After listening and working closely with our partners, we have identified specific solutions to help advise, transform, and manage our clients’ environments. This new way of looking at what we do, and how we do it, can best be summed up by thinking about the way a house functions.

Is the “Bring Your Own” paradigm unraveling?

36-20130728_05_Conference_Room_z_S4U5014.jpgShould "BYOD" be replaced with "BYOS" (Bring Your Own Stuff)?  Marc Wilkinson, Chief Technologist for Mobility & Workplace discussses the issue at hand: one device just doesn't cover it.  Single devices (smartphone) are just a fraction of the rest of the picture, or the "Stuff" in "BYOS" (smartphone, tablet, laptop, smart watch).

Bring BYOD to life by taking part in HP Discover Theater DT3579

DiscLV2014_EBC_loc_Image_Wht_RGB_72.pngEveryone knows that smartphones and tablets now dominate the market, and that their share continues to grow. Meanwhile, your employees are also mobile users, and lines between their two worlds—the home and the office—are blurring.

You must also assure your management that you have perfect command of the level of control and security that they demand.


During this session at HP Discover 2014 in Las Vegas, you’ll watch—and take part in—a demonstration of three HP Enterprise Cloud Services–Mobility options. You’ll see a live demo showing how HP makes BYOD a reality for your employees and your enterprise. 

Make data work smarter for your enterprise

DiscLV2014_EBC_loc_Image_Wht_RGB_72.pngIn today’s work environment, your employees are demanding the ability to work anywhere, at any time, using a variety of devices. This includes your company’s PCs and notebooks as well as the tablets and smartphones that they own personally. With more demand to take work outside the office comes the increased risk of having data stored locally on these devices. In response, many industries are requiring stringent data privacy, data loss prevention, data retention, and software compliance designed to safeguard sensitive data and applications when laptops or mobile devices are lost or stolen. At HP Discover 2014 in Las VegasChip Vollers, Global Product Marketing Manager for HP Enterprise Services will be discussing how to simplify the complexity of managing desktops with a flexible, profile-based approach.
