Why Attend the HP ExpertOne Technology & Solutions Summit (ETSS)?


HP ETSS_HP ExpertOne, Training, Exams, Certification.jpg


Before trying to convince your boss think about what is going on in your company now, and where your company is heading in the future?


Twice a year HP holds ETSS. These central European training conferences are becoming increasingly important for the HP Channel. The pressure is also high on other IT vendors to regularly train the engineers as well as sales and marketing teams of their distributors & resellers as technologies and the IT market are undergoing a tremendous transformation in the past few years. (CRN Germany, 2014) 


Therefore is it time for your company to evaluate new solutions and understand how The New Style of IT can help with this? ETSS training covers Cloud, Networking, Storage, Servers and Data Centre architecture solutions, and the timing of 290 technical sessions allows you to create a personalized learning experience by selecting a mix of sessions and lab demo’s that you want to attend.  Choose sessions that you want to develop your skills further in, such as HP Helion, HP Gen9 and HP OneView.


“Labs “à la carte” are excellent! The attendee has freedom to choose: either to dive deep into one special system / solution and 'play' with it or to run “just” the lab guide and the correspondent scriptlets to achieve a comprehensive understanding of implementing the solution (Cimander, 2014).


Review the classes, hands on labs and guest speakers and make a list of the reasons why that would be useful to attend for your company.  Such as, latest trends, real word solutions, and demo’s of new technologies.


Dedicated time for education

Is there a big job that requires new skills?  Does your firm have job openings, that attending ETSS will help you apply for?


The beauty of attending ETSS is the opportunity for focused learning. The certification tracks offer a dedicated 4* days of training for your chosen certification track, plus the opportunity to take one exam at the HP ExpertOne testing center, making you a step closer to that next job.  Exams are provided at no extra cost and include course material and 2 HP Press Books.


HP Certification Tracks February 2015 only:

  1. ASE/MASE: Creating Software-Defined Networks (Course 00851824)
  2. ASE/MASE: Building FlexFabric Datacenters (Course 00908176)

Not only will completion of the certification tracks help your company meet part of their certification requirements for FY15 Silver or Gold Networking specialization it will also enable you to progress to the Master ASE certification before the upcoming deadline.


Why not schedule some time with your boss once you return to show what you have achieved keeping yourself “top of mind” for that next job opportunity.


“Meet the Geeks”

ETSS is a place where all experts come together, a fantastic opportunity to network with colleagues, peers and over 500 HP Presales engineers.


Learning is about making connections not only within the New Style of IT but also with your peers. 


As a result of the feedback received after the last ETSS, we are introducing a new “Meet the Geeks” session.  In this new session you can talk technology with the HP Experts 1-to-1 scheduling your talk time via the booking tool opening in December.


Regional sessions

Talk to your peers in other companies, discuss their problems which could be unique to your sub-region or country and understand how they solved them.  Again new this year is the opportunity to meet your sub region IT peers and discuss local initiatives and priorities, led by HP Presales sub region managers.


Use the above to tell your boss how ETSS can foster networking enabling you to meet people, and ask if there are any specific contacts or questions your boss would like answered on their behalf.
