It’s been exactly 1 month since HPE Discover Las Vegas 2016 opened its doors. For us in the IoT global marketing team is barely enough time to recover from the adrenaline rush of being on center stage –literally– and bringing you the latest from the event and beyond.
Here is a summary
Hewlett Packard Enterprise made its mark in the evolution of the Internet of Things with the introduction of HPE Edgeline converged IoT systems –a new product category–, equipped with enhanced security from HPE Aruba ClearPass, as well as HPE Vertica analytics platform for real-time analytics at the edge – an industry first.
Here are a few articles from the press, highlighting the announcements:
- HPE's new converged IoT systems bring horsepower to the edge
- HPE Claims Industry-1st ‘Converged IoT System’ for OT, IT and Analytics at the Edge
- HPE Unveils Converged Systems for IoT
- HPE puts analytics at the edge to further customers’ IoT journeys
Of course, Twitter was our main channel for promoting these announcements. Here are the highlights, including cool demos on the event floor.
Why is it a big deal?
Not only did HPE create the new product category Converged IoT Systems with the HPE Edgeline EL1000 and EL4000, with unmatched computing and analytics capabilities, but also, the HPE is making the term “real-time analytics” in IoT more accurate than ever. As we have discussed previously, the closer you bring the compute power to sensor-enabled “things”, where the data is generated, the faster you can produce insights – and this is a very powerful tool for Manufacturing, Oil & Gas, Energy and Transportation companies, where immediate response is crucial.

Here are slides and videos from event sessions about Edge Computing, IoT analytics at the Edge, IoT Security, how to monetize on IoT data and many more. You can access all of them here, but the most important ones are:
Defining Edge computing, “moving to the left”, its benefits for industries and where the new Converged IoT Systems category falls
IoT security is a major concern, that is why the new HPE Edgeline IoT systems are equipped with enhanced security from Aruba ClearPass
Here is how it works:
We have put together a list with videos and session replays:
IoT is a journey, and every journey needs a roadmap
With the announcement of consulting services like the IoT Transformation Workshop, HPE can help customers ensure that Business and IT initiatives are completely aligned, with the goals of:
- Assessing their current IoT situation
- Identifying how IoT can help their business
- Defining an IoT journey, to drive business outcomes
You can read more about the IoT Transformation workshop, its methodology and why this is the best first step to take before embarking on IoT.
Best of both worlds- IT and Industry
HPE CEO Meg Whitman also announced partnerships with top Industry leaders of the caliber of GE and National Instruments. What does this mean to HPE customers? They will be getting the best of both worlds: Infrastructure Technology (IT) from HPE, as well as Industry expertise and Operational Technology (OT) from GE and National Instruments.
Here is a video interview from The Cube, with Dr. Tom Bradicich, HPE IoT VP and General Manager, and Eric Starkloff, National Instruments, explaining this further.
