A Service Tailored to Deliver Peace of Mind: HPE Proactive Care



By Duncan Goode

WW Proactive Care Product Manager for HPE Pointnext

It’s always great to know that if something goes wrong in your IT environment you can get the help you need, when you need it. But even better is the confidence you get from knowing that you’re staying ahead of many potential issues and squashing them before they can put a dent in your operations. And better still is knowing that, if a problem does arise, you can quickly access expert support to resolve it.

Get an Enhanced Support Experience

If you’re looking to get a non-critical device supported, see Becky Brooks’s recent post for a quick intro (When warranty is not enough: Simplifying IT support with HPE Foundation Care). But, like many of our customers, you may be looking for that extra level of assurance. You may be running complex product sets or appliances that combine compute, storage and networking hardware and software, such as HPE hyperconverged infrastructure. You may want to keep unplanned downtime to a minimum for your business-sensitive applications. You need deeper insight into potential threats within your environment and the confidence that you can easily tap into the right technical expertise when you need it.

That’s what HPE Proactive Care Service delivers – and much more. The “Care” part of the name covers a lot more than you might expect: HPE Proactive Care is actually a powerful combination of proactive and reactive elements.HPE20160720055_800_0_72_RGB.jpgCost-effective and Simplified

HPE Proactive Care provides the key information you need to make better decisions and manage your environment efficiently. We monitor the telemetry from products connected to HPE on a 24x7 basis and send out pre‑failure alerts to help you avoid outages. We provide operational reports about firmware levels and software revision levels, and we deliver patch update recommendations to help you keep your infrastructure stable. We perform proactive scanning to provide a health check that identifies and resolves potential configuration issues. In addition, as an HPE Proactive Care customer, you can talk to a technical account manager about any of the content in these reports to get their expert insights and tailored advice on what your next steps might be. You get visibility into opportunities to improve your environment from a best practice perspective, as well as the ability to head off potential threats.

To help with day to day problems HPE Proactive Care gives you rapid access to a Technical Solution Specialist with expert technical skills who acts as your single point of contact managing your call. The TSS has a greater breadth and depth of knowledge seeing your infrastructure as much more than simply the sum of its parts. That’s a very different set of skills, one that eliminates the risk of delays because of multiple hand-offs.

The TSS manages your case from start to finish, so you never need to worry that every time you pick up the phone you’ll have to re-start the resolution process, taking your case all the way through to that all-important closure handshake. We want to make sure there are no lingering concerns, no uncompleted tasks or loose ends. Above all we want to eliminate that feeling that’s too often part of the IT support experience—that you’ve been left on your own. With Proactive Care, you’re in safe, expert hands.

We designed HPE Proactive Care, based on our many decades of support experience, to ensure that when customers need help they can get through to the right person in the fastest way possible. We wanted to provide an enhanced call experience and faster resolution. To achieve that, we built a support organization with exceptionally high levels of training, highly streamlined processes, and prioritized access on escalations. We believe it’s a service that’s unequalled in the industry.

Give your business the right edge with the right level of targeted, proactive support services
