The Internet of Things (IoT) data is only a portion of the flow of data, much of it personal in nature that has regulatory and privacy implications. Most of the data will have a value half life with value that may deteriorate over time. This will force processes that determine what data to keep and what data to remove - with consequences for those decisions that may have implications for the organization spanning many years.

HP's Stephan Spector introduces an expert guest on Cloud Service Automation, John McDermott, EMEA Portfolio Manager, Cloud Educations Services.
Cloud computing resources are so easy to mobilize that it's easy to misjudge the interaction and implications of interactions of private and public clouds spread around the world. John McDermott explains the role that HP simulation tools can play helping real world customers manage the planning surrounding deployment of workloads, regardless of the origin of the application, either on private or public cloud or in a managed asset environment.
Simak Nazari, from HP 3PAR provides an overview of unique architecture for HP 3PAR storage that allows exceptional storage scalability for HP Customers equaled by no other competitor. the 3PAR StoreServ family is the only product set in the industry to span midrange, high-end, and all flash systems.
Simak led the efforts at 3PAR developing the storage architecture, and faced significant challenges. In addition to changes in component parts that were resulting in incredible advancements in both rotating media and solid state drives, 3PAR engineers also had to cope with. For example, smaller systems have much fewer resources in CPU and memory than multi-CPU enterprise systems, as well as differing CPU management schemes.
Many of HP competitors offer ranges of performance in latency and IOPS - requiring a reset to move to a more complex system. HP 3PAR capabilities are explained further at http://hp.com/storage .
Jim Cooper and J.D. Detling , Distinguished Technologies from HP Enterprise services addressing needs of both large and midsize HP Customers moving hundreds or thousands of legacy applications to mobile enabled versions that better address customer needs.
HP Enterprise services allow customers to proactively proceed in the journey within these four business drivers: Cloud, Mobility, Security and Big Data
Some enterprises are still allowing their IT department to set process oriented policies and application decisions. Moving these customers into a rapid and agile deployment in a business centric approach is a primary task for this unit of IT. Under the New Style of IT, departments must make decisions with the goal of increasing market share, customer loyalty, and attracting young talent that is accustomed to a high level of service.
The new style of IT has a number of elements. Moving from legacy desktop to smartphones has been a wake-up call for many legacy organizations. Tablets - not necessarily the operating system but focus upon how the application engages with the user. Cloud, mobility, and big data challenges around the world are dependent upon understanding the thinking process of younger IT team members and the customers that are in the same age demographic, and at the same time respecting new expectations on privacy and integrated capability.
Mike Shaw from HP Strategic Marketing provides an overview of HP's initiative to engage HP Customers and internal experts in a discussion of the future of the datacenter.
The impact of virtualization and cloud computing that are being felt today can only be expected to accelerate. Gaining business advantage becomes a major challenge when the nominal cost structure of competitors may be same as, or perhaps lower than yours. Far-sighted management must figure out how to deploy those commoditized resources in new ways to gain the agility and responsiveness required.
HP has engaged on a community basis with employees, external subject matter experts, and customers to define this new environement.
