HPE demos at VMworld emphasize “show and tell” over “talk and sell”

By Bernadina Mickey

HPE is going way beyond the “talk” at VMworld 2018 to show you exactly what our combined HPE - VMware solutions can do and the contributions they can make to your environment – both IT and business. We’ll have over 10 demo areas at the event, each one focusing on an area or solution that customers like you have identified as being of specific interest.  

VMworld general photo 2.jpgIt’s HPE’s effort to resist the “talk and sell” syndrome that can sometimes dominate these events by adding a lot more “show and tell.”  If that’s sounds good to you, I invite you to stop by HPE Booth 1300 at any time during VMworld to check out the action. 

How and why?  

HPE looks at these demos as ideal opportunities to show you not only the “what” about HPE industry-leading solutions, but also “how” they work “why” they deliver such impressive results. And if you have other questions, you’ll be in luck because our demo area is staffed with HPE – VMware experts who can answer most, if not all, of them. 

Here’s a list of some of the technologies and solutions you’ll find:   

  • HPE Pointnext, featuring the HPE GreenLake consumption model and the complete cloud adoption services offered by Cloud Technology Partners (CTP)
  • HPE OneSphere, an as-a-service hybrid cloud management solution that simplifies and streamlines operations to enable velocity and cost efficiency.
