HP Composable Infrastructure supports both traditional and the New Style of Business applications


The traditional model runs packaged back-office and non-revenue generating applications designed to automate the business. Examples include enterprise resource planning (ERP), online transaction processing (OLTP), and communication and collaboration apps (e.g. email and Lync). This model operates in conventional, steady-state environment that focuses on minimizing risk through standard methodologies, conventional vendors, and strong governance.


The New Style of Business model, on the other hand, operates mobile, big data, and cloud applications and services in a nonlinear, high-speed mode that requires low latency and can continuously adapt to high levels of uncertainty and change. The New Style of Business model is particularly adept at:
•Creating new sources of revenue and markets
•Monetizing data and services
•Enabling disruptive innovation
•Enriching end-user experiences
•Innovating, differentiating, and increasing customer loyalty
•Rapidly deploying new services
•Developing applications on a nearly continuous basis


The differences between these two models are numerous and fundamental, which may lead you to ask: How can your IT organization balance the resources and investments needed to keep core legacy systems up and running while also creating value by integrating the new technologies needed to keep the business competitive and growing?


HP envisions a new class of infrastructure to service both traditional IT and the New Style of Business. The white paper, HP Composable Infrastructure – Bridging Traditional IT with the New Style of Business, describes the challenge of today’s IT organizations in moving forward, what HP Composable Infrastructure is, and what it can do for you.


Moving to a composable infrastructure is an incremental, not all-or-nothing, process. Getting started with HP OneView, HP ConvergedSystem, HP BladeSystem, and adding HP’s Composable Infrastructure API (Unified API) establishes a level of composability and infrastructure as code that can immediately begin reducing costs and increasing administrative efficiencies. Composable infrastructure’s ability to disaggregate and re-aggregate underlying blocks of infrastructure means the investments made today can be built upon in the future.


Only HP can bring the hardware, software, services, and partner ecosystem needed to deliver an end-to-end offering with a single point of accountability. Available now under Project Synergy are the Unified API and participation by Alliance One members in the HP Composable Infrastructure Partner Program.
