HP DISCOVER in Vienna is fast approaching... November 29-Dec 1! It is HP's largest technical showcase event. We had the first Discover event in Las Vegas earlier this year, and many of you made your way there or visited our blogs and twitter feeds for news and updates from HP. Vienna will bring more news, more announcements and more opportunities to meet colleagues and get hands on with our newest gear. And our new CEO Meg Whitman will be speaking!
Again we have plenty of relevant sessions for those of you involved with mission-critical computing, interested in protecting your investments for the next decade and beyond, and meeting the challenges faced in an Instant-On world where expectations are incredibly high (and growing!) and resources are tight.

I encourage you to check out the full event session catalog too (just do a search filter by track=business critical systems) to find sessions that fit your industry or specific business need. We will also be announcing the winners of the Mission-Critical Innovation Awards the night before Discover, and many of our finalists will be at the event, likely attending some of the same sessions you may be. I'll be posting the winners here on the blog, so if you see them at the event I hope you will offer your congratulations and reach out to ask about their innovation stories.
