HPE ramps up mobility services in digital workplace push

14 Apr 2016

Hewlett Packard Enterprise is ramping up its mobility push with the launch of new service offerings designed to help enterprises ‘realise the benefits of mobile-optimised digital workplace intiatives’.

The services, which are available through channel partners, are focused around supporting and extending new integrated mobility solutions from Aruba, which HPE acquired last year.

Alan Hyde, HPE South Pacific vice president and general manager, says customers are seeking help in solving rapidly evolving business challenges in an age of digital disruption in the workplace.

The new offerings include Aruba Infrastructure Services, providing network expertise from assessments to validated design and global deployment, with the services optimised for business critical applications such as Microsoft Office 365.

Aruba ClearPass Services will tailor the ClearPass policy management platform to the access and security needs for a customer’s digital workplace initiatives, including BYOD, while Aruba AirWave Services will provide centralised multi-vendor wired and wireless network visibility, management and performance monitoring across ‘many’ customer locations.

The HPE Digital Collaboration Services, focused on Microsoft Office 365, will assist customers in planning, preparing and migrating to enterprise-wide digital collaboration.

HPE says with the exception of HPE managed services, all other services are available though the vendor’s channel partners, as either fully customised or as pre-defined packaged consulting services.

The company also launched an Intelligent Spaces for Meetings early access program, providing select customers with an ‘effective intersection of physical meeting spaces with digital collaboration’.

HPE says the offering, powered by Aruba solutions and partner technologies from Citrix and Microsoft, takes the frustration out of finding spaces and provides the ability to collaborate quickly and seamlessly by automatically configuring room technology so team productivity becomes the focus.

It says collaboration is made easy and simple for employees by creating a dynamic view of meeting room status and scheduling, integrating indoor location services with digital collaboration technologies and intelligent workflow.
