Greetings HPE Community,
This is usually the C2 issue where I get to write about the recent HPE Discover European event but, as we all know, that didn’t take place this year and has been replaced with the ongoing Discover More events around the globe. We at Connect have received great feedback about these shows and encourage you all to attend when it comes to a city near you. Of course, the venerable HPE Discover show in Las Vegas is still going strong with another event planned for this coming June!
This issue of C2 will serve as a bit of a swan song to part of my community involvement, as my term as President of the Board of Connect will be coming to a close at the end of 2019. It’s been my distinct pleasure to be so heavily involved in the user group for the greater HPE. As someone who comes from a Mission Critical Server background, entering a space where the users are from so many different walks of technology within HPE was a bit overwhelming at first. But it didn’t take long to realize that a passion for technology comes well before any ties to a particular hardware or software, as we are all interested in the advancement of the technology space. We join user events around the globe and share our thoughts and ideas about the future. It’s these thoughts and ideas that make technology advance, and the user group community is there to foster that and bring it to fruition.
It’s been my privilege to serve as board president and I’m just as excited as all of you to see where technology goes in the coming years and what role HPE will play. I’m sure I’ll still be discussing this with many of you at shows in the not so distant future.
