At HPE, we want every organization to have the opportunity for success in today’s digital world. Success these days relies on moving quickly to disrupt or run the risk of being disrupted. That’s why today we announced HPE Pointnext, which combines our highly successful technology services consulting and support groups to create one world-class services organization.
Companies of all sizes across all industries are on various paths to digital transformation. And every day, HPE delivers the latest software-defined infrastructure needed to transform our customers into digital-first businesses.
But digital transformation isn’t something that happens overnight, and there isn’t always a clear path to success. Customers often need help figuring out which technologies they should invest in and how best to implement them to solve complex business problems.
Our team of 25,000 IT experts around the globe work directly with customers to ensure they have the right technologies, tools and processes to achieve their goals. By making hybrid IT simple and powering the Intelligent Edge, HPE enables organizations to digitize core operations, innovate new products and services, and deliver better experiences to their customers.
Three Pillars of HPE Pointnext
HPE Pointnext is built on three types of services. Our Advisory and Transformation Services is at the forefront, designing customers’ transformation journey and building a roadmap tailored to their unique challenges. Our Professional Services specializes in flawless and on-time implementation, on-budget execution and creative configurations for software and hardware. And finally, our Operational Services will offer new ways to deliver IT by managing and optimizing on-premises and cloud workloads, resources and capacity.
What HPE Brings to Every Customer Project
Pointnext is a services organization built for the future to help customers optimize and leverage the ideal technologies, partners and operational foundations needed to accelerate their digital journey all while providing a seamless customer experience. Building on our heritage of services leadership, Pointnext will invest and focus in the following areas:
- Optimizing infrastructure – Having the right infrastructure in place is a critical first step on the digital transformation journey. For decades, HPE’s core strength has been rooted in infrastructure. Specifically, how to design, integrate and support solutions that perform and scale to meet the unique demands of the apps and data that drive businesses.
- Curating a best-in-class partner ecosystem – Many businesses struggle to determine which technologies and vendors can best solve their unique problem, and how to bring them together. A key ingredient to create successful solutions for our customers is our ability to collaborate with the right partners. We’ve built a strong ecosystem of industry leaders like SAP and Microsoft, innovative startups like Docker and Mesosphere, and strategic integrators such as CSC/ES, Accenture, PwC and Deloitte.
- Removing complexity across all areas of the business – Pointnext experts help customers go beyond the technology problem of digital transformation to address culture, measurement, skills, change management as well as new approaches to funding and IT consumption options. This helps leaders across business and IT focus on innovation and create value, rather than on operations.
- Building for speed – Our scalable approach is designed to deliver faster time to value for our customers, focusing on helping them build solid foundations in technology, process and people to enable them to learn quickly and continuously improve.
Each time Pointnext experts work with a customer, that customer is not just receiving the knowledge and expertise of the team, but our decades of experience. We have developed industry leading IP and an extensive library of enterprise-class designs and blueprints from over 11,000 successful implementations. We know what works and what doesn’t, because we’ve done it many times – both for own infrastructure and for thousands of customers.
For HPE, Pointnext is a redefined and future-focused organization with a new approach to services. It’s a way we can make a difference in our customers’ businesses, beyond providing the software-defined infrastructure they depend on. With Pointnext, we will not only offer the necessary technology infrastructure and tools, but we will join our customers on their journeys to digital transformation.
