Are you a basketball fan?  Have a favorite team?


Well, from what I did to prepare #HPDiscover with this year’s customer presenters, every one of them is my favorite team.


IT Slam Dunk, their successes in transforming IT operations, are amazing. You can experience the same excitement by registering to see them present.


Who are they?


VanCity stands out, they won this year’s awards for Customer Excellence. Jay Rooney of VanCity will describe how Canada’s largest credit union ensures uptime through end-to-end visibility, proactive control. Jay has also evaluated #OpsBbridge v10 that we are announcing in this session B827 with Jay for the first time publicly in the Americas at #HPDiscover this year. Join me in session B827 with Jay to see their story and why he is so excited about adopting this feature rich new version of #OpsBridge.


Costco and Wells Fargo have some great learnings from monitoring a large scale enterprise environment with HP OM and Agents as you can see in Sanjay’s blog here. They’ll discuss in session B614 their own experiences using automation with HP Operations Agent rollout across thousands of servers or scaling your current monitoring environment to “tens of thousands” of servers.


In session B790 how about learning how Citrix has found efficiencies through adopting the #OpsBridge to manage across enterprise applications and cloud environments, a hazardous exercise when juggling between multiple tools.


Vodafone Ireland embarked on an IT transformation journey a few years ago, and have measured some amazing successes such as 75% improvement in service delivery.  

@HPSoftware, we’re lucky to work with these guys, we get a heads up on what they intend to present.
Don’t miss them on stage this year in session B814 which promises to be packed out given the power of their testimonial. I can assure you having worked to prepare this session, it is “slam dunk power packed” with a fantastic description of their shared services, their IT operations architecture and the massive leaps they have taken in redesigning their IT landscape.
This is a #HPDiscover hot spot. Don’t miss it !!
These guys are so active at #HP Discover as you can see below, they are participating in a lot of activities, including helping us to introduce to you for the very first time, an innovative way to align business and IT. They love this new solution we are introducing in RT1251, make sure you come to see what this is, and get insight into how they plan to provide to Line of Business and IT executives.


Yep #OpsBridge is really popular, more and more each year. This year we announced an evolution program OM-to-OpsBridge that includes value-packed entitlement to people who been using HP Operations Manager for years, over 20 years in some cases. Fidelity Investments is one of those customers, and in session B1254 you’ll see how they have progressed on their journey to service maturity, and see examples of their measured success, and where they intend to go next. Tremendous insight..


Arizona Public Services will show you how their IT journey looks, and why adoption of the #OpsBridge has empowered them to make serious breakthroughs. Get to session B790 to see their story.


All the above sessions will already give you great insight into your peers’ journey’s. You’ll gain insight to see how to define your journey, and discover what kind of RoI you can measure and how from adopting the #OpsBridge in your IT operations teams. 

Our experts Mike Davies and Andy Wilkes will help you explore these topics in sessions RT1250, DT1080 where Andy will be joined by Verizon Wireless to show you best practices you can adopt.


Our partner Whitlock Infrastructure is holding a session B1703 “OMi Best Practices approach”, where their extensive experience after many years of implementing the #OpsBridge will shine.


Interested in BSM for Cloud see session RT1280 where our partner DoitWise will join expert Stefan Bergstein to discuss solutions and best practices.


Last but not least yours truly will join HP product line manager Harald Burose in session DF833 to expose the new #OpsBridge Ultimate version. It combines our innovative BigData Analytics with IT Event and Performance management. Yes, we think that this new packaging of our most powerful IT operations management solution, will help you leap to a new dimension in operations management. A space where some IT teams have already seen as much 72x improvement in the time taken to solve issues.
Amazing power in one package. We think you’ll find it unbeatable.


Finally, don’t miss the session B1247 What’s new in BSM session early in the show, on Tuesday.
It kicks off our tremendous choice of sessions I’ve detailed for you, and will announce new solutions that are already applauded by industry experts.

If you do anything, don’t miss this one.
