Good morning, Las Vegas

By:  Daniel Amor, EMEA Lead for Application Modernisation, Hewlett Packard Company


lasvegas.jpgIt's HP Discover time again! And we are all excited about the news that it will bring to the application transformation community. Especially on the topic of application transformation to cloud with focus on HP's Helion announcement. We expect some big announcements from Meg and the leadership team today, about which I will talk after the closure of day 1. In the mean time, I want to highlight one annoucement that was made yesterday by HP's Christian Verstraete:


Resulting from years of experience advising our customers, we created a simple tool to give you a first hint of what makes sense. We call it apps-to-go. Answer al 32 questions of a questionnaire and you’ll receive a report showing you the platform that is best suitable for your application, using 12 key criteria. If you would be interested in using this online tool, please find all additional information at Christian's blog.


Today brings 8 sessions on Application Transformation, which we want to highlight here:
