Adventure awaits at SpiceWorld 2018 with HPE as your guide


If you are the typical IT professional for a small or medium size business (SMB), the daily grind might be getting you down. But wait. You CAN find adventure at work! Engage with fellow SMB IT wizards at SpiceWorld 2018 to find out how. 

HPE SMB_SpiceWorld 2018_adventure_blog.jpgHow do you define adventure?For some, adventure means extreme mountain biking. For others, it’s travelling to an exotic venue to sample the local cuisine. But if you are the typical SMB IT pro, there are THOSE days that your worklife might hold less-exciting exploits. That means it’s time to spice up your professional persona at SpiceWorld 2018.

What’s SpiceWorld you might query? Well, if you have to ask, you’ve been slaving away in the server room too long. This year's event will be held in Austin, Texas, October 8th through 10th, when SpiceWorks brings together thousands of IT professionals and hundreds of technology vendors for practical how-to demonstrations, informative sessions, the opportunity to network with like-minded professionals, and—of course—to have some fun. It’s a great balance of learning and entertainment, and as a Diamond Sponsor, HPE considers it a “must attend” conference for those small and midsize IT managers who want to be at the top of their IT game.

New product and solutions designed specifically for SMBs

Speaking of HPE, we’ll  be sharing some see-it-here-first products and solutions at the event that are specifically tailored for the SMB audience. Attendees will have an opportunity to get the inside scoop on these creative new ways to simplify and better secure their business at a technical session that will be held October 9th, from 12:30pm -12:50pm, in the Tech Talk Theater. Are you one of those people who always wishes you could touch the animals when you go to the zoo? Good news! You can play with the “animals” in the petting zoo corner of our booth. Get your hands on the new HPE ProLiant ML110 Gen10 and HPE ProLiant ML350 Gen10 running Microsoft solutions for small to medium-sized businesses.

With over 25 thousand experts in over 80 countries, HPE Pointnext has the skills and expertise to support you during every stage of your IT journey.

New technical training videos for the busy IT professional

It took 20,000 workers with nearly 1,000 elephants—and nearly 22 years—to construct the Taj Mahal. As an IT pro in a smaller business, we know you don’t have anywhere near that much support or time. But one of the reasons you thrive in an SMB environment is because you’re a “knows your stuff” kind of IT expert who can (and must!) do it all. Whether you’re in the jungle of the server room, or scaling the Machu Picchu of hardware, you have your career map and technical smarts, and you know exactly where you are going. It never hurts, though, to have a little help from trusted friends or an experienced sherpa guide, and that’s why we have designed a new online video series of technical training, “Adventures in SMB”, especially for the IT professional in an SMB environment. Covering topics that include setting up your storage server, creating a multi-layer security plan, deploying hybrid cloud or a virtual environment, among others, you will find the series to be relevant to several of the challenges you may face in a small to medium size business.  Find out more at SpiceWorld!

Compete for prizes during "Adventures in Excellence" scavenger hunt

“Adventures in SMB” at SpiceWorld includes a scavenger hunt. Once you meet your Adventure Guide and take a selfie in the HPE booth, you’ll have nine or more onsite activities to complete to qualify for an insulated tumbler—or even the grand prize of a home server!

The long and short of it? You can find career adventure around every corner—and it definitely awaits you at SpiceWorld in Austin, Texas, October 8th, 9th, and 10th.  What are you waiting for?
