The workplace of the future at HP Discover 2013

discover13_LithiumCommunities_banner_205x150.pngAccording to recent research, IT no longer sees 50 percent of the workforce using three or more devices for work. As we embrace the New Style of IT, consolidation of devices will be critical. In fact, IT has become “consumerized” to the point where 4.5 billion personal client devices will be on the network in 2015 and 70 percent of CIOs cited mobile technologies as the most disruptive.


Analysts are predicting that the days of work/life balance are over, as organizations strive to keep up with an always on/always productive workforce. At HP Discover 2013, in Barcelona you’ll find a breakout session devoted to new solutions that enable the successful blending of work and life.

Maintaining value from legacy applications, security challenges and ingrained business processes only add to the distress. But with careful planning and a trusted partner, your journey could be smooth sailing. Luckily, at HP Discover 2013, you’ll find a host of breakout sessions designed to help you successfully transition to the Cloud through friendly skies.   

Simplify your transformation journey to the Cloud

discover13_banner_300x250.pngNew technologies are making the Cloud more secure, flexible, and cost effective. However, no two enterprises have an identical journey to the cloud. And it is a journey. At HP Discover 2013, we’ll guide you on the business, technical and financial journey to the cloud.


Most enterprise applications are not Cloud Ready.  During our Cloud breakout sessions, we will provide insight and guidance on planning the journey and speeding the movement of key applications to new Infrastructure as a Service delivery models.  We will discuss the challenges of integrating cloud into existing IT environments and identify solutions that address security, accessibility, cost and performance concerns. 

The 3rd wave of work — decentralized workplaces


By Marleen Devondel, HP ES ITO Marketing


In an age of globalization and shifting cultural expectations, there’s a considerable amount of discussion around how to manage teams of information workers. But there does not seem to be consensus on the issue. Some say distributed workforces are collaboratively ineffective; others decry the physical office as a nest of distraction. I suppose there is truth in both.

Cloud is a priority for retailers looking to respond to changes in the marketplace, as we learned in the Winter 2013 issue of Industry Edge. But many still have doubts about the viability and security of cloud solutions.


We caught up with HP cloud specialist Spencer Knapp and HP Fellow Doug Chey to get their thoughts on this IT delivery model and the barriers that face the retail industry as they work to implement cloud options.
