Accelerate Business Growth – HPE Advisory Services Identify and Focus on Key Business Outcomes

In business, the customer has always been king. However, proliferation of social media, digital, and mobile devices now puts the consumer in complete control of the relationship.

Consumers demand instant, anywhere access to a range of products and services. They can gather information and insight from a few close friends or the population at large—even from your competitors. And they are likely to do it before asking you. They can also easily tell the whole world what they think of your products and services—good or bad—in an instant.

Organizations need to listen, understand, act, and engage. Nothing short of a personalized and immediate response is effective.

The expectation of instant connection to information—anytime, anywhere—is driving a shift to the New Style of IT. This new style is business-led, with IT supporting organizational goals. It’s efficient, open, flexible, scalable, and collaborative. Going forward, it will predominantly be made up of as-a-Service and consumption-based models for speed, agility, and cost-effectiveness.

It’s a world where cloud, security, Big Data, and mobility all converge in comprehensive solutions to better connect with customers, citizens, communities, partners, and suppliers.

That’s why CIOs must now think less about machines and more about how technology is delivered and consumed, and how it helps solve issues. It’s also about how users engage with technology rather than the technology itself. So CIOs will need to connect millions of devices securely through the cloud via new applications.

Consumers, citizens, and employees will continue to demand increased flexibility in the services and devices they use. Organizations will have to figure out how to extract better value from the increasing volumes of data they gather. And all systems will need to be secured in an environment that’s protected from ever-increasing cyber threats.

At Hewlett Packard Enterprise, we believe four business drivers will impact your organization:

  • Customer experience/citizen engagement—Understanding customers’ needs and desires and using technology to better connect with them
  • Employee empowerment—Empowering and retaining your talented workforce with technology options that enable productivity and flexibility
  • Mergers and acquisitions—Generating enterprise growth and value faster than can be accomplished through organic expansion alone
  • IT-enabled business models—Using technology to transform the way business and government works

Align your business outcomes with the enabling solutions, services, and technologies that empower success with HPE Advisory Services.
