The Enterprise Transformed—Where the Magic Happens

By Mike Nefkens, Executive Vice President, Enterprise Services, Hewlett Packard Enterprise

To thrive, you must strive for a future state that is architected, streamlined, and dynamic. A transformation that supports workloads with automation, availability, and security. Infrastructure as a Service that scales as the business needs it and allows quick deployment of new solutions.

Mike Nefkens | HP Enterprise ForwardWe are experiencing one of the most exciting times in our careers. The frenetic pace of change. The potential of a digitally enabled, hyperconnected world. All commanding a whole new approach—one that requires the ability to harness the power of cloud, mobility, Big Data, and social to capture new growth and accelerate in an unprecedented and secure way.

Simply put, it’s the new reality. A New Style of Business that’s defining the future of enterprise success, tilting the scale past surviving to thriving. For most, the destination is clear, but how to get there is not. The transformation is where the magic happens and where we come in.

There’s no way to deliver on all the growing requirements you’re facing without it: Increasing flexibility and accelerating innovation by transforming to a business-led, on-demand IT environment. Empowering employees to work smarter and make better and faster decisions from anywhere. Protecting your digital enterprise. Enabling a data-driven organization that delivers better outcomes. And ultimately enhancing the customer experience to secure loyalty and generate more revenue.

Your ultimate goal is a future state that is architected, streamlined, and dynamic. A transformation that supports workloads with automation, availability, and security. Infrastructure as a Service that scales as the business needs it and allows quick deployment of new solutions. And the shift from being a day-today CIO to becoming a Chief Integration Officer responsible for creating the organizations’ ecosystem of value across the right partners.

In this second issue of Enterprise Forward, we offer some inspiration for the choices in front of you. A new service-centric model for the New Style of Business. Our thought leaders’ unique insights for transforming your enterprise through applications, security, cloud, mobility, and workplace strategies, along with how to grow your culture to support the evolution. We’ll also introduce you to more of our brightest innovators. And you’ll read the success stories of more of our thriving clients.

We’d like to help write yours—to optimize the traditional so that you can invest in and focus on the new. To accelerate your getting there. And to combine the power of our expertise with yours to focus on one objective: your vision realized.

Best,
Mike Nefkens
