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.

Sprout by HP blends the reality of the physical and the digital worlds

"We believe it can change the world”, says HP executive vice president Dion Weisler of Blended Reality.  Weisler is referring to HP Sprout, a design-oriented computing system that lets people scan and manipulate 2-D and 3-D objects.  It would not have surprised Issac Asimov, who asserted way back 1957 that creative ideas stem from people capable of making the right connections across knowledge domains. “It represents a whole new category (not just your ordinary PC)”, according to HP Distinguished Technologist Brad Short in this USA Today interviewJoin me as I explore the reality of what is getting “blended” and how it could potentially change the world of user experience.

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 an enjoyable User Experience beyond the GUI

“It is not just about being useful, but it needs to be usable and ultimately enjoyable.” That was the slide that was up on the screen as I walked into the DT3804 session - How to build great Mobile Apps by Traci Terterian and Oded Klimer at HP Discover. Terterian was talking about building great mobile apps, based on a design that is centered around the new Nucleus of IT—the user. In the true spirit of having fun in the Race to the New Style of IT, the Mobile App must be an enjoyable experience for the user—an app  the user should want to use rather than have to use. Therein lies the fundamentals of “an enjoyable user experience,” much more than the basic functional value the Graphical User Interface (GUI) used to deliver. Useful doesn’t cut it anymore. 

 

To be or not to be your own device at HP Discover

Marc Wilkinson, HP Chief Technologist, Mobility & Workplace, suggests a different acronym for the Bring Your Own ecosystem. Asking if the “Bring Your Own” paradigm is unraveling, Wilkinson suggests that it is a “Bring Your Own Stuff” world. All these devices – fueled by the world of wearables – is, at the end of the day – defining the persona of the individuals concerned. Just like Software is the new Brand that defines the Digital Customer Experience, the “stuff” that Wilkinson refers to defines the individual. Thus, it is more about “Being” rather than “Bringing” your own device – a message that clearly comes across when I review the HP Discover sessions on the Mobility Track. Join me as I consider “Being My Own Device” at HP Discover.
