HP is one company that is transforming and transitioning by the day. Having split into two independent entitiesHP Inc. and HPE in 2015, the company overall is making concerted efforts to carve a niche in the ever-changing marketplace. After selling its services business to CSC, there was a perception in the market that HPE has totally exited the services business. To put that perception to rest, HPE launched a new technology services organization by end of the fiscal called Pointnext. With Pointnext, HPE is looking at accelerating its digital transformation play and hasten hybrid cloud mandates.
So if one looks at HPE’s play in India right now, company sources say that it has a strong presence in the BFSI sector with most of the leading banks in the country running on HPE platform. Recently, HPE has successfully concluded a 2 billion bank accounts benchmarking activity on HPE Mission Critical x86 platform for one of the largest banks in the world. This perhaps is the largest benchmarking of its kind.
The company says that it has successfully provided some of the top banks in the country with robust solutions like network layer security and complex data management platforms.
Globally, it is very strong in the telecommunications industry and has replicated the same strategy in India by executing multiple projects for various telcos in the country. One of the top 3 telcos has implemented its storage technology to track customer behavior in terms of response time. Additionally, HPE is also working closely with some of the established and emerging service providers to enable them to pursue a cloud business model and provide IT solutions to a large number of businesses across the country.
In the manufacturing vertical, HPE is working with one of the top three commercial vehicle manufacturers that chose to modernize their ERP application landscape using HPE Synergy – its composable infrastructure platform.
In this backdrop, HPE’s aim is to be a technology partner to many such organizations – from very large banks to the cutting-edge fin-tech players, to the large telcos, to innovative VAS players.
In the Smart Cities space, the company says it is committed to helping various central and state government departments and agencies leverage cutting-edge information technology to improve the quality of life for every Indian citizen. For instance, the company continues to partner with various state governments and healthcare institutions to set-up HPE eHealth Centres (eHCs) across the country, which are designed to address the need for affordable healthcare in emerging cities. On the NSM front, the company is aligned with the project’s objectives and will work to provide comprehensive value-based solutions in order to meet the government’s ambitious supercomputing plans to build world-class and robust technology platforms.
