Two great destinations: VMworld and Hybrid IT

By Bernadina Mickey 

If you’re going to VMworld being held from August 27 – 30, why not make major progress on your journey to Hybrid IT transformation at the same time by attending HPE activities while you are there?

Hybrid IT is definitely the way to go, since it combines the right mix of traditional IT, private cloud, and public cloud to meet your business and IT goals, so you can integrate new technologies where needed and maintain legacy systems where appropriate. HPE makes the transformation faster and easier by providing the technology and expertise to say ‘YES’ to your business with the right mix of Hybrid IT.
