Building The Future
Hewlett Packard Enterprise is on a roll. HPE ended its most recent fiscal quarter, its first fiscal quarter 2022, on Jan. 31 with order growth up 20 percent, as-a-service orders up 136 percent, revenue up 2 percent over the same period last year, and an increased fiscal 2022 earnings guidance.
HPE President and CEO Antonio Neri Tuesday gave his keynote at the company’s annual shareholders meeting during which he touted the advancements the company has made in the past year, particularly in its HPE GreenLake as-a-service platform, which is at the center of the company’s technology focus and of customers’ digital transformation requirements.
“HPE GreenLake is uniquely designed to help customers drive their digital transformations through a data-first modernization approach by harnessing the power of the data,” Neri said. “As enterprises increasingly adopt hybrid multi-cloud strategies, HPE is leading a new edge-to-cloud category to enable customers to derive value from all their data, no matter where it lives.”
Neri went beyond the technology side of HPE to look at other issues impacting the company and the IT industry, including Russia’s war in Ukraine, supply chain shortages, and HPE’s strategies around R&D and environmental, social and governance (ESG) initiatives. Here are highlights of his keynote.
