Hewlett Packard Enterprise commit to UK’s digital future

Hewlett Packard Enterprise has shown it is fully committed to the UK’s digital future by investing in a brand new customer engagement centre in the heart of London.

The new centre is it’s first in EMEA and provides a hub dedicated to demonstrating it’s technology and services to new customers. The site allows clients to meet HPE business experts and leaders and receive tailored advice on how its services can improve their business.

The 14,000 sqft facility is the latest example of the US technology company backing the future of the UK’s digital economy and forms part of HPE’s prestigious new City of London office – a 67,000 sqft single occupancy building on Aldermanbury Square, London.

HPE will customise every engagement to meet the customer’s needs, demonstrating specifically how its services can deliver better business outcomes through four key areas of expertise:

Transforming to hybrid infrastructure – helping customers bridge their existing IT infrastructure to a cloud-based environment that optimises performance with the best mix of resources.
Empowering data-driven organisations – using big data and analytics technologies to generate real-time insights from data, allow faster decision making, boost customer satisfaction, create new business opportunities, and increase competitive advantage.

Protecting digital enterprises – managing risk monitoring operations, protecting systems from cyber threats, and sustaining operational integrity to ensure security of digital assets, intellectual property, and customer data.

Enabling workplace productivity – creating best-in-class experiences for employees, customers and partners through mobile and networking solutions.

Peter Ryan, HPE’s senior vice president and managing director for EMEA, said: “With technology transforming businesses and entire industries at an unprecedented pace, our duty is to help customers apply the power of technology to unlock the potential of their ideas. We see the EMEA region as one of the world’s most dynamic technological hubs and fertile environments for this revolution, hence our decision to create the first CEC outside of the US in London.”

The UK is already HPE’s second largest market globally and the increased investment demonstrates its belief in the country’s economy, and the vibrancy of its technology sector and start-up community.

Last month, HPE hosted Discover – its largest annual customer and partner event – in London. The company plans to bring Discover back to the capital this year, from November 29 to December 1.
