HPE Booth 158 at SAP SAPPHIRE NOW: A great place to visit and stay for a while

By Sean O'Connell 

It’s on!  For about a month from today. June 5 – 7, to be exact in Orlando, FL. And it’s very, very exciting for anyone looking to create an environment that knows exactly what to do with today’s IT and business challenges.  

SAPPHIRE Social Card #1.jpgI’m talking about SAP SAPPHIRE NOW 2018, of course. I’m also talking about the best opportunity for you to see a complete portfolio of HPE – SAP solutions in action. Think about it. Where else could you:

  • Get an up-close view of the newest advances in  Workload-optimized solutions for SAP HANA and SAP S/4HANA
  • Learn how to incorporate SAP HANA Enterprise Cloud (HEC) into your architecture
  • Explore HPE Cloud partnerships
  • See how the HPE GreenLake consumption-based model can make it easier for you to acquire and manage the server and storage capacity you need
  • Apply 350 years of combined HPE – SAP experience to the challenges you face and the infrastructure you want to build. 

All of this is available at one place and at one time: SAPPHIRE NOW. To make it even more convenient, you can see and experience this and more at HPE Booth #158 at the event, so plan to make our booth one of your first - and one of your most frequent - stops. 

One stop can make business success a go

The activities at the HPE Booth are designed to provide you with the information and guidance to help you select the solution that’s right for you at a time when anything else but the right solution can do you so wrong. 

  • Talk to one of the 25+ Gurus who will be available throughout the event at our Guru Bar. You’ll be dealing with experts with specialized knowledge, expertise plus over 350 years of combined experience with HPE – SAP solutions. Based on Guru Bar experiences at past events there’s a good chance you’ll come a way just a bit tipsy with knowledge you can use to power your IT transformation journey. Check out this blog from Roy Ferrari who will be at the event: What is the best cloud for me? We’ll also make you aware of other Guru blogs via the HPE Alliances Twitter account (@HPE_Alliances) as they are posted. Please follow us if you do not already.
