Meeting real-time demands with the Instant-On Enterprise

Let’s face it: the world is changing. Today, everything is mobile, connected, interactive, immediate and fluid. To gain a competitive or service advantage in the face of these new customer and constituent patterns, technology must be at the very forefront of enterprise innovation and growth. Tomorrow’s leaders will be organizations that use technology to capitalize on – instead of simply adapt to – changing customer expectations.

At HP, we have a vision for these organizations. It is called the Instant-On Enterprise. The Instant-On Enterprise learns swiftly and continuously to close the expectation gap between what customers and citizens expect and what the enterprise can deliver. The Instant-On Enterprise embeds technology into everything it does to make products, services and information faster and more reliable and to provide value at every touch point.

At HP, we can embed technology to deliver innovation at every point in your enterprise that matters, from mobile devices to global data centers. We can integrate and automate the enterprise and technology across the entire value chain. And by doing that, we unleash the power of people by giving them access to the information and applications necessary to help accelerate innovation.

"Israel is a country lacking the resources of oil, gas and water. We are small in size but large in our brain power, and the challenges that we have overcome during the past 60 years, in addition to the nature of the Jewish People, always unsatisfied with everything, have led us to establish a model country in which our relative advantage is the mind, the ability to create and invent and the Israeli vision".
