A Navigator for Your Voyage to the Cloud: Meet Chris Coggrave

TS_Guest on ‎02-01-2013 02:08 PM


Chris CoggraveThe massive transformation of IT that goes by the name cloud computing is still in its early stages, but already enterprises are struggling to understand and leverage the burst of innovation we’ve seen in the past few years. From SaaS to IaaS, from Hybrid Cloud to Converged Cloud, the number of options and opportunities just keeps expanding.


For Chris Coggrave, HP Infrastructure Services Director, Cloud is just one aspect – though a key one – of the ongoing evolution of the data center. “All enterprises are on a journey to improve the way they deliver IT to the business” he notes. “Understanding how innovation can assist you on that journey is what is important."


With his wide experience in IT, business consulting, and engineering – including a stint on the Space Shuttle Program! – Chris is the ideal guide for that journey. He helps companies to take a pragmatic approach to new technologies, one that encompasses a view of the future of the market. And he helps IT leaders understand where they are now, where they want to go, and how to get there while minimizing costs and maximizing benefits to the business.


At HP Discover in Frankfurt in December, Chris recorded this series of videos on Cloud transformation strategies:
