HP today announced new products and services that it says will help organizations drive innovation and rapidly scale up and down to meet changing business needs.

 

New research conducted on behalf of HP shows that more than 90% of senior business decision makers believe business cycles will continue to be unpredictable in the next few years.

 

As a result, 80% recognize a need to be far more flexible in their approaches to business and technology.

 

“Technology is a fundamental contributor to business innovation,” said Ann Livermore, executive vice president, HP Enterprise Business.

 

HP’s offerings include Neoview Advantage, a new release of the HP Neoview enterprise data warehouse platform, which supports real-time insight and decision making, allowing customers to respond to business events faster.

 

It is also designed to reduce the cost of ownership with industry-standard components and prebuilt, pretested configurations optimized for warehousing.

 

The company also announced the HP Converged Infrastructure architecture, which addresses IT sprawl, “the main cause of technology spend being focused on maintenance instead of innovation.”
