Let me get back to you on that … right now


Inspire general photo 2.jpgDepending on who is staffing the booth(s) you visit at events like Microsoft Inspire, the answers you receive to your business and technology questions can vary wildly in quality, precision, and value. And while you admire the honesty of someone who tells you that they will have to get back to you later with an answer to the question you just asked, it would be much better if they were able to provide that answer/information NOW. 

Well, I’d say you can pretty much depend on that “NOW” answer when you bring your questions and plans to HPE Booth 729 at Inspire. We know that “answers now” are definitely better than “answers later.” So we made sure to staff our booth with 40+ experts who have 350+ years of combined HPE – Microsoft experience. Whatever the technology area, the customer challenge, the business goals, one or more of our team can provide answers that work and that make it possible for you to reach your goals faster and easier than ever. 

See them here. Talk with them there.

I want to introduce you to them in this blog so you’ll know exactly who to go to over the next couple of days of Inspire. There’s one group you can get to know by their blogs. Click on the title to access the blog:

 Speak dating

Here are some of the other HPE experts you can meet at the event. And remember, HPE does not take a speed dating approach to our conversations with you.
