Track Sessions (one of the following):
Cloud computing. Behind the amorphous language often used to describe cloud computing lies tangible efficiency and flexibility. We will talk about how to build your own private cloud and what you need to know about sourcing services from the public cloud.
Automation and virtualization. With boundaries imposed by physical devices dropping fast, we’ll explore the resulting opportunities to boost IT efficiency, reduce errors, and drastically reduce manual effort, to improve service levels.
Application transformation. A radical departure from legacy application practices, state-of-the-art development and operations — the route to decreased cost, increased agility and reduced risk — will be illuminated.
Presented by HP’s executive team, together we will explore technology advances that will change how IT professionals surpass service levels, trim costs and position their organizations for greater competitiveness.
We look forward to seeing you there.
