We want to talk to you: Spend 1 hour a week with HP experts

‎09-05-2012 08:04 PM - edited ‎10-27-2015 08:10 PM

One of the best things about the social media age is the accessibility to form relationships despite location and time. At HP, we’ve been listening to the various social media channels, and talking to our valuable audiences, as we evaluate information technology — to get us from the past to the future. 


One of my favorite things to do is listen to other opinions on the evolution of technology, predictions of the future and evaluations of current challenges.  That’s why I’ve facilitated a program with HP experts and their audiences where everyone can come together once a week to chat over Twitter. 


Each week I will supply a “question of the week” and we meet virtually to have a conversation, with you our audience.  The topics alternate weekly between cloud and enterprise security


Here’s a sample of previous topics:


  • What measures can we take to track the ROI on Cloud Computing?
  • Is private cloud real or a myth? How do you know?
  • What methods or processes help vs. hinder your DevOps strategy? Agile, ITIL, COBIT, etc.
  • How can DevOps utilize Cloud without causing shadow IT?
  • How do you craft & deploy an InfoSec strategy for personal cloud via BYOD?

Interested? Here’s how can you participate:

Join us every Thursday at 10 a.m. U.S. Pacific Time. 


Our #ConvCloud chat is hosted by HP’s Cloud Source, Christian Verstraete on Sept. 13, 27; Oct. 11, 25; Nov. 8, 22.

Join the #HPProtect chat hosted by HP’s Wh1t3 Rabbit, Rafal Los on Sept. 6*, 20; Oct. 4, 18; Nov. 1, 15, 29.
































                            *NOTE: The Sept. 6th chat will occur at 9 a.m. PDT for this day only.



To participate, follow the hashtags #ConvCloud for the cloud chat and #HPProtect for the information security chat.  Listen in and join the conversation.  Invite your audience to participate as well.


Helpful hints:


  • Add a weekly reminder to your calendar
  • Use a Twitter client like TweetChat to help follow the conversation
  • Try to engage your audience to join the conversation
  • Follow Enterprise CIO Forum to get the question of the week
  • Let us know if you have suggested topics or questions for the discussion


And remember, the conversation doesn’t just end when the hour is over.  We will continue to use these hashtags everyday to stay in touch.


Let the conversation begin!
