Title: VP – Coverged Infrastructure
HP Enterprise Group
Duncan Campbell joins us in a summary of the main events of HP Discover 2012 in Frankfurt, from the perspective of convergence of legacy infrastructure, cloud, mobility and security. The ability to align with business, and increase investment towards innovation rather than backward looking support has enabled HP to combine best in class products along with systems. The impact of Big Data and ability to tailor and optimize to specific focuses in a converged system – integrated vertically or dispersed through the cloud – allows not only server virtualization but impacting storage, the network and business clients throughout.
Much of the discussion at HP Discover focused on keeping a business perspective rather than issues around people, technology and governance. Duncan speaks of the process used to evaluate and offer a chance to build competitive differentiators through cost savings and ability to react with speed and seize a competitive advantage.
