Microsoft Ignite: Perfect name for an amazing event

By Sylvia McCleary

Some event names are more evocative than others … and on the evocative scale, “Ignite” is right up there with the best, along with HPE Discover, naturally. This premier Microsoft event really lives up to its name, delivering news, ideas, breakthroughs and solutions that ignite success and growth for today’s enterprises. As one of Microsoft’s strongest and longest alliance partners, HPE is once again entering into the “ignite” spirit with an excitingly strong presence at the event.

Our impressive alliance with Microsoft explains why the joint solutions we offer generate excitement AND results. These solutions and the HPE experts behind them are what we’ll have on display at the event. From the right mix of HPE and Microsoft innovations in the datacenter, the cloud and the edge … to the right expertise, partners and as-a-service models to act quickly, HPE will show you how to bring it all together to propel your enterprise further, faster. Azure Stack, SQL, IoT, Data Platform, OneView, Aruba, Synergy, Skype for Business, Exchange, Sharepoint – we’ll address them all and show you how our years of working with Microsoft mean they all deliver superior performance on HPE technology,

You’ll have the opportunity to:
• Learn how to make Hybrid IT simple, so your data and applications are always optimized and agile without compromising performance, security or control.
• Explore how to power the Intelligent Edge, to transform your customer experiences, workplaces and operations to drive more engagement, efficiency and profitability.
• Meet the experts who can make it all happen. Across every industry, in every corner of the world, HPE Pointnext and our global ecosystem of partners are here and ready to accelerate your transformation.

A lot to take in? Here’s where to start: Booth 701
There’s so much to see and do at Microsoft Ignite that it’s easy to experience a sense of FOMO. By visiting HPE Booth 701 early in the event and often, you’ll be sure not to miss out on the topics and solutions that are most important to you. At our booth, HPE will be presenting:
• Video demos of more than 25 HPE/Microsoft solutions
• 37 theater sessions addressing specific technologies and their applications. Note that these will be repeated daily

Most important, the HPE booth will be “home base” to HPE experts who will be happy to work closely with you to explore the challenges you face and then define one or more joint HPE/Microsoft solutions that will transform those challenges into opportunities. Look for blogs from each of these experts specifically addressing their specializations, as well as how they can put their knowledge and experience to use for you at Ignite.
