HP Unveils Post-merger Enterprise Mobility Solutions Portfolio

Peter Blackmore Briefs Customers on HP's Continued Focus on Enterprise Mobility to Drive Market Leadership

HP (NYSE: HPQ) today unveiled its consolidated portfolio of enterprise mobility solutions that integrate the best technologies and intellectual capital from across the new HP to help customers improve productivity and performance.

Addressing attendees at HP World, the annual HP customer event, Peter Blackmore said that the company is committed to helping enterprises design and deploy mobility solutions that enable their employees, customers and partners to access the right information when they need it.

"Customers are seeking better ways to compete in today's global marketplace by extending the usability of data and applications for an increasingly mobile workforce and supply-chain network," said Peter Blackmore, executive vice president, HP Enterprise Systems Group. "Early adopters are seeing benefits of mobility that range from operational efficiencies to new revenue opportunities.

"The new HP brings the industry experience and portfolio breadth and depth to support our customers with end-to-end enterprise mobility solutions most competitors can't deliver. Our pragmatic, focused approach addresses specific business needs, minimizing our customers' investment and ensuring rapid deployment."

Central to the new HP's enterprise mobility strategy is its ability to draw on capabilities from across the company to form a portfolio of comprehensive solutions. HP provides complete solutions that unify a spectrum of expert services, infrastructure technologies and innovative devices to foster business agility and create competitive advantage for enterprise customers of all sizes.

HP helps enterprises from architecture through implementation by:

  • Assisting enterprises to identify high-impact targets for mobility solutions and evaluating usage scenarios and return on investment analysis to determine dramatic bottom-line results;
  • Architecting and implementing repeatable solutions, including applications, server and network management, security and end-user support;
  • Managing these solutions to help customers in pursuit of a continuous 24x7 enterprise and remote operation that delivers results; and
  • Working with long-time mobile operator partners to ensure that enterprise solutions take full advantage of public network technologies.

HP addresses customers' needs for the mobile office, public and enterprise wireless LANs, as well as specific vertical markets including transportation, manufacturing, pharmaceutical, retail, government and healthcare.

"Successful deployment of a mobile infrastructure enables a company to complete the build-out of valuable employee- and partner-facing applications, effectively including those users who are usually away from network connected offices. Finishing this build-out in turn offers businesses benefit from shortened sales cycles, faster decision-making and increased customer loyalty," said Peter Christy, principal, NetsEdge Research Group. "HP has assembled an outstanding portfolio and is poised to drive the growing enterprise mobility market. Its ability to offer solutions for infrastructure and access wrapped by viable services makes the company a logical choice for enterprises looking for ways to improve their businesses."
