Together with a panel of industry experts and HPE leaders, I’ll be talking about how small and midsize businesses can regain financial and workforce sustainability, monetize a digital business, and innovate at the edge with new technologies. Business continuity is critically important for small and midsized businesses in the wake of COVID-19. Speed with foresight is more important than ever to connect with your customers digitally and to find process efficiencies.

Discussion questions include:

  • What have we seen as the impact of COVID19 in small and midsize companies and midmarket customers in the recent months?​
  • In today’s environments, what are some solutions that can enable our ability to work remotely and to accelerate going digital?
  • Cash flow is definitely top of mind for many businesses; what are the things small and midsize companies can consider when it comes to financial solutions? ​
  • What new technologies are being used at the edge to help drive innovation and new customer experiences?​
  • How should small and midsized businesses evaluate cloud-base solutions vs. on-prem IT solutions?  What is the best way to manage applications and data in a hybrid environment?
