Expand your Opportunities with HP and Microsoft at WPC

In just a couple of days, I’ll be headed to my first Microsoft Worldwide Partner Conference (WPC). This is a unique conference in that it is led by Microsoft partners for partners.  Attendees will have many opportunities to preview and hear the latest and greatest innovations from many companies. 


If you’ll be at WPC, be sure and stop by the HP Booth in the Solution Innovation Center and see a demo of HP Virtual System, which won best of show at Microsoft TechEd North America in the Virtualization category. HP VirtualSystem is an appliance that reduces complexity by delivering solutions optimized for server and desktop virtualization and is a part of the HP Converged Infrastructure.


In the HP booth, you’ll also be able to talk with experts and see demos on:


  • HP Storage for Microsoft Exchange
  • Windows Server 2012 on HP ProLiant MicroServer
  • HP solutions with Microsoft Lync
  • and many more!


We’d love to show you innovations to help you speed delivery, improve client satisfaction and expand your  opportunities with HP and Microsoft. And of course connect with you to learn more about what you are facing and how HP can help.


Partner Solution Theater


The Partner Solution Theater is where partners can share solutions and success stories.  The sessions are 30-minutes (15 minutes of presentation and 15 minutes of Q&A).  HP will present two solutions in this format.


Learn about:

  • HP iQuote on Tuesday at 3:15 pm with Greg Starks
  • HP Mobility Solutions on Wednesday at 4:15 pm with Aaron Curry


Breakout Session


Don’t miss the HP iQuote breakout session and learn how you can maximize your revenue and margin.  This breakout session will be held on Wednesday from 3:30 pm – 4:40 pm, Session ID: BL48.  Greg Starks will be presenting at this breakout session.


What I’m looking forward to


From a business perspective, I’m looking forward to hearing the keynotes especially from Steve Ballmer and Jon Roskill, learning about new technologies, and increasing my knowledge on Lync and other solutions. From a personal view, I can’t wait to hear Deepak Chopra on Leadership, Courage and the Future of Wellbeing.  Another highlight will be meeting and connecting with the WPC Social Media Squad!  I am thrilled to be a part of this team! 


More blog posts will come next week on what is happening at WPC - stay tuned!
