HP to focus on game-changing capabilities of cloud computing at IDC's Middle East CIO Summit 2012
With thousands of successful cloud deployments, HP has helped clients get the best of a hybrid delivery approach without the complexity. By incorporating both in-house and externally sourced IT services, clients can pick the right method of delivery to effectively meet time-to-market, availability and cost requirements. Yet, security concerns and a lack of internal skills continue to challenge organizations' evolution to the cloud.
Service providers also recognize that a hybrid delivery approach requires new cloud business models that provide consumption and brokerage of technology for their customers in multiple ways. As a result, they need a technology partner that can help them capture this market opportunity.
"The high - level discussion at IDC's Middle East CIO Summit helps create a better overview of the growing role of technology in shaping the region's business dynamics," said Eyad Shihabi, Managing Director, HP Middle East. "Over the next few days at the summit HP will be discussing the real challenge for CIOs in bringing innovation and business profitability in a much shorter time frame and show the tools they need to modernize, transform, secure, optimize and deliver the Instant On Enterprise."
Cost benefits, improved service delivery, and more agile resource deployment are driving the adoption of private clouds in the Middle East, according to a recent study by International Data Corporation (IDC), the premier global market intelligence and advisory firm for the information technology and telecommunications markets.
While several organizations in the region have virtualized a significant part of their infrastructure, IDC has pointed out that the majority have not yet truly embraced cloud models. IDC will discuss critical issues concerning cloud computing in the region, particularly its impact on business and the pitfalls that should be avoided, during the exclusive two-day Middle East CIO Summit 2012, which will be held at the Le Meridien Al Aqah Beach Resort, Fujairah, UAE, starting on February 20.
HP creates new possibilities for technology to have a meaningful impact on people, businesses, governments and society. The world's largest technology company, HP brings together a portfolio that spans printing, personal computing, software, services and IT infrastructure to solve customer problems.
