HPE President and CEO Antonio Neri told analysts at the annual meeting that the COVID-19 pandemic - combined with digital transformation - is making HPE a more attractive company for customers navigating the new normal.

HPE Strategy: Drive Long-Term, Sustainable, Profitable Growth  

In addition to turning everything into a service, HPE continues to invest in a wide range of areas to align resources, unlock operating leverage and build long-term growth, Neri said.

This starts at the compute and storage businesses where HPE ships 46 terabytes of storage and four servers every 60 minutes, he said. “Compute and storage are also critical components of our edge-to-cloud platform as-a-service strategy [and] a key competitive differentiator,” he said.

HPE is also driving multiple near-term growth opportunities and doubling down in growth areas like the intelligent edge and high-performance computing as shown by its recent acquisitions of Cray and Silver Peak, Neri said.

HPE is also optimizing its R&D and supply chain costs to deliver the lowest cost per compute workload resources, Neri said. “We have made significant progress this year and will continue our efforts to drive simplification and supply chain efficiencies,” he said.

Just as important is HPE’s AIOps capabilities, Neri said. This includes the HPE InfoSight software, an advanced AI for infrastructure operations that can predict and resolve issues 86 percent of the time, he said. HPE InfoSight is now utilized on 85 percent of Nimble and Primera arrays and is ramping on different HPE server lines to deliver industry-leading AIOps for customers and enable HPE Pointnext Technology Services offerings, he said.

“We are focused on making strategic investments to fuel future growth,” he said. “We have taken very deliberate steps to pivot our portfolio and expand into new customer segments and markets.”
