Having a Mission-Critical Computing Expert Help You Discover your IT Environment—Priceless!

Navigating and scheduling your time at HP Discover can often be a difficult task. Getting lost in the products, solutions, demos, customer case studies, sessions, Innovation Theater, and special events can be easy, if not inevitable. What makes each and every one of these elements of HP Discover invaluable are the HP mission-critical subject matter experts providing their valuable knowledge and insight on topics such as Project Odyssey, HP-UX, NonStop, mission-critical x86, solutions, services, or support. Although these session topics are all interesting and useful, they probably don’t address your specific business needs as intimately as you would like. Read more to find out how you can have individually tailored discussions with HP Mission-Critical Experts that focus on your specific business needs.
