Journey through Enterprise IT Services
In Journey through Enterprise IT Services, Nadhan, HP Distinguished Technologist, explores the IT Services industry, and discusses technology trends in simplified terms.

Cloud integration – a new platform for innovation

Cloud integration is the “third era” of IT according to Mike Nefkens, EVP of Enterprise Services at HP, in this article, How a garage-based start-up is once again redefining the way companies do business.  The agility of a Cloud based infrastructure positions enterprises to deliver on the demands of the digital customer in this new era.  Nefkens takes the example of airlines where disparate applications for reservations, baggage and flight operations do not interact with each other when there is a crisis that demands instant response.  Transforming these applications to the cloud enables seamless integration thereby driving a timely response to the customer. But, are such intersections of different domains just integrations – or can they be new platforms for innovation? Let us see.

Back to the Future of Innovation at HP Discover

HP Discover Innovation Theater sessions have always made me wonder what it takes for innovative concepts to unravel in the human brain.  Back in 1957, Issac Asimov explained that the confluence of intersecting thoughts triggers new creative ideas (thanks to Arthur Obermayer for sharing this in the MIT Technology Review).  This might explain how the intersecting perspectives of Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard gave birth to Silicon Valley in the HP Garage while at the crossroads of simplicity and entrepreneurship.  Join me as I explore HP Discover Barcelona to check out the future of innovation.

New Style of Agility drives the Mobile Experience at HP Discover

Going Mobile? Don't forget to test, your customers won't! says A.J.Murray, one of my fellow bloggers highlighting the need to deliver applications that run according to the needs of  the brave new social world of mobile interactions.  Agile methodology has long been about shorter development cycles with real-time adjustments based upon direct interactions with the end user.  However, with software defining the new brand of the digital enterprise, competitive enterprises of the future must adopt a ‘New Style of Agility.’  What could this new style of agility entail?  Checking out a few of the HP Discover sessions on Mobility in Barcelona would be a good start.

Discover the Inner GPS of Enterprise Transformation

Dr. John O’Keefe, will share this year’s Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine with May-Britt Moser and Edvard I. Moser. These three scientists are being recognized for their discovery of an “an inner GPS, in the brain,” that solves the basic mystery of how the brain creates a map of our surroundings and helps us navigate our way through a complex environment.  Sound familiar?  Enterprise Transformation can similarly be described as both are a continuous engine. The New Style of IT drives a new style of leadership triggering a new style of thinking that develops the “Inner GPS” for the enterprise.  Can enterprises zero in on this “Inner GPS” of transformation?  Let us see if the sessions at HP Discover Barcelona offer any clues!

The state of technology in 25 years

I came out of Meg Whitman’s keynote at HP Discover and saw the HP 2039 video booth, where attendees could share their thoughts on what technology would look like in 25 years. Charged by the forward-thinking shared during the keynote address, I quickly synthesized my own thoughts into the 1-minute video clip.
