Beyond the tipping point: How Converged Systems will transform everything you do in IT


Session BB4423 – Weds 12th June 12:00 – Palazzo O


In 2009 HP invented the concept of Converged Infrastructure. Since then Converged Infrastructure has become embedded in all HP enterprise offerings and it has changed how our customers do business. In 2013 we are experiencing a dramatic increase in demand for Converged Systems that take Converged Infrastructure to the next level. These are products that use Converged Infrastructure to combine servers, storage networking and software so companies can deploy faster, achieve more, and solve unique problems. In April HP announced the formation of the new Converged Systems Business Unit, a significant investment in development of products for virtualization, private cloud, big data, analytics, end user computing, next generation management and other areas. In three years, HP has built tremendous success, experience and market momentum with our Converged Systems offerings like CloudSystem and SAP HANA appliance. The new Converged Systems Business Unit will build on that experience and drive the Convergence revolution for the next decade. In this session Tom Joyce, SVP and GM of HP Converged Systems, will introduce the new organization, present some of the current products, and talk about future directions for converged management and CloudSystem.
