The finish line is up ahead, but there's still more to do with Microsoft at HP Discover Barcelona


by Beth Bartel


It’s been a great rally.  We’ve all covered a course that included spotlight sessions on how to make Windows Server 2003 migration seamless, effective and disruption free, as well as security from the hacker or criminal’s point of view.  

We also made stops at sessions that provided us with the latest and best information on joint HP – Microsoft solutions in areas such as advanced analytics, UCC, mobility, Big Data, Windows 10, and more. In each one, I saw ways that these solutions could definitely make it easier for just about any business to reach its goals … not just for today, but for years to come. While the finish line is almost in sight, there are still insights to be gained from the Microsoft activities and  sessions on Day 3 of HP Discover Barcelona.  
Security is one of those complex issues that you can never learn too much about. That’s why Microsoft is presenting another security-focused session on Thursday, December 4 at 9:00 a.m.:  IT6680: Cyber Security: It’s not if, but when!   Brett Arsenault, Microsoft VP and CISO, will present a practitioner’s view on the Microsoft environment. He will share how the organization works together to protect the enterprise and its customers, and how Microsoft collaborates with and leverages partners like HP to help ensure its security. Brett will address the issues, threats and risks in today’s rapidly evolving security and cybercrime landscape .

There will also be one breakout session at 10:00 a.m.: B6571: Winning the mobile enterprise voice user with Lync.

As with previous days, you can stop by Microsoft booth #502 in Hall 5 of the Discover Zone at any time and see joint HP | Microsoft solutions in action, including:

  • SDN with Microsoft Lync
  • HP Devices running Windows OS
  • Windows Server 2003 Migration
  • HP Converged System for Microsoft Analytics Platform System

Even though this is the last day, there’s no need for the learning and discovery about HP –Microsoft solutions to end.  Check out the resources below that you can use anytime to get more information on existing solutions and learn about new ones.

Thanks for running the Microsoft Discover Barcelona rally and coming out a winner!
