User interfaces make the difference in many apps

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


mikenefkens.jpgDay 2 focussed a lot on cloud applications and the user experience of applications.


The morning session kicked off with the key note sessions of the HP business unit leaders. George Khadifa presented a new solution for writing mobile apps across multiple platforms as well as new applications on top of the HAVEn Big Data platform. Mike Nefkens spoke about the leading-edge application modernisation capabilities in HP and announced that SAP HANA is now available as a service through HP Enterprise services. A lot more products and services were announced during the morning key note.


After the business unit key note session, Paul Evans kicked off the Application Transformation Track key note and presented our HP view on the state of applications and how it needs to be modernised to accomodate the future needs of business organisations.


BMliJYuCAAEjagz.jpg large.jpgIrene Dudgeon and Traci Terterian introduced the concepts of the user experience and its importance for modern applications. Parminder Sohal and John Jeremiah provided some insight on how HP helps customers to design, develop and deploy mobile applications. Then it was Paul Evans' turn to talk more about the integration of apps on a global level, with Eitan Katz and Carleen Christner going into more details o the same topic. Jonathan Dove and Sean O’Leary talked about how to manage successfully the transformation journey towards a cloud-friendly environment.


The day was concluded with Tom Hall and Jon Bailey showing how HP helps customers to develop applications for the cloud, and in the cloud. Those are just some of the application related topics that were presented today. In addition to this, there were some major announcements made with regards to new Cloud Service Offerings, which I'll explain tomorrow morning in my next post in more detail.


The second day of HP Discover has been very exciting and I'm looking forward to the news and announcements tomorrow.
