Converged Infrastructure

'Convergence’ is still all about BUSINESS OUTCOMES. Today is a day of remembrance.

Hi all –

 

I came across this blog yesterday by Duncan Campbell (VP, WW Marketing, Converged Infrastructure) titled ‘How To Train Your Dragon 2 Is the Next Technological Innovation’ and it made me think about how vital the words and phrases really are that we use to describe HP Converged Infrastructure. Things like ‘simplicity’, ‘business aligned’, ‘innovation’, ‘speed’, ‘uptime assurance’, ‘greater performance’, ‘reduced cost’, ‘less risk’, ‘greater investment protection’ ... and so on.

 

But it also made me think (or simply remind me) that it’s the customer outcomes that really matter – it’s all about customer value at every level: From HP to your IT ... from IT to the Business Units ... from the BUs to the customer ... and let’s not forget about partners at all levels. Thus, I wanted to take a ‘time out’ and remember why we do what we do. Duncan’s blog goes into detail about how HP solutions support all areas of DreamWorks Animation’s production to help them (e.g. help the artists) continually dazzle and amaze their customers (e.g. movie-going audiences) – it’s a good read. But I also wanted to invite you to take a few minutes and hear from a wider-variety of our Converged Infrastructure customers.

Thanks for your time,

Russ
