Intel excels at the heart of HP Discover

I have been witness to the Intel-HP partnership at past HP Discover conferences. HP Discover 2014 is no exception. As I peruse the Intel sessions at this conference, DT4067 by Rich Nockels, Intel Marketing Manager stands out for me. It highlights how HP and Intel are bridging the gap between users and IT, with a new wave of devices that users will want to use for both work and play. Users like myself, who are planning on dressing up with wearables for this conference. I read more into this session because I see an emerging theme, reinforced by other Intel sessions, punctuating the HP-Intel partnership. It is a partnership with Intel at the heart, which manifests itself from various perspectives at HP Discover. 

Little Data can change the user experience with relevant information at HP Discover

The integration of next-generation technologies will change the focus in the near future to bringing “relevant information” to users based on conversation context, location, etc. This is the essence of the DT3574 - How future technologies will change the role between users and information session delivered by Seth Pickett, HP Senior Director. It is intended to be an open discussion on how enterprises will enable these technologies to gain competitive advantage. But the impact of such technologies starts with individuals like you and me. Say hello to Little Data, which is all about having timely access to information that matters to the individual with context. Little by little, appropriate chunks of relevant information will enrich the user experience when dealing with zettabytes of Big Data.

Looking at the data—through Google Glass—to view the information

After having checked out the Cloud, Security, and Mobility tracks at HP Discover, I look at Session DT 3809 on how Google Glass can be used to view information that matters. Reading the abstract, I get several ideas of how this “thing” can make a difference, across various industries, in the new world of Internet of Things (IoT). For instance, Beth Isreal Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) CIO John Halamka, explains the benefits of physicians adorning Google Glass who look at their patients while viewing their information. This is Google Glass applied to the healthcare industry. Like Big Data and Cloud, IoT has its own way of making a difference across industries. Let’s look at the scenarios below to view the related information.

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).

Innovating with the criminal mind to secure $60 million at HP Discover

 “How to steal $60 million in 60 seconds” is one of the Innovation Theater session in the Security track at HP Discover. This session, delivered by Andrzej Kawalec, Chief Technologist, HP Enterprise Security Services, is about understanding how cyber criminals plan attacks that realize returns like $60 million in 60 seconds. While this session takes us into the darkest corners of Adversaries R Us, it also provides an opportunity to learn and apply a new style of thinking. I don’t expect to walk out with $60 million after this session, but I do feel very secure obtaining approximately $60 million worth of knowledge by attending the various sessions in this track. Join me in my quest to obtain $60 million worth of knowledge.
