I just celebrated my third anniversary of working from home.   Initially the adjustment was difficult,  but since my team is distributed across the globe, sitting in an on-site office all day just didn’t make sense.  Instead, I now enjoy a view of the woods from my office window and spend my lunchtime taking my dog for a walk (a healthy break for both of us).  I find I’m more productive and focused because my life is far more balanced despite the fact that I actually work longer hours.

Everything you need to know about Converged Systems in 30 minutes

HP Converged Systems were a major talking point for customers and partners at HP Discover, which should be no surprise as, according to a recent study, IDC estimates that the overall spending on converged systems will grow at 54.7 percent (CAGR), from $2.0 billion in 2011 to $17.8 billion in 2016.


According to Jed Scaramella, research manager, IDC Enterprise Server Group,"The use of converged systems as an alternative to traditional procurement and delivery models will continue to be one of the most important developments in the evolution of IT infrastructure market."


So, if you're looking to get more information on this rapidly growing space and you're short of time, we have just the solution for you in the video below.

8,000 customers from 90 countries gathered together on Tuesday in Las Vegas to hear from HP about how our latest innovations are helping to shape the industry.


Meg Whitman’s main message on stage at the evening keynote was that HP’s driving ambition is to be the best company to partner with in the industry, for customers, ISV’s and solution providers.


For Converged Systems this is critical to everything we do, as we optimize systems in partnership with industry leading software vendors to deliver the best customer experience for Cloud, Virtualization, Big Data and Collaboration workloads, and this was the theme of the announcements we made at the outset of the show.
