HP Discover Frankfurt will take place next week in Frankfurt Germany. This is HP’s premier conference for customers and partners to get a glimpse of the newest technology releases HP has to offer. With lots of negative air time lately, I am betting on HP to come out with some extraordinary announcements leading into Meg Whitman’s 2014 strategy.I decided to compile a quick list of interesting events and links.

Opening Plenary Session – Tuesday December 4 – 14:00 – 15:30

Some of the hot topics I am looking forward to at the event surround HP Software, HP Storage and HP Networking and the SDN message which has come loud and clear over the last few months.

Below are links to the respective blogs.

HP Software Solutions Blog

Having worked with HP Software the last 13 years, I am always excited to sit with the product teams and discuss migrations plans and understand the advances in the software space. Finally the industry is recognizing the Software Defined Data Center is here and in control!

HP Software Defined Networking Blog Since the Interop Conference in NYC in October, there has been little news surrounding it’s plans. Excited to hear more about HP, SDN and 2013.

HP Storage Blog – Lots of rumblings coming out of HP Storage. Sounds like some exciting news coming! Check out HP Storage Guy’s Blog (CalvinZ) for recommended Storage Sessions!

Another exciting initiative I have been collaborating on is the HP Enterprise 2020. There are some thought provoking discussions going on which make many of us rethink how the enterprise will look and feel in 2020. Learn more about HP Enterprise 2020 - Collaborate on the future of business. Take part in HP’s Enterprise 20/20 vision. These sessions have the potential to get the mind thinking about the future enterprise. Make sure to add then to your agenda.
