Advancing Life & Work

Technology! Technology! Technology!


Over my 9+ years of work at HPE in Global IT, I always see myself thrilled, challenged and engaged in learning new products, strategies, initiatives. We are also encouraged to adopt, adapt and integrate cutting edge IT technologies. Robust applications are built this way to support business operation and achieve optimal results. In Quote to Cash program in 2013, we built applications using the new distributed framework technology stacks, as one of the early adoption of Angular/Node JS in Sprint J2EE framework and REST/SOAP services. This greatly helped to automate and seamless order management process. There is always tradeoffs when applying new technology. We are allowed to take risk, while assess and review carefully beforehand, and enhance and tune afterwards. Along the way, products keep evolving to provide more features with performance and scalability tuning catchup. During recent Global IT transformation, we introduced and migrated pricing data transaction landscape with state of the art technologies, for example, S4 Hana for modulated, integrated, in memory data modeling and processing; KAFKA for event streaming at scale and more. Process wise, from traditional Waterfall to modem Agile, we came out with hybrid approach to better adapt to our complicated, vary paced project delivery cycle. We keep evolving our tool to adopt, transform and support NPI (New Product Initiation) and product through company acquisition. There are many training opportunities here in HPE, for example, HPE Discovery, TechCon Technology Conference, which keep you at the front tier to be exposed, learn and contribute to all HPE innovations.
