Mike has spent 30 years at HP in development, product management and latterly, product marketing.
Mike's team is responsible for marketing cross-IT solutions for HP Software including cloud, application transformation, and converged infrastructure.
Our weekly Twitter chat yesterday zeroed in defining converged infrastructure (CI) and the rationale behind it. CI is a hot topic for CIOs and is being driven by the search for efficiencies and better productivity in the context of cloud, Big Data and mobile.
First the numbers for yesterday's chat: 32 participants and 230 Tweets (at least three were CIOs).
Our questions were: what is CI?; how big a priority is it for 2014? and what is hyper-CI?
Use the hashtag #CIOchat to view the full stream of 230 Tweets between 2-3 p.m. EDT Thursday. We'll be back next week.
The number of small/medium businesses in the world is growing. This is, of course, recognized by governments – many Prime Ministers and Presidents are looking to SMB’s to lead their countries out of recession.
I see this trend inside HP marketing. We are increasingly using SMB’s for campaign material generation, newsletter generation, and so on.
