Dr. Tom Bradicich, (Dr. Tom) GM of HPE's Converged Servers, Edge and IoT Systems recently hosted top Finance Talent from our Wroclaw and Bucharest Centers at the newly opened HPE Internet of Things (IoT) Innovation Lab in Geneva, Switzerland,  While there they had the opportunity to learn about innovative HPE solutions, technology, products, Edgeline Converged Edge System.  In addition, they were inspired to learn how to foster engagement between teams. 



They shared their insights:

“Our visit to the Internet of Things Labs in the Customer Innovation Center in Geneva was a big value-add to my current role. Our host, Dr. Tom, did a wonderful job in showing us what Intelligent Edge and being the 1st mover mean. Intelligent Edge is no more a stranger, being innovative & different should be the key value to all of us. Making a difference and out of the box thinking was ignited as well as living and being faithful to our values. The visit was inspiring and broadening the horizons overall. Thank you to the management team for making it happen.”

“For me, visiting the IoT Lab was a great experience. In Finance, we are sometimes isolated from the business, submerged in numbers and missing the big picture. Visiting the lab and having fascinating conversations with Dr. Tom showed me ‘the customer view’. It is really amazing how HPE technology is influencing our lives and transforming our "day to day" reality. Great experience. I would recommend it to everyone!”

“In a nutshell, for us it was extremely useful and surprising to see the applications based on HPE solutions, improving our customers’ experience.”
