That’s fantastic recognition for HP, but the reality of the success of HP’s cloud vision for Enterprise Infrastructure and Enterprise Applications Services is closely linked to our clients’ success and the business use cases we enable for them. Because it’s not just about how we help them provision services across a cloud infrastructure; it’s also about how our clients’ business processes are enabled in the cloud to do more of what they want to do for their customer, whether that’s faster, cheaper, or more efficiently.


Many of our clients care about outcomes such as achieving better margins with their suppliers, or delivering more product to their end customers efficiently, or making travelers happy that they arrived on time. And our cloud platform and related applications services are important enablers to realize our clients’ vision.


In August, HP highlighted the launch of the new HP as a Service Offering for SAP HANA, which ties directly to our cloud offerings, we recently announced the rollout of the Enterprise Services Virtual Private Cloud (VPC) 5.0 for Oracle and SAP, and we envision many more of our Enterprise Applications offerings moving towards a consumption-based model in the cloud, as clients move to the New Style of IT.


Leading researchers at Everest Group say that we’re “Leaders” and “Major Contenders” in these areas. What do you think? Is it the enterprise cloud infrastructure or enterprise cloud applications that are more valuable to your business goals?
