a plan to meet your business needs and then wait one to two years until it is delivered
  • Leverage credible professional services professionals who have experience in meeting business and IT needs via a cloud-based solution

While option number one seemed like the most logical solution during the past year, many organizations are now realizing that the creation of shadow IT is not only a significant security risk but it is also a non-scalable method of having IT meet the entire company’s business needs. Option number two,  is not a practical solution to meet today’s business challenges. Thus, option number three is now the de facto standard for global corporations looking to rapidly meet the needs of the business in a scalable and secure way.

 

To assist you, HP has created the HP Helion OpenStack Professional Services, a global organization to partner with your IT and business teams to meet your cloud requirements. Tom Norton, VP HP Helion OpenStack Professional Services provides more background on this new team:
