Attack The Stack
The modern IT stack is a complex beast that companies can handle from a handful of angles, but HPE Chief Creatologist Joe Batista sees two distinct "hemispheres" against which they execute their workloads.
On one side, there's storage, servers, operating systems and hypervisors, and IT leaders can take a few different approaches to that infrastructure – layer optimization, converged, hyperc-onverged and composable. Opposite that, on what Batista calls the softer side of IT, businesses have their processes, apps, technical talent and security.
However midsize enterprises choose to manage their on-premises, off-premises and hybrid workloads, Batista said he sees midmarket IT departments leveraging HPE solutions in several ways, from IoT to mobile and even as a business optimizer. Speaking Monday to 200-plus IT leaders at The Channel Company's Midsize Enterprise Summit in San Antonio, Batista singled out five use cases that HPE partners might find interesting.
