Benefitting from the Alliances “Transform to a Hybrid Infrastructure” sessions in London and beyond

By Greg Chabot

For years, I thought the guy down the street was a long-haul driver. He always had one of those Freightliner heavy-duty trucks parked in his driveway. Come to find out he was just an ordinary Joe who figured that rather than buy a different vehicle for every occasion, the smart thing to do was buy something that could do everything. And to him, a Freightliner was big enough and bad enough to handle everything. The high initial cost, low gas mileage, difficulty finding a parking spot downtown didn’t matter because he was the king of the road.  

transform.jpgTechnology used to be like that. Now, there’s no reason to overpay, overbuy, overprovision, overdeploy. Hybrid infrastructures combines traditional IT, private, managed and public clouds, so you can power 100% of the workloads that drive your enterprise, allotting tasks to the approach that can handle them most effectively and efficiently. That’s why Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) has made “Transform to a Hybrid Infrastructure” the first of its 4 Transformation Areas – the ones that can help you transition to the New Style of Business.

Solutions that keep on truckin’
If you will be attending Hewlett Packard Enterprise Discover 2015 London, you’ll be able to get an in-person look at what HPE alliance partners can offer you in this transformation area.     

PwC will offer one session on its own and another with Adobe:

  • Session #6986 - PwC shares market insights on hybrid infrastructure, the new IT frontier. The session will provide insights on the convergence of IT skills, dynamic operating models and flexible governance - all critical elements on the roadmap to hybrid infrastructure.

  • Session # 6322 - PwC + Adobe will discuss the five steps to DevOps success. The session will explore the issues organizations with traditional operating models face today, how to address these challenges, and a framework for measuring preparedness for DevOps transformation.

Wipro’s session will cover sourcing and fulfillment in “as-a-Service economy” using Wipro and HPE's BLDC platform. You’ll learn how to use standardized workload blueprints designed to migrate seamlessly across providers and apply the retail industry’s principles to IT sourcing.  Session #6299.
