HP WorldTour provides an opportunity to not only learn about new technologies but also offers the chance to speak to the HP experts. Today we were proud to be in Toronto, Canada. Charlie Atkinson, VP of HP Enterprise Group Canada and Lloyd Bryant, Printing and Personal Systems VP & GM and Managing Director of HP Canada gave us a warm welcome. They highlighted the trends that are prevalent in the technology industry, as well as a general vision on how HP is addressing this new phase, which was called the New Style of IT.


Time was spent discussing the  4 pillars of the New Style of IT.

  • Big Data: How HP HAVEn helps managing large volumes of structured, unstructured, semi-structured and traditional transactional data.
  • Cloud: How computing is changing how IT develops and delivers services today.
  • Security: We learnt how to keep proper risk management policies and maintaining security at its best.
  • Mobility: An interesting insight about how new devices are changing traditional businesses’ transaction.


 There were some insightful discussions on HP Converged Infrastructure solutions–with the general consensus being the solution does in fact “Make IT SIMPLE.” HP Specialists addressed:


  • Chet Jacobs, Chief Storage Evangelist presented the new tendencies in HP Converged Storage, a more dynamic and integrated way of managing your data.


  • Tom Williams, SDN & Data Center Strategy, HPN Americas explained the evolution of network, and the importance of deploying a software-defined networking.


  • Helen Tang, Worldwide Lead – HP Converged Infrastructure solution spoke of the importance and capabilities of software-defined servers, in other words, the importance of more power in computing.


  • LaMills Garrett, Category Manager for HP Converged Systems Americas surprised us with HP Converged Systems, which is somewhat like an instant converged infrastructure.



In addition, Kate Swanborg, Head of Technology Communications and Strategic Alliances at DreamWorks Animation concluded the day’s event with highlighting the partnership between HP and DreamWorks Animation. We got to see some scenes for upcoming movies. She finally emphasized how the relationship with HP is based in innovation.


Today was great day in which we got to know a little more about how HP helps customers to successfully embrace the new style of IT.
