Voices Coming Together
…Being Heard and Acted Upon

The purpose of the Connect advocacy program is to leverage the voice of our global community to deliver unified messages to the Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Our ultimate goal is to facilitate a two-way stream of communication that results in solutions and positive change for the benefit of both HPE and the user community.

Advocacy, or influence, can occur using our online Advocacy Submission Form, through a Special Interest Group (SIG) or by directly reaching out to Connect. No matter which method you choose, Connect will make sure you and your organization gets the support and answers you need and deserve to be successful.



An influence commission is a chartered working group that has come together with a mission to offer feedback, evaluate and propose improvements around a specific HPE product or service. These temporary groups can be formed by Connect members throughout the year; all proposed influence commissions will be reviewed and approved by the Connect Advocacy Steering Committee.

In addition to member-driven influence commissions, the advocacy committee will select three focus areas that will serve as the primary influence commissions for the year. HPE can also bring forth proposals when they seek input from the Connect community.
