I am in Lost Wages, USA, also known colloquially as Las Vegas, Nevada, for the 2016 iteration of HP Discover, which is HPE’s enterprise event for partners and IT professionals.
Since this is the first event for HPE as a standalone company since the split into HP Enterprise (HPE) and HP Inc. (HP.), and I would like to gauge the sentiments from not only partners and the IT professionals expected to roam the exposition flows and meeting rooms, but also to see if I can get a feeling for the emotional state of HPE staffers.
As usual my dance card is full, starting yesterday with a meet-and-greet where HPE’s sartorial ‘Man of Security & Software’, Paul Muller, did a masterful job on the wheels of steel.
It continues today with almost round-the-clock briefings and Coffee Talks, and I am looking to get a brain full of HPE stuff.
Let’s do this!
