HPE Discover 2019 Las Vegas Day 1: Check out the major OEM highlights!

The wait is over; the big day is finally here as HPE Discover 2019 Las Vegas kick-started on June 18th. And much like the last year, the Day 1 at Discover 2019 was action-packed and very eventful with over 10,000 customers in attendance and more of thought-provoking sessions, hands-on demos, and networking opportunities across the show. Discover is an amazing opportunity to engage with customers and partners to drive pipeline opportunity and revenue growth for HPE. The HPE OEM Solutions Hub is playing a huge role this year. The hub hosted 12 customers and live demos, including LUCD, Superloop, Sync-n-Scale, IoT.nxt, and Konica Minolta - all touching on successful use cases around hybrid cloud, Intelligent Edge, and HPE Greenlake in a variety of industry verticals.

Discover 2019 Las Vegas featured the HPE OEM Hub (DEMO # 1008) in a big way, as well as working as a central point for many in-depth discussions and meetings. Attendees got personalized tours on the show floor & were able to see real-world solutions which were aimed to change the way we live and work. They also got the chance to interact with dozens of HPE OEM technology and application experts. Here are more details about all the major highlights & happenings at HPE Discover 2019:

  • At one of the Transformation Zone demos, HPE addressed key space challenges by bringing high performance computing capabilities to space explorers with the Spaceborne Computer, empowering them to be self-sufficient.
