RESEARCH PAPER: HP’s Vision for Tomorrow’s IT

By Patrick Moorhead - April 28, 2015
The forces of mobility, cloud, security, and big data are driving a sea change in the role of IT. Their combined impact is creating new business opportunities while simultaneously transforming the customer engagement model. Faced with this environment, today’s traditional hardware-centric view of IT and slow pace of innovation cannot meet future business requirements in a world where latency and scale rule the day. IT must shift to a services-centric mindset and become a strategic business differentiator. To enable this, businesses will need to change how they approach their IT infrastructure in order to maximize business outcomes.
