HPE: A totally fearless presence at Microsoft Ignite

HPE will have a substantial presence at Microsoft Ignite, taking place between November 4 – 8 in Orlando, FL. Just as important, we will be there fearlessly, emphasizing our theme of “Fear no Cloud.”  We invite you to join cloud 1.jpgus in driving out the fear by visiting us at HPE Booth 2549, speaking with our 50+ Microsoft experts/gurus, and attending our special events, demos, and theater sessions – all described below. 

We’re at the event to help you navigate your journey to the hybrid cloud without fear. No matter where you are in the journey, HPE can identify and implement the right cloud strategy and accelerate your digital transformation by uniquely addressing your toughest challenges from technology, to people and processes, to economics. Here’s where to go to get our expert assistance:

A center of excellence: HPE Booth 2549

Their goal is to listen closely to your challenges and goals, and then work with you to configure the ideal solution for your organizations. There are also two additional ways to interact    with our experts:

  • Attend one or both of the two “Happy Hours” dedicated to providing direct access with the experts. They’re being held on November 5 and November 6, from 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m. each day. Plenty of time to ask questions and get answers from the best. 
  • Reserve your spot at one of three HPE Microsoft Expert Workshops, designed to help you gain a greater understanding of HPE and Microsoft technologies, solutions and services and help you to develop a smarter, faster platform to grow your business into the future. Available topics include: “Find your right mix of Microsoft Azure Hybrid Cloud with HPE ProLiant for Microsoft Azure Stack,” Streamline and accelerate the way you keep your Azure Stack HCI deployment,” and “Strategic consulting hour to accelerate your Digital Workplace transformation.”
