Are hybrids really all they’re cracked up to be?


By Greg Chabot


My cousin Denise has a hybrid.  Always telling me how great it is. Performance, reliability, safety – all tops. And the mileage? Unbelievable.  I try to avoid her at family reunions. She knows I have a 15 year-old gas guzzler and enjoys rubbing it in because I haven’t gone hybrid yet.

Now I know how enterprises feel when they haven’t made the move to hybrid in their IT operations. Like me, they’re spending a lot of time and money trying to maintain and feed an outdated environment.  And they’re going nowhere fast because their non-hybrid just doesn’t have what it takes to get them to their destination.

But for them, making the transition is a lot easier, thanks to HP’s Transformation Areas. Designed to help companies get to the New Style of Business, these areas not only help you make the move, but  also  make sure the changes you implement are the ones that will have the greatest positive impact on your operations and deliver the best results.  Check out my overview blog posted a couple of weeks ago on the four Transformation Areas for more information.
