Visit the Partner Ready Program area and read the latest announcement 

As we announced in the GPC press release, we are leading a competency-driven approach to HPE Partner Ready for partners who want to accelerate their sales growth. 

Check out the must-see Partner Ready marketing tools and resources  

Be sure to stop by booth 10775 to get a first look at our new HPE Partner Ready Social Media (SoMe) Center.  On the show floor, we have an interactive demo that shows how easy it is to access, customize and share HPE social content. The SoMe Center is a full-service, one-stop shop that provides not only “snackable” content—searchable by solution and product—but the tools to customize it in just a few clicks. It will be accessible by all partners by the end of the show to use on their company social media pages accessible via the Partner Ready Portal, and learn more about the new features the portal has at booth 10773!

Take a #HPEGPC selfie at the #StarTrek demo

If you’re at GPC, don’t miss the exciting Star Trek display and an awesome photo opportunity! Hewlett Packard Enterprise is partnering with Paramount to propel technology 250 years into the future in Star Trek Beyond, and during GPC, you’ll get a glimpse of it all.

At the Star Trek booth, you will be able to imagine a future powered by HPE’s The Machine, an HPE team of designers and researchers who dreamt up three pivotal concept technologies for the film based on The Machine’s cutting-edge architecture. So stop by and visit The Machine-inspired props + original drawings and scenes, and most importantly, take a selfie in Captain Kirk’s chair.
