After completing a tremendous Discover 2017 Madrid, HPE announced several significant new products, software and services offerings, which were received very positively from the press, analysts, and customers. HPE has the right strategy, innovation, and team to make 2018 a very successful year.

To add to that momentum, HPE has great news to share – Gartner published its annual Vendor Rating in December 2017, and upgraded HPE’s overall rating to Positive (from Variable last year), and also upgraded HPE to Positive in Strategy & Product / Service. HPE also scored Positive on Support / Account Management, Pricing Structure, and Technology / Methodology.



HPE has completed a significant restructuring in its PC/printer business, its enterprise services business and its software business, with plans for further business optimization. HPE is now focusing on a three-pronged strategy: hybrid IT, intelligent edge, and advisory and implementation services.

HPE spent considerable time with Gartner over the past year to educate them on vital new offerings like HPE OneSphere, HPE InfoSight, and HPE GreenLake, and to explain how acquisitions like Cloud Cruiser, CTP, Niara, Nimble, and Simplivity fit into HPE’s broader plan.
