Converging Clouds over HP Discover, Las Vegas

Chris Purcell



A new style of IT is emerging.  Cloud computing is fundamentally changing the way people live and work. And just like client/server did, the changes will significantly impact Information technology – people, processes and technology.

Enterprises have been steadily embracing private and managed cloud environments and are increasingly finding use cases for the public cloud. We are past the point of the cloud being limited to shadow IT and startups. We are now entering the next wave of innovation and adoption which will drive the migration of production workloads to a cloud model and will require seamless interoperability across traditional IT to private, managed and public clouds.

But where to start, there is so much hype!  How can you cut through all the noise to find the reality, to find the right Cloud solution to fit your unique business needs?  Register now for HP Discover to learn how your organization can leverage the advantages of cloud agility and faster-time-to-service.
