New Investment In Partner Solution Architect Community, Technology Solution Summits

Hewlett Packard Enterprise Global Channel Chief Paul Hunter says the company is making significant new investments in building out the skill sets of elite solution architects with a focus on business outcomes.

"We are fighting for the mind share of the technologists of partners," said Hunter. "We are fighting for mind share of the sales people in those partners. We are fighting for mind share of the owners. And we are also fighting for mind share of the marketing organization."

To that end, Hunter this week rolled out globally the new Tech Pro Community which is aimed at building an elite technical community of partner solution architects working with HPE solution architects in a single community aimed at driving game changing business outcomes for customers.

HPE has also doubled down on its Technology Solution Summits, which provide technical education for solution architects. Hunter, in fact, officially launched the Tech Pro Community at the HPE Technology Solution Summit in Paris which runs March 11- 15, attracting 1,300 partner participants, an increase of 25 percent over the prior year.

"Those technology solution summits are really key events for us," Hunter told CRN. "We have doubled down on them this year and we'll continue to double down on them in future years. So we have got lofty aspirations for continuing to grow the participation of our partners at those events."
