HPE Discover 2022: CEO Antonio Neri’s 10 Most Provocative Statements
Hewlett Packard Enterprise CEO Antonio Neri took on all the big issues at HPE Discover 2022 from HPE’s transformation into a software and services company with GreenLake to how HPE is out-innovating competitors. Here are his 10 most provocative statements from the event.
HPE’s Edge-To-Cloud Innovation Advantage Versus Competitors
We have a lot of competitors, but we also have co-opetition. So if you go back to what [HPE Vice President of Product Management] Bryan [Thompson] showed today, we integrated our backup and recovery service with AWS.
We also have solutions with Microsoft Azure. We also announced a few weeks ago a unique solution with Google where we have become a part of their solution for Google Distributed Cloud on-premises.
Ultimately, what customers want is a hybrid experience and we give them that true hybrid experience all the way to the edge. The moment you select a public cloud and you may select two—those two don’t talk to each other. You are running on two tracks.
We can deliver a true hybrid experience both at the workload level and at the data level.
As far as the traditional vendors, I don’t dismiss anyone but so far I haven’t seen any big advancements yet from the Lenovos, the Dells.
Cisco is a little bit different because they focus on one thing, which is networking. We compete with them at the edge, but even that is a different story.
