HPE released a new version of its Ezmeral Software data fabric that transforms the SaaS offering into a much more powerful platform for AI artificial intelligence and ML based workloads.

Hitting The Market With The AI Explosion In Full Swing

The new robust HPE Ezmeral AI and ML capabilities are hitting the market with the AI explosion in full-force as a result of the ChatGPT AI frenzy, said Shattuck.

“All of a sudden AI has just exploded,” he said. “People who didn’t even know really what AI is are talking about things like ChatGPT. What a lot of people don’t realize is the ChatGPT people are talking about is ChatGPT 4.0. It is not ChatGPT 1.0. There have been three other iterations of ChatGPT.”

The generative AI tool sets that are going “gangbusters” right now have opened people’s minds to the “art of what is possible,” said Shattuck. “But folks are not really sure yet how do they leverage a ChatGPT to make their business more effective and competitive and they are struggling. This is a great opportunity for us and our partners to help customers make that easy.”

HPE teaming with partners are stepping into the AI fray to help customers “leverage the data they have” and put that data into compelling AI based applications for the business, said Shattuck.

“You can have the most sophisticated AI tool in the world, but what makes AI tools and ML algorithms valuable is the data and the customers have the data,” he said. “We can help them get their arms wrapped around the data and we can help them actually deploy AI projects.”

The bottom line: HPE and channel partners together are now poised to help customers “figure out how to leverage AI for the betterment” of their business, said Shattuck.

HPE’s legacy as a partner first organization is going to be critical in helping customers build compelling AI and ML applications, said Shattuck.“HPE has always been one of the most partner friendly tech vendors in the industry,” he said.

“The only way we can scale in the (AI) marketplace is through the partner ecosystem,” he said. “It is the only way that we are going to gain scale. We in the Ezmeral business unit are extremely partner focused and partner friendly. We have got Ezmeral specific partner development managers in every geo (geography) globally to work with our channel partners to accelerate their ability to deploy the software and solutions for our customer.”
