HPE GreenLake: IT Flexibility on Steroids (Video)

Peters_Discover_Yow_InterviewSure, the letters "i" and "t" can be found together in the word "flexibility," but getting genuine flexibility in terms of the provision of IT - in other words to build IT capabilities dynamically around necessary outcomes rather than foundational inputs - has long remained a big challenge for the industry and consumers alike, both operationally and commercially.

HPE appears to have not only the necessary operational/portfolio scale but also the business desire, to begin to effect real change. While at HPE's recent Discover event, I sat down with Scott Yow (VP, Products and Solutions, HPE PointNext) to get to the crux of what its new GreenLake offering means. As he explains, it's way beyond merely flexible consumption (which HP/HPE itself has offered for the best part of a decade and which many vendors successfully sell today), and instead focuses on delivering a "Right Mix" of IT needs-and-outcomes-based capabilities across time, across applications, and across on/off premises.
