BENGALURU: Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) on Wednesday announced new service offerings for customers to quickly realise the benefits of mobile-optimised digital workplace initiatives. The services focus on supporting and extending new integrated mobility solutions from Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise company, to help customers achieve seamless communication and secure collaboration.
The continued proliferation of mobile devices and cloud-based business applications have caused enterprises to revise traditional connectivity and mobility requirements in order to accommodate collaborative work environments and unconventional schedules.
As customers move to mobile-first digital workplaces, the decades of expertise and global capability that HPE has across multivendor networking and digital collaboration brings practical experience to solve the most complex challenges.
“In an age of digital disruption in the workplace, our customers are looking to us to help them solve rapidly evolving business challenges,” said Rajesh Dhar, senior director, technology services, HPE India.
“Our comprehensive portfolio of networking and mobility services are anchored by unparalleled expertise and global reach, so customers can trust HPE to provide them with the innovation needed to accelerate their digital workplace initiatives,” said Dhar.
HPE services reduce risk and implementation time while rapidly enabling user experience and drive productivity and effectiveness. With these services customers can accelerate time to value with Aruba networking, Microsoft Cloud Productivity and Citrix mobility solutions. They bring together key elements critical to the digital workplace, including strategy, assessment, design, deployment, integration, management, and optimisation as well as on-going support of Aruba networking solutions.
Aruba Infrastructure Services provides customers with network expertise from assessments to validated design and global deployment. These services are optimised for business critical applications such as Microsoft Office 365.
With the exception of HPE managed services, all other services are available for sale through channel partners, as either fully customised or as pre-defined packaged consulting services such as Aruba ClearPass Deployment and Integration Service.
HPE is also announcing the Intelligent Spaces for Meetings early access program, giving select customers an effective intersection of physical meeting spaces with digital collaboration. This solution takes the frustration out of finding spaces and provides the ability to collaborate quickly and seamlessly by automatically configuring room technology so team productivity becomes the focus.
Creating a dynamic view of meeting room status and scheduling, integrating indoor location services with digital collaboration technologies and intelligent workflow makes collaboration easy and simple for employees. This improves user experience, engagement and effectiveness and provides insights for better meeting room usage. Powered by Aruba solutions and partner technologies from Citrix and Microsoft, HPE consultants will deploy and configure an Intelligent Spaces for Meetings prototype to help make the future of the smart, mobile-optimised digital workplace a reality.
“We are excited to continue building on the strong record we have established with HPE in the enterprise,” said Giovanni Mezgec, general manager of office partner marketing, Microsoft.
“The solutions and services HPE have developed on the Microsoft platform will help our joint customers modernize their workplaces, enhance collaboration across teams and networks and take full advantage of the unique and innovative features of the Microsoft Enterprise Cloud Suite including Office 365, Skype for Business and Windows 10.”
“Citrix and HPE have a shared vision to provide people with instant, secure access to the apps, data and resources they need to work effectively, anywhere, at any time,” said Steve Blacklock, vice president, Global Strategic Alliances, Citrix.
“HPE Intelligent Spaces harnesses our joint innovation to bring these elements seamlessly together in a way that promises to transform workplace productivity.”
