Feed Your Need for Speed: Join HPE Pointnext at HPE Discover 2018

Today’s business objectives (scale, growth, deploying new technologies), all center on speed. When Ana PinczukSVP and GM of HPE Pointnext, was asked in a recent interview how she would explain the explosive growth of “as-a-service” IT models, this was her answer:

“Speed. The business is pushing IT to provide everything they want and need – real time analytics, advanced apps, rapid scalability – and as quickly as possible. They can get that from the cloud, but can’t afford to give up the control they get with on-premises IT. So, the perfect balance is a consumption-based, as-a-service model that accelerates business value, frees up capital and simplifies day-to-day operations on-premises.”37829367925_007c0b1da0_k LARGE.jpg

Ana will be talking about this consumption model and much more at HPE Discover 2018 Las Vegas, coming up June 19–21. Here are thumbnail descriptions of her sessions, plus a few more that will appeal to anyone looking for ways to build faster, more agile IT (these are just a sampler of the many ways to learn more about HPE Pointnext  at HPE Discover; you can find the compete Discover catalog here
