The IT/Business Mind Meld: Learn the technique at HP Discover

By Fiona Guiducci, EMEA Technology Services Storage Portfolio Manager


As many global providers of market intelligence and advisory services point out, IT is undergoing profound changes. To take just one example, analyst firm Gartner recently released survey results which show that 28 percent of CIOs expect to source all critical applications and operations via the Cloud by 2016, and 55 percent plan to do so by 2020, according to this eWeek article.


Many companies face traditional IT changes more linked to the IT technological transformation, while continuing to deliver IT services to their business interfaces with a physical environment. Others are facing more profound changes, driving their approach towards a converged and virtualized environment, or eventually the Cloud solution.


For sure, the constant pressure of change is caused by rapidly evolving technology – but you definitely need to consider the business approach, too, which is more and more fundamental for IT professionals. No doubt, your organization is concerned about how to respond to increasing business demands – how to become always more effective and efficient, with always less investment and fewer resources. Flexibility, high availability and security are likely major areas of concern, too.


We at HP are aware that many customers are in the process of evolving from traditional IT environments to the New Style of IT, which is converged, virtualized, automated, and quite often delivered via cloud. During HP Discover 2013 in Barcelona you’ll have the chance to explore this new reality and a new CIO leadership style that encompasses knowledge of the business model and business processes.


At Discover, I will be at a Demo Station dedicated to the vast portfolio of Storage services that HP can offer you (and I’ll be writing more about that in my next blog.) I would love to meet you there to talk about the fusion of IT innovations with a truly business-focused mindset, and what the New Style of IT can do for your organization. Please come to visit us at the DEMO 2326 in the storage area in Hall 5. I look forward to meeting you!


In the meantime, you can read more about the New Style of IT in this article by HP COO Bill Veghte.


And learn how HP Storage Services can help you accelerate to the next era of storage.
