HP Propel World Cup ready to kick-off at HP Discover

VesnaS ‎05-13-2014 10:19 AM - edited ‎10-04-2015 08:56 PM

There are some monumental changes occurring in IT today. When it comes to service management there are three major focuses for these changes:

  • IT as a service broker
  • User experience in the age of customer-driven IT
  • Multi-supplier management 




If these are important topics to you, I encourage you to attend the 2014 HP Propel world cup to learn more about them. The event will begin at HP Discover, on June 10 in Las Vegas.


We know that you want your IT to stay important and relevant for your business. Unfortunately when your line-of-businesses purchase diverse technologies without discussing it first with you it puts everyone at risk. To help keep up with the number of technologies, you may have tried to increase the number of external suppliers you have, but you could not manage it and there were no positive outcomes. You need HP Service Exchange.

Trying to manage multiple suppliers without Service Exchange is like trying to play soccer without a coach. It is impossible. To learn what HP Service Exchange is and how it can help you, plan on attending the Propel matches at HP Discover – we guarantee you will win each time and have a great time.

Here is the complete schedule of games for the 2014 HP Propel world cup at Discover, including kickoff times:










Here is the brief overview of all the Propel plays.

BB3007 A single portal and service catalog for unified ITSM and cloud service management

Speakers: Vesna Soraic, HP; Amanda Roberts, HP

Today’s IT departments face more demands than ever. IT must continually control costs, while also accelerating delivery of new services, and managing an expanding and increasingly diverse IT supply chain. At the same time, enterprise users are becoming more demanding. They want relevant products and services delivered faster. They are empowered by cloud-based services that offer Always-On availability. And in some cases, they bypass IT and get their own services. IT needs solutions that will help them provide a consumerized online shopping experience—delivering the right services to the right people at the right time. Join us at this session to hear how HP Propel can help you:

  • Transform your IT organization into a true IT service broker
  • Enable rapid service delivery by providing self-service to your enterprise users
  • Identify the immediate impact of a fully-integrated services framework
  • Onramp these new capabilities for free, with no disruption to your current systems

DF3117             Enabling IT as a service broker with the Service Catalog

Speaker: Felix Fernandez, HP PSO

Supplier sprawl is a reality. Today’s IT departments work with more suppliers than ever, with contracts increasing in volume, complexity, and importance to the business. Business users expect IT to deliver the same consumer experience they enjoy in their private lives—one-stop shop for all services, independent of whether the services are delivered internally or by a supplier. At the same time, the business demands agility to integrate new value-added services, many of them available from very specialized suppliers. This session will offer guidance and best practices to help you transform the Service Catalog to an enabler of IT as a service broker.
