The builders guide to the New Style of IT: An application-centric approach (HP Discover 2014)

Are you moving key applications and business services to the cloud? Are you delivering new mobile services to your customers, employees, or citizens? Do you need them integrated with your existing applications and business services?

 

Chances are you answered “Yes!” to all of the above.

 

Chances are you’ve already discovered that approaching these in an ad hoc fashion is a recipe for confusion and perhaps even disaster.

 

We recommend you take a builders approach, with architectural and proactive methods, in order to thrive in the new Style of IT.

 

A builder doesn’t start by tinkering. A builder defines the building they want to have. They understand completely (down to the foundation and structural element) what they are starting with. They develop the plans to transform, to modernize, to destroy and re-build, and to build anew. Then they implement these plans with an organized and optimized plan in order to realize the building they want to have.

 

That’s the approach you need to take with your applications, as you deal with mobility and cloud.

 

Plan to attend this session, “The builders guide to the New Style of IT: An application-centric approach” on Tuesday, June 10th. You’ll learn the steps you should take in order to transform and modernize your IT environment to support and exploit and thrive with the New Style of IT.

 

Please join us in Las Vegas!

So your organization needs to become more agile, customer focused, service enabled, and cost efficient. But how do you get there? Where do you start?

Attend this session to discover how “The builders guide to the New Style of IT” takes an application-centric view of what can be done, what needs to done, and how you can do it.

Thanks, Nandan

Hi Nandan,

 

I know the session slides are available for registered HP Discover attendees to download and review afterwards.

 

The sessions themselves are not recorded, I don't believe.

 

If you're interested in having HP talk with you directly, send your email address to me (John.Bennett@hp.com) and I'll follow up with you, and my colleagues in your region, to work something out.

 

Regards,

John
