In the Age of Insight, data has become the heart of every digital transformation initiative in every industry. Data is everywhere but accessing it without disrupting productivity is a key pain point. For most organizations, significant challenges remain to successfully execute data-first modernization initiatives.

Your business needs a simplified approach to data. An approach that delivers a cloud-native experience without moving everything into the cloud and replacing one proprietary platform for another.

In this virtual event, we have shown how HPE can help you to unify, modernize, analyze and protect all of your data, from edge-to-cloud, in any and every place it's stored, so that you get a sustainable competitive advantage.

An innovative event experience

In tune with the trending concept of “metaverse”, attendees joined in an unconventional, exciting and entertaining 3D virtual world where they could explore with their own avatar with many opportunities to engage and interact in fun and effective ways.

Whatever their technical or business role, they found many places in this event world where to be inspired and get the most out of their data. They learned, sharpened their skills, met and hanged out with fellow tech enthusiasts, data aficionados, business disruptors and overall innovation devotees.

The event is now over, but here below, you can still view the replays of the sessions.

The data driven future is already here, it’s just not evenly distributed!
Time is constant and the same for everyone, but we are not moving in the same speed; that’s a problem, but as always a huge opportunity for some. At least for the ones up to speed! How will HPE´s strategy on EaaS, edge to core help customers to gain the speed and flexibility needed for the data driven organisation.
Peter Werdenhoff,
CTO Sweden, HPE
AI: Delivering AI at Scale and into Production
The $15.7 trillion opportunity with AI is here, but the vast majority of AI projects are failing to scale because of a lacking 'enterprise-wide' scalable AI strategy. At the same time AI Inference at the edge is taking over cloud-based AI strategies. At HPE we understand the convergence of HPC and AI and know how to deliver HPC Enabled AI at scale but also how to operationalize and scale AI at the edge as deliver massive productivity and efficiency gains and cost savings. Lets discuss about AI ... at scale.
Sorin Cheran,
PhD, VP, Fellow, Artificial Intelligence Strategy and Solutions Group, HPE
Scale vs Scalability: Getting flexibility from edge to cloud
Scalability is much more than just large scale. Change is inevitable, but a system with scalability gives you flexibility to deal with change without having to re-architect. Using real-world examples, we’ll show how HPE Ezmeral Data Fabric lets you scale up or down, run legacy applications alongside modern analytics/AI applications, seamlessly deal with hardware failures and handle geo-distributed data from edge to cloud.

Principal Technologist, HPE & former committer Apache Software projects

Category Manager DACH GreenLake, HPE
How to Deal with the Coming Upside-down Internet
Your business almost certainly doesn’t actually happen in a data center. It happens where you touch your customers or where you make things. Moving machine intelligence to that point or near it is the basic point of edge computing. But this edge computing is changing the very structure of the Internet. Computing at the edge, in the core and in the cloud in a coordinated and sensible way can’t happen with more of the same old methods. Let's dig into what is changing, and why, and how you can adapt and thrive.
