HP Discover: The World Cup of HP ALM

Brian McQuillan ‎06-18-2014 10:44 AM - edited ‎06-24-2014 04:16 PM

We came, we saw, we conquered! HP Discover 2014 that is.  For us here at HP, this is our world cup. The three days of the event flew by in a flurry of inspiring keynotes, informative sessions, hands-on demos, collaborative roundtables and breakouts. All of our players were on the field in Las Vegas, and were united in one goal - to help you “Make it Matter” at your organization.


HP Discover by the Numbers – because everyone loves some good stats right?


NUMBER OF MATCHES (Sessions): 789


HOME GAMES (HP hosted events): 590


AWAY GAMES (Customer led sessions): 199


PLAYERS: 6.8 billion mobile devices in use world-wide. Projected 100 billion connected devices by 2020


GOALS (Number of Tweets): Over 2,500 news, reactions, comments, pictures and videos shared


YELLOW CARD: 84 percent of breaches at the application layer


RED CARD: 50 percent impact of encountering a bug


PENALTY KICK: It only takes three seconds before a user abandons an app


THE FUTURE: Industry analysts predict that there will be 1 trillion applications by 2020


Stoppage (Extra) Time Stats:

 - 37 percent of organizations host apps that are external

Also, see what HP product marketing managers Todd DeCapua and Silvia Siqueira had to say during HP Discover!

Some spoke, many more listened and all had a great time. From the announcement of “The Machine” from Martin Fink from HP Labs, to Meg Whitman’s promise to history 75 years in the making, HP Discover Las Vegas 2014 was one for the ages. We hope you were able to get your “app” on and discover new insights and knowledge on the new style of IT.


Now, it’s time to put on your face paint, get out your vuvuzela, and enjoy World Cup Brazil until it is time for the the next HP Discover. We look forward to seeing you all again in Barcelona!
