On Why GreenLake Is The Future Of HPE
As we think about what the customer challenges are, and always we think about what are the biggest problems we can solve for our customers, what we realized through the digital transformation we all live in—which is now no longer a priority but a strategic imperative—is that they need to approach data modernization first. And they need an edge-to-cloud architecture to do so because data lives everywhere. And more and more it lives at the edge. And that’s why in 2018 I said that the edge is the new frontier.
And ultimately what we saw through the pandemic is, obviously everybody went into preservation mode. Cash is king, and to be able to consume IT and stay ahead required quite a different business model. But the year before, I said that we will offer everything as a service in our company. And so that’s why GreenLake is the future of HPE. And I think it’s the future for our partners too because it‘s a platform that we continue to build where you can consume all the services that you need. We focus on three different metrics: secure connectivity, cloud and data. Those are the three things we’re building in the platform. And then we are on a journey to get that more and more robust as we go along the way. ...The whole experience on hpe.com is about consuming whatever services you need in those three domains. ... This is the future of the company. And where you sell compute and storage today, you will be able to sell it through the cloud no differently than any other service you consume.
