SMBs were invited to join HPE Transformation Advisors at the Transformation Zone to discuss hybrid IT solutions that are streamlining operations, enhancing end-to-end performance, and empowering digital innovation, all at an affordable price. At the Transformation Experience Workshop, business leaders had the opportunity to explore technologies that facilitate IT management, automation, and modernization. Through a series of in-depth interactive sessions, HPE leaders helped SMBs create a customized strategic roadmap to guide today’s technological investments and drive future innovation. Attendees were asked to define their business goals in order to align IT priorities with Just Right IT solutions well-suited to their business requirements.
