Hewlett-Packard Co. last week outlined its vision of the role of technology in what it called the Instant-On Enterprise, in which organizations, including businesses and government agencies, embed technology into every process and activity to better meet customers’ needs.

The vendor not only articulated its view of technology for rapidly transitioning organizations but also offered a collection of integrated hardware, software and services solutions that it said provides businesses and government institutions with tools necessary to construct and maintain an environment that responds instantly to customers’ requirements.

Mobile and cloud computing have prompted customers to “expect responses in seconds and instants instead of weeks and days,” HP said in a statement. The vendor said that its research reveals IT’s shifting role within organizations from administrator to “one and the same” with the enterprise.

“To respond to new enterprise drivers and motivators, organizations need to fundamentally change how they operate,” said Thomas E. Hogan, HP executive vice president, Enterprise Sales, Marketing and Strategy.

“It takes a special kind of enterprise to close the expectation gap between what customers and citizens expect and what the enterprise can deliver,” he said.

New sets of integrated solutions

HP said it has constructed what it calls a “foundational set of integrated solutions,” based on its portfolio of hardware, software, services and intellectual property, to help businesses and governments become so-called “instant-on enterprises.”

The vendor’s Application Transformation solutions are intended to help enterprises gain control over aging applications and outdated processes that compromise innovation and agility, the company said.

HP’s Converged Infrastructure solutions integrate server, storage, networking and management resources in the data center, aimed at reducing costs and boosting agile service delivery.

The company’s Enterprise Security portfolio maps all levels of security—people, processes, technology and content—to the changing demands of businesses and government agencies.

HP’s Information Optimization solutions are intended to help organizations reassess how information is compiled, stored and accessed.

New service delivery options

HP said that its Hybrid Delivery enables clients to construct a strategy to deliver their services, and helps them to figure out the delivery model that works best for their level of service consumption and management.

The vendor said it is offering two services to help customers choose the right service delivery model to meet their needs.

The Hybrid Delivery Strategy Service provides customers with a framework to bring hybrid delivery concepts into their current environment.

HP’s Hybrid Delivery Workload Analysis Service assesses an enterprise’s lineup of workloads and applications, and compiles service use and demand profile information, to build recommendations on how best to position workloads in a hybrid environment.

“Working with our clients, we can embed technology to deliver innovation at every point in the enterprise that matters, from mobile devices to global data centers,” Hogan said.
