HPE Discover: breaking records and growing partnerships

Last week, HPE Discover 2015 kicked off in a new city (London, England), at a new venue (ExCel London), with a new company (Hewlett Packard Enterprise), AND started with an exciting announcement: Discover 2015 had the largest registration in the history of the event! Thousands of IT leaders from around the world joined together to experience the true partnership of Hewlett Packard Enterprise, where collaborative people, empowering technology, and transformative ideas push everyone forward.

HPE Discover Diamond Sponsor Microsoft had a strong presence at the event. Discover attendees who visited the Microsoft booth in the Transformation Zone had a chance to get hands on with a variety of HPE and Microsoft® Windows 10® devices, explore the technical features of Microsoft Enterprise Mobility Suite and Windows 10, and watch demonstrations of Skype for Business® and previews of Office 365 2016®. The Microsoft participation didn’t stop in the Transformation Zone, Discover participants also got to enjoy numerous Microsoft breakout sessions and theater presentations on topics such as cloud platform, data platform, and cloud productivity & mobility.
