End to end approach to manage the risk of the transformation journey

Creating an agile network that can mirror the scale up/scale down capabilities of compute and store environments is nothing short of a necessity. Enablers such as software defined networking (SDN) can put customers on the path to get there.

However, the transformation journey to an agile network while maintaining business continuity can be a daunting task.

HP Trusted Network Transformation focuses on an end to end approach to manage the risk of the transformation journey in partnership with our customers.

This approach is based on HP’s own data center network transformation and extensive experience working with customers around the globe across many industries. The approach addresses critical elements for success such as:

  • Business and IT alignment
  • Infrastructure and operations validation
  • Management of Change
  • Program Management and Governance
  • Sponsorship

For success in significant IT transformations, addressing people and process changes is as important as technology implementation. HP can be your trusted partner for a successful network transformation journey.

HP Trusted SDN Security Deployment

HP and our partners offer SDN Apps that enables customers to re-imagine their security infrastructure. HP’s Trusted SDN Security Deployment is aimed at helping customers to successfully integrate and deploy multiple SDN security apps without impacting business continuity, and get simplified, coordinated security with surgically precise control.

To start, we help customers assess required capabilities and gain an understanding of current state, including selection of appropriate apps that makes sense for their objectives and environment. We then offer app interaction testing to understand what, if any, challenges co-existence of selected apps may pose. We can also host or design a lab to test scenarios created through a validated design step. This would then feed the validated integration and deployment step with learnings to deliver a smooth release to production. Once in production, HP can offer support for the deployed environment and training and certification for the deployed products and solutions.
