Editor’s Letter – Spring 2018


The New Normal is Hybrid IT

Welcome to the Spring edition of Connect Converge.

You’ve no doubt heard the term digital transformation by now, it has become a part of our everyday vernacular in technology today. It is reshaping the modern enterprise. We know that getting to hybrid is about managing both sides of the coin; taking the best of the old, and adding the best of the new and strategically integrating the two. In our feature article, “Simplifying Hybrid IT for a Successful Digital Transformation,” Gary Thome explains how a hybrid IT strategy is revolutionizing the customer journey to the digital transformation age. He says the “picture is not always rosy.” Forrester Consulting tells us that two-thirds of firms end up with hybrid by accident- and not by design. Only 33 percent design a comprehensive hybrid IT strategy from the ground up. Enter HPE OneSphere. To innovate on behalf of customers, experts like Optio Data, a Data Strategy company, are all in on helping customers navigate the challenges.

As we countdown to HPE Discover Las Vegas 2018 – Connect looks forward to seeing you on the show floor.
