Software-Defined & Cloud

Seems like the HPE Discover event that we hosted Las Vegas in June is becoming a smaller shape in my rearview mirror, but there were a couple of big thoughts that came out of the event that I wanted to keep front and center. The first one was about delivering Everything as a service by 2022, stated by Antonio Neri during his keynote. The other was this bigger realization that ITOps as we know to today is quickly shifting a DevOps and developer centric world. If IT does move away from physical management of infrastructure and starts to consume everything as a service, what do they become? And if ITOps and DevOps teams become more focused around getting applications to market as quickly as possible, what changes in their processes and culture need to change to make this happen? If you have interest, I have include a couple of thought leadership articles that might help you.
