Connect’s mission is simple.  To help your organization get the most out of your Hewlett Packard Enterprise technology investments through tech-targeted boot camps, technical journals and Special Interest Group communities. In order to achieve our mission, Connect provides ADVOCACY, COMMUNITY, PHILANTHROPY, and EDUCATION to HPE customers, partners and employees. 

ADVOCACY - Members Influencing HPE
Our unique partnership with HPE offers each member company — no matter its size or industry affiliation — direct access to the Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Our “Speak Now. Be Heard.” community voice program enables members to improve existing products and services, steer product change, and even influence HPE’s strategic direction.


COMMUNITY - Global Peer Community
Connect is a global community of over 70,000 HPE business technology professionals. We enable members to exchange, access, and capitalize on information to achieve organizational business objectives and drive personal career advancement. Online and in-person forums exist to get in touch with peers who share comparable job functions, utilize the same HPE products and solutions, or work close enough to meet for lunch.



EDUCATION - Educational Offerings
Education is an ongoing professional investment that increases the productivity of your company’s most important resource: your employees. Members design year-round personal educational curricula from HPE-related training offered at conference sessions, Webcasts and Chapter meetings.


PHILANTHROPY – Investing in the Future
Through philanthropic contributions from our members, The Connect Worldwide scholarship fund offers scholarships for undergraduate students pursuing degrees in technology. The Connect Future Leaders in Technology is a non-profit organization dedicated to fostering the next generation of IT leaders. Established in 2010, Connect FLIT is a separate US 501 (c)(3) corporation and all donations go directly to scholarship awards.
