Transforming to newer frontiers at HP Discover with fellow bloggers

I looked forward to hosting my first blogger Coffee Talk at HP Discover. I was eager when I chose the topic of Transforming Applications to new Frontiers. As I outlined in an introductory post, over the years, Applications Transformation methodology has reached a steady state. But today we are in a world where there are several more options available to us, and we need to synthesize those in a systemic manner. So, what is different about Applications Transformation going forward? This set the stage for the discussion.


First, I must acknowledge the bloggers who participated. Many thanks to Hans De Leenheer, Big Data, Luigi Tiano, Ernesto Pellegrino, Andrea Cummins, Robin Harris, @renebuest, Sam Johnston, Chris Wahl, Patrick Husband, Martin Mcleod, Fabio Rapposelli, Ben Kepes, Paul Miller. If you are interested in the new style of IT—and are not already following these bloggers—I highly recommend their work.

After I set the context for the informal discussion, the first few questions were raised around HP's positioning of its cloud solutions. I was a bit surprised, but we carried on. I had intended this to be a discussion about the industry in general rather than a specific vendor's positioning of its solutions—including HP. In retrospect, the entire Coffee Talk could have been a mixed bag of the industry observations in general with specific discussion points around HP—something I look forward to doing the next time around.


Here are some summary points from the spirited discussion:


It was a great experience. I felt like I was in a Twitter Chat except the tweets were verbal!


How about you? What thoughts come to your mind as it relates to transforming applications? What are your observations on the thoughts summarized above? Please let me know.


Wishing all the bloggers who attended the Coffee Talk a very happy holiday and a joyous New Year.
