3 types of Converged Solutions deliver IT convergence without worry

HP offers 3 types of converged solutions:  HP CloudSystems, HP AppSystems, and HP VirtualSystem.     Whether you are evaluating integrated systems or exploring how innovative technologies such as 3PAR or HP Moonshot will address a specific need, HP solutions and expertise can help you move quickly.

3 tips every IT staff should consider as they move to IT convergence

We know that there are major IT shifts every 10-15 years and we have all seemed to successfully survive at least one or more of the recent trends:  mainframe, client server computing, and the birth of the internet.   The next wave of changes rapidly approaching is all about cloud, mobility and big data.   Today many of you are evaluating products and solutions that promise IT convergence to help you handle this wave of change.   Another critical factor to evaluate is the actual skillset of the IT staff. 

Data migration — not your full-time job?

By Francis Scarfi, Worldwide Product Manager, Data Migration and Data Replication Consulting


My DIY home renovation project didn’t turn out as I planned. Now I see that it’s like migrating your data to new storage systems. It’s safer and faster to hire experts to do it.

A stellar mobility strategy ... for desktops!

As Terry White pointed out at this blog last year (see this post), desktop virtualization is attracting a lot of attention – and for good reason. It can help organizations “lower costs, improve security, and enable secure remote access from a variety of devices,” Terry noted.


Over at Transforming IT blog, mobility expert Jordan Whitmarsh has been arguing that client virtualization is something else again: It’s a crucial opportunity to bring the desktop into the age of mobility.

A strategic approach to asset recovery: good for the environment, good for your bottom line

About this time last year, Russ Parker pointed out at this blog that a well considered plan for recovering value from end-of-life IT assets can accelerate an organization’s drive to convergence (see Top three ways ASSET RECOVERY can fast track your journey to a Converged Infrastructure.) A strategic approach, Russ noted, can help you improve business processes related to disposal, simplify global compliance, and protect your company’s reputation.
