HP Helion – a down-to-earth message from Mother Nature

It is a bright new day and the sun is shining with great pride above the clouds; radiating positive energy all the way down to the spring flowers that punctuate the tapestry of Mother Nature, the CIO of Planet Earth. The sky is splattered with varying shades of puffy white clouds (public) and other dark and mysterious clouds (private). Several others have ‘oh-so-fascinating’ shades that are just the right mix for the right segment of the landscape. No single type of cloud covers the whole sky. Because you see, Mother Nature has a new wave of thinking when it comes to the Clouds. She is a pragmatist, like some of us, and is sending a ‘down-to-earth’ message to the enterprise – a message that comes across loud and clear through HP Helion (root: “Helios,” the Greek sun god).

A New Style of IT is securely emerging in government clouds

Civilian agencies, the intelligence community, DoD, and their systems integrators are looking to capitalize on opportunities for efficiencies, reduced costs, and competitive advantage. So says the abstract for “1286 - HP's vision, strategy, and best practices for private, public, and cloud brokering in US federal IT environments,” a session by Henry Fleischmann, Chief Technologist for Federal Cloud Solutions, HP at HP Protect 2013. This session details the cloud journeys taken by enterprises, calling out its application, architecture, and the evolution and deployment of services. Moreover, the session also addresses the shift from a product-centric approach toward a service-centric private and hybrid cloud model. A New Style of IT is emerging in government-based cloud computing.

The Virtual Event that can make Change Real in your Enterprise

While I enjoy attending global conferences—such as HP Discover 2013 — in person, I also look forward to virtual events, which I attend from workplace. I especially enjoy virtual events, such as the Power to Change, sponsored by HP. If you attend this event, you’ll learn how the New Style of IT is driving change with the user at its nerve center. You can then take appropriate steps to make this change within your enterprise today to stay competitive tomorrow.

Transforming from the landscape of applications to the cloudscape of services

Cloudscape is a new word I came across in this HP newsletter on evolving to the New Style of IT (featuring Gartner research.) The newsletter asserts that the Cloud may not be the right answer for all the scenarios enterprises encounter in their transformation journey. Cloudscape represents a well-defined fabric of applications, solutions, and service providers across the right mix of cloud environments. To realize the full potential of the Cloudscape, enterprises must address key questions raised in this paper.
