HPE Discover


AI, HPC and Analytics

Data is your lifeblood and competitive advantage, and we are creating more data every minute. So how do digital enterprises analyze then act on insights – at speed – with everything from curing diseases and creating smarter cities to conducting research in space? Data–intensive workloads require specialized technologies including in–memory computing such as SAP HANA, supercomputing at exascale, and Hadoop for large data sets. Go deep with HPE’s data and AI experts as they share the latest learnings and insights about the tools, skills and platforms needed to harness the data deluge.


Datacenter technologies

Hybrid IT is at the core of your company, running the business seamlessly and invisibly while enabling digital transformation, and with it a new generation of apps and data. In a world of increasing complexity where optimal efficiency and vigilant security are top of mind, your infrastructure must meet performance and availability demands, every time. These sessions are dedicated to the HPE and partner strategies and platforms that form the backbone of your agile enterprise. Across traditional, virtualized, containerized and bare metal workloads, the modern, software–defined data center accelerates your enterprise and is ready for what’s next.


Digital Transformation

In a hyper–connected world – speed matters – and expectations for seamless, instant, personalized experiences anytime, anywhere, become the new normal. The future belongs to the fast – those with shorter innovation cycles, and those who are obsessed with reducing friction at every layer of the business. So, why can some organizations effortlessly transform their IT into data–driven, digital businesses, while others are continually disrupted with failing projects, outages and complex migrations? Explore how predictable transformation outcomes are achieved – at speed, with innovative advisory, design and implementation, operations and support services from HPE Pointnext.


Emerging Technologies

As we move into a new world where we have milliseconds to process exabytes, we’re going to need to do much more with much less, much faster. How? With Memory–Driven Computing that will power your enterprise’s AI future. With mission–critical blockchains providing trust across the enterprise. With security embedded across the supply chain, from edge to cloud to core. And with new technologies that move beyond the transistor: quantum, photonic and nanoscale analog computing. These sessions will separate the promise from the hype and give you a sneak peek at the technology and business models that will fuel your digital future.


Flexible Consumption & Financial Services

We are in a consumption–based world where you pay for outcomes you want – what you need and when you need it. With HPE Pointnext and HPE Financial Services as your strategic partner, you focus on the business and HPE takes care of the Hybrid IT heavy lifting. Pay for use over time for top workloads with HPE GreenLake for big data, backup, database platform, SAP HANA and edge computing – delivered on your terms.

HPE Ecosystem

Think you know HPE? From decades–long alliances with the biggest names in tech, to our Pathfinder program that curates the brightest new stars in Silicon Valley, we make innovation a team sport. Of course, it takes more than great technologies to deliver exceptional business outcomes. Get to know our complete ecosystem of partners and programs that extend our strengths in R&D from Hewlett Packard Labs and learnings from HPE IT to accelerate your business with the right solutions, every time.


Hybrid IT & Cloud

With Cloud, it’s never been easier – or faster – to create, deploy and innovate. But questions remain: Which workloads are right for migration to public cloud vs. on–premises? How do I manage my hybrid IT resources – across both – in the same way? Do I have the visibility and operational controls I need to optimize my budget? From AWS and Microsoft Azure to HPE OneSphere and HPE GreenLake, these sessions cover the best practices, technologies, services and partnerships that help find your right mix of Hybrid IT and success in a multi–cloud world.


Intelligent Edge

By 2020, 20.8B IoT devices will be connected to the enterprise while the adoption of mobility and cloud continues to rise.  These trends create constantly changing requirements for IT staff when IT budgets fail to keep up.  Join us to learn how Aruba’s edge-to-cloud platform for IoT security, edge analytics, and automation can help IT become more operationally efficient while scaling to meet the growing demands of digital business.


Security, Governance & Compliance

In a world where everything is connected and distributed, the threat of cyber–attacks is accelerating. It’s now crucial to gain compliance with regulations such as GDPR, and build proactive and defensive strategies to protect your data, your reputation and your competitive advantage from persistent threats. How do you cover all the bases when attacks can come from devices connected anywhere to compromise systems right down to the silicon? Join these sessions as we show you how to anchor Security as a pervasive layer in your business to protect, detect, and recover from breaches.


Software-defined Infrastructure

In order to thrive in a digital world, enterprises need IT to quickly pivot with business needs and deliver resources when and where they’re needed. Software–defined infrastructure simplifies and automates Hybrid IT with the ideal balance of agility, control and efficiency. These sessions encompass HPE’s world–class hyperconverged and composable infrastructure solutions, as well as our infrastructure and multi–cloud management portfolio, to help IT move faster and smarter. Together with a huge ecosystem of top application and tools partners, HPE lets you create and deliver services dynamically – with the control you need for your business.


Storage

As data volumes and sources continue to multiply, your business cannot afford disruptions and delays. All–flash storage – a key component in this equation – improves performance but complexity can still create problems and business impact. When your apps slow down, you’ve hit the app–data gap. Shift your focus back to business performance and competitiveness with the power of machine learning to boost uptime and simplify management. Learn how you can migrate data simply and natively between all–flash, hybrid flash and multi–cloud storage. HPE’s experts help you navigate the storage landscape to ensure your infrastructure is fast, efficient, flexible and predictive.
