Differentiating Applications Transformation with a new style of IT

In her HP Discover keynote, HP CEO Meg Whitman explained a new, emerging style of IT. I kept this in mind when I walked into a session entitled: Application Transformation— the future will not be like the past (#TK12127) led byPaul Evans and Silvia Vigant. Evans characterized the changing landscape of applications for today's business from traditional Systems of Record to the disruptive Systems of Engagement. Both need to co-exist—just like the city of Frankfurt did it for me at the conference. What struck me was how well the applications transformation approach outlined in this session mapped to the new style of IT characterized by simplicity, agility, speed and cost.

Why HP Discover will matter to me

Willkommen in Deutschland! It is a bright day as I land at the Frankfurt airport, excited to attend HP Discover. I see bright displays with the HP logo, welcoming visitors to an innovative experience. As I come out to baggage claim, I see the familiar HP logo again, and my thoughts echo the current campaign slogan: Make it Matter. My first reaction is a burst of enthusiasm, followed by curiosity. And I begin to wonder why HP Discover will Make it Matter for me.

Transforming Applications to New Frontiers – Blogger Coffee Talk at HP Discover

I am heading out to HP Discover conference in Frankfurt wearing multiple hats. As an HP Distinguished Technologist, I am always interested to learn about emerging technologies from HP Software and innovative solutions from HP Labs. As an HP Cloud Advisor, I look forward to thought-leading sessions on HP's Converged Cloud solutions as well as interacting with various thought leaders in this space—such as HP blogger Christian Verstraete. And last, but not least, I look forward to meeting you—my fellow bloggers at this conference—in person! But, hold on—I’m not only meeting you. I’m actually conducting a Coffee Talk with the bloggers at the HP Conference on a topic near and dear to my heart—Transforming Applications to New Frontiers

Monitoring applications is like maintaining cars

Remember Susan with the 1930 Pontiac Coupe who has recently had some problems with her electric utility?  When she was driving her pick-up truck one day, the right wheel suddenly wobbled and came off. Scary. Good news is, her pickup-truck was towed and repaired and is back in service now. Reminds me of how applications are similar to cars. Applications also encounter problems and have to be "repaired." However, reacting to a single vehicle is one thing. Imagine the same happening in an auto-racing environment where you have several cars going at ridiculously high speeds. That is the type of applications environment that enterprises have today. And then one of them encounters a problem—a  car breaks down.
