Data Pipeline - Optimizing Insights from Edge to Cloud
Viviane Schmidt, HPE
Dennis Geisse, HPE

+ Read more

Moving data between systems or from edge devices to the data centers usually requires many steps: from copying data, to moving it from an edge device to an on-premise location or into the cloud, to reformatting it or joining it with other data sources. A data pipeline is the sum of all these steps, and its job is to ensure that these steps all happen fast and reliably to the dataset. Hence, the proposed solution comprises the establishment of an end-to-end data pipeline from the edge through “streaming analytics” and big data to the machine learning capabilities at the core. This is done by leveraging the established reference architecture from recent projects.

We will discuss the collaboration and partnership between Schneider Electric and HPE to drive innovation at the enterprise and industrial edge to include new integrated vertical applications and management capabilities.

B - BMW Group High Performance D3 Platform
Marcus Brunner, BMW
+ Read more

The new BMW Group High Performance D3 platform represents a key milestone on the BMW Group’s roadmap to highly and fully automated driving. The BMW Group Technology Partner is DXC. The High Performance D3 platform is based on HPE Infrastructure. The “D3” in the new IT platform’s name stands for Data-Driven Development, which forms the basis for the development and validation of highly and fully automated driving functions. Data-Driven Development is an indispensable tool in securing the safety and reliability of the Level 3 system to be offered in the BMW iNEXT in late 2021.

Using a single platform for data storage, processing and AI training lowers the hardware and software requirements, thereby reducing costs and complexity. Data can be gathered globally but monitored centrally. This has the effect of maximizing efficiency and cutting costs.

E - Medical Imaging aus der Cloud, die fortschreitende Digitalisierung in der Medizin
Tom Van Mulders, HPE
Immo Neumann, GE Medical

+ Read more

Mehrere tausende von Bildern werden täglich von Radiologen und anderen Spezialisten befundet. Eine Flut an Datenmengen mittels derer eine schnellstmögliche und genaue Diagnose für den Patienten gestellt werden muss, die oft lebensentscheidend ist. Oft holen sie sich eine zweite Meinung bei anderen Medizinern ein. Das kostet zum Teil wertvolle Zeit.

Demo Theater Sessions A-E
A - “Alexa, please deploy SAP HANA fully compliant to all related SAP Notes in 15 Minutes!”
Daniel Frommel, HPE
Peter Körner, Red Hat

+ Read more

Deploying SAP HANA is a tedious task and often takes several days to complete. Lots of SAP Notes need to be followed and the deployment itself is not just “yum install”. We show in a live demo on stage how automation eases the whole process, being cloud / “on premise” agnostic, assures repeatability, and adds searchable mandatory deployment documentation with no additional effort. We will discuss related operations concepts and strategies that will benefit from Ansible automation.

B - Functional Testing on Fully Autonomous Driving Functions – How to Solve the 10bn Mile Problem
Thomas Meier, HPE
Martin Eichhorn, DXC

+ Read more

In traditional functional testing, simulation prepares the build of the expensive hardware-in-loop (HIL) system and delay to build even more expensive prototype vehicles for final road testing. On this background, in the conventional model, approximate accuracy of the simulation used to be acceptable. However, to verify and validate SAE Level 5, there is far too much functional testing to be performed to ever imagine doing this in a real road test – some speak about having to drive 10 billion miles. We’ll discuss how verification and validation has to be used to prove the accuracy of exact simulation models to bypass road testing and confidently “drive” the billion miles in pure simulation.

C - HPE + Cray undisputed global leader in HPC and AI deliver IT as a Service

Hewlett Packard Enterprise Discover More Munich General Session

We are creating a world where everything computes -- where everyone and everything will be connected, powered by intelligence and informed by data. In this world, successful enterprises will invent, reinvent and drive new outcomes at warp speed and hyper-efficiency. At Tuesday’s General Session, hear from Hewlett Packard Enterprise President and Chief Executive Officer, Antonio Neri and his co-speakers, to explore how to best transform your technology, people and economics in order to connect all of your data, all of your edges and all of your clouds, everywhere.

The Intelligent Edge is here

The Intelligent Edge intersects people, places, things and their data. Data that can be transformed into insights that digitally redefine experiences and create new efficiencies. At HPE Discover More, we highlight how these new experiences and efficiencies enable citizens, customers, employees, and growth. In the presentation, HPE lays out the elements of the Intelligent Edge, and how it helps you digitally redefine your world.

Accelerate your transformation to hybrid cloud

Everyone’s on a transformation journey – the key is driving speed in today’s hybrid reality. We live in a hyper-connected world where everyone and increasingly everything is generating and sharing data, creating new value and driving a new speed of business. Hybrid cloud success stems from a strategy spanning technology, people, and economics. We will share how we can help you identify the right mix of clouds for your apps and workloads, adopt new IT consumption models, better manage your clouds, and modernize your infrastructure for cloud experiences on- and off-premises.

Accelerate Everything with the Intelligent Data Platform

The Intelligence Era is giving birth to the Intelligent Enterprise. An enterprise that is Always-On, Always Fast, Always Agile, and Built for Innovation. With data at the heart of everything you do, you need to unlock all the value out of your data. Our Intelligent Data Platform is built upon workload-optimized systems for hybrid cloud and underpinned by HPE InfoSight, the industry’s most advanced AI for infrastructure. Join us to see how we recently advanced the Intelligent Data Platform in a big way – with HPE Primera, HPE SimpliVity, HPE Nimble Storage dHCI, HPE Hybrid Cloud for Google Cloud’s Anthos and, with HPE BlueData.
