TOP PRIORITY #2 for 2012: Mobility/Digital Media & Converged Infrastructure

When we kicked-off 2012, I did a lot of reading and researching about the top tread predications that would shape the coming year. I concluded that the most important ‘first top priority’ was to ask the question: “How does infrastructure convergence affect me, help my clients, and what can I do to become a change agent”.

Now that we are one month in to the New Year, the next hot topic I believe every IT person needs to get a handle on is: Mobility / Digital Media. I’m not talking about the obvious things like tweeting until your fingers go numb, adding more mobile apps to your smart phone, or getting in line to get a piece of the Facebook IPO. I am talking about the enterprise IT engine behind the scenes. The fact is, data center efficiency is the heart and blood-line for capitalizing in the digital age. In other words, ask yourself:  How can your organization build the simplicity and agility into your infrastructure to handle mobility on this unprecedented scale?

If you’re in IT, you may have already recognized the importance of this and you also know there’s a whole lot more to deal with. E.g. see >> Big data security and protection; turning that data into business intelligence; having an effective data analytics engine in a ‘context-aware’ manner; and, the need to overcome IT complexity and sluggishness by adding more simplicity and automation to ‘speed-up’ IT’s ability to ‘move and adapt’ quickly.


If you fundamentally agree with this premise, one-mans-view is not enough. Thus, I have pulled together some good articles and information from some very smart people that I think would be extremely helpful and informative for you to explore:



From a big picture perspective, this is exactly why we introduced the HP Converged Infrastructure strategy over two years ago. I really do think it would be worth your time to explore our Converged Infrastructure portfolio. After all, it’s our business to understand your issues, challenges and business environment so we can bring ‘technology and innovation’ to you ... so you can achieve the results you expect – both today and far into the future.


Thank you for your time,
