"When you need us most, we are there for you," said HP Enterprise Services VP, John Visentin in his keynote at the HP Discover conference. A common theme that emerged throughout his presentation were outcomes that mattered to customers whether it be New Zealand recovering from an earthquake disaster or lives being saved by the Navy Marine Corps. Visentin also outlined the manner in which Enterprise Services works with HP customers to bring it all together -- everything that has been talked about at the HP Discover conference keynotes including Dave Donatelli taming the IT lion across servers, storage and networks or Bill Veghte outlining the innovative enhancements and additions made to the HP Software Suite or Stouffer Egan taking the meaning of meaning to the third dimension. To the HP customer, it is all about having a complete solution -- the right solution that directly addresses their business problem in a holistic fashion bringing to bear all the right enabling components that HP has to offer.
In Visentin's words, HP Services "helps HP matter to the world" by doing the following for its 1000 business and government clients across 90 countries:
- Manages 183 cloud environments, 300K servers and more than 100 petabytes
- Detects 3,120,000 viruses annually
- Deals with 15 million IP addresses and 47 million user names/passwords
- Processes 2.4 Billion healthcare transactions and 13 billion credit card transactions annually
Building upon its experience working with the airline industry, HP Services has poised the airline industry for taking off into the Cloud. So, it was no surprise that Visentin showed a video of Bob Edwards, CIO, United Airlines sharing first hand, the positive experience they had with the services HP provided. HP Services provides solutions that board more than 500 million passengers per year.
Enterprises today have a myriad array of choices across multiple architectural layers whether it be servers, software, networks, and storage and then you throw in various deployment models like the optimal mix of cloud environments. Enterprises need a partner they can work with and trust to be their Transformation GPS.
Which is why Visentin said, "When you need us, we are there for you."
