Collaboration within HP’s strategy

Earlier this week HP had a kickoff of its strategy. The video used as the introduction was poignant:

It showed many products (some announced but unreleased) and services that enable a shift in the definition of mobile, smartphone and many other aspects of IT today.

In the video the statement is made the “we have a purpose” to delivery secure, seamless access to information, so that everyone has the power to transform their world. One thing that is implied is that HP is moving beyond just products and services in isolation, into solutions – business and personal solutions.

A couple of times in the video, they mentioned collaboration and earlier this week I was able to attend a meeting in a Halo room (not the 6-12 person kind but the 12-24 person configuration) and see where that collaboration approach is headed,  breaking down some of the artificial barriers that are currently in place with a software only collaboration solution that should raise the bar significantly on what it means to be in a video conference, and lower the entrance threshold – at the same time. The approach is called HP Visual Collaboration. This visual collaborations solutions page shows some of the highlights.
