HPE Steps Up Innovation Offensive: 10 Hot New Product/Sales Plays From Discover 2016
What HPE Partners Need To Know
Hewlett Packard Enterprise is using its Discover conference in Las Vegas this week to showcase a slew of innovative new products and sales plays as the competition heats up in the hybrid-cloud computing software-defined data center era.
Among the offerings being unveiled at the show from the independent company -- which split off from HP Inc. last November -- are new Helion Cloud software and systems; a new version of its robust OneView converged infrastructure management platform; new 3Par StoreServ offerings that up the all-flash ante against rival EMC; and an all-out software container offensive that turns up the heat on VMware.
The stepped-up pace of innovation is on display just two weeks after HPE revealed that it was spinning off and merging its $20 billion enterprise services business with systems integrator CSC -- a move that sharpens HPE's focus on selling next-generation software-defined infrastructure through its tens of thousands of solution provider partners.
"It accelerates the partner strategy," HPE CEO Meg Whitman (pictured) told CRN. "I would say more, better, faster. To your point, we'll be even more focused on the channel. Obviously, we want to continue to grow the company based on the excellent technology that we have invested in over the last four years."
