What a fantastic series of events at the APJ #HPETSS in Bangkok!

The largest APJ HPETSS was held in Bangkok, Thailand from March 6th – 10th.  During this week, more than 1200 HPE employees, HPE partners and customers learned how HPE Solutions “make Hybrid IT simple” and “Power the Intelligent Edge” and how HPE is building the solutions to enable Digital Transformation for our customers. 

Key Highlights 

With over 320 breakout sessions and 100 hours of Hands on Lab sessions, our HPE experts and other IT Professionals shared best practices, exchanged ideas and information from our wide portfolio of products, services and solutions. 

The Summit showcased brand new content and senior level insights such as executive keynotes in HPE general sessions, deep dive breakout sessions and engaging demos. The popular New Technology Suite allowed delegates to take a sneak preview of what’s next in HPE’s future portfolio whilst the Technology & Solutions Suite enabled participants to understand how HPE tools and resources can make daily business easier and more effective. With the highest participation rate of sponsors, this year’s Solution Pavilion definitely attracted a lot of interest. 

Among the top moments of the Summit was the launch of the HPE Tech Pro Academy on 6 March 2017. The tagline of the Academy: “Connect. Learn. Grow.” summarizes the goal of the Academy - Connecting HPE with partners, helping our partners learn more about our products, solutions and competencies, and recognizing our partners for opportunities that they contribute to HPE’s growth. It has been an action packed week:

  • 264 partner presales from 20 countries participated in the HPE Tech Pro Academy launch
  • 10 partner track sessions covering solutions across DCHC portfolio such as Gen10, Synergy, Hybrid IT and Flash
  • 5 partner roundtables, 1 per sub-region

There were many other highlights at the event such as the Women’s Luncheon celebrated on International Women’s Day on 8 March and the 2 evenings events that hosted over 80 Thailand customers and were able to showcase the depth and breadth of our technology, the highlight of which was Synergy. Customers, Partners as well as HPE staff were blown away by the demo of Mesosphere running on Synergy.
