A major shift is taking place in the world of technology today, with an explosion in data and application growth expected in the next 5 to 10 years and it is driven by cloud, mobility and big data. By the year 2020, it’s estimated that there will be 30 billion devices generating 40 trillion gigabytes of data across 10 million mobile apps for 8 billion people. This shift will not only create new opportunities for businesses, but also a new set of challenges and demands to keep up with the ever-evolving technology. Companies hoping to get ahead may choose to remain stagnant at their own peril because if they don’t take the lead in digital innovation, then a competitor will.
Employing the right technology can help small and mid-size businesses deliver the products and services their customers need whilst improving efficiency and lowering costs. To be competitive, the modern enterprise has to support seamless communication, ubiquitous access and high-performing applications—all without jeopardising data security and corporate assets. HPE Just Right IT program was first introduced in 2013 with the aim to help companies make the right decisions by delivering the right compute for data centre modernisation with HPE’s broad server portfolio and create a flexible environment that can scale and adapt when the need arises.
As an example, there’s a wide range of rack and tower server options available from HPE ProLiant series to meet various business demands. HPE ProLiant, the undisputed server market share leader, is available in three families:
• HPE ProLiant MicroServer family
• HPE ProLiant ML family
• HPE ProLiant DL family
While all three families are designed to handle multiple workloads—IT infrastructure, business applications, web, collaboration, Big Data, analytics and more—each family is optimised for specific use cases to cater for businesses at different phases in their IT journey, from those looking for their first server to companies that are upgrading or scaling up. HPE Flex Solutions are specially designed just for small and midsize businesses with affordable, easy-to-use server solution packages that include everything a company may need to get up and running quickly even if they don’t already possess dedicated IT resources.
Thus, it’s not only essential for an organisation to leverage the latest technology to their advantage, but also to partner with a proven IT expert such as HPE to take their business to the next level.
