Nimsdai 'Nims' Purja

World Record-Breaking Mountaineer

Nimsdai 'Nims' Purja makes the impossible, possible. Available on Netflix now, 14 Peaks: Nothing is Impossible, follows him as he risks everything to smash the record for climbing all 14 of the world's 'death zone' mountains in under 7 months - a feat thought impossible.

In January 2021, he also smashed the last mountaineering challenge - with ten Nepalese climbers - Nimsdai and his team, along with team Mingma G and one mountaineer from team SST, officially became the first mountaineers to ever summit K2 in winter. The team sang the Nepal national anthem as they strode arm in arm to the summit, ensuring that history remembers Nepal for the proud tradition of mountaineering forever.

Known for his positive mindset, the former Gurkha and UK Special Forces operative, aims to inspire everyone that no matter where they come from, or what their goal is, that they can achieve their new possible.

Catalysts for autonomous operations from Edge to cloud


Manufacturing is one of the most data-rich industries, yet much of that data remains unused due to silo’d processes, legacy plant technology and a proliferation of unstructured data from digital technologies ranging from the IoT, AI, and the web. To realize the potential of improved factory productivity and product quality at scale, manufacturers must integrate real-time factory data with manufacturing enterprise data. Attend this session and hear how one of our customers in the electronics industry reduced product defects with real-time video analytics quality assurance and an AI-enabled edge-to-cloud data modernization platform.

Improve the retail experience and reduce shrinkage.


As data continues its exponential growth, the ability for individuals to interpret and analyse it in near time diminishes at the same rate. Retailers require solutions that enable their organisation to scale linearly with their access to data and move to real-time and predictive models to outpace the competition. Attend this session and hear how HPE’s Edge Platform and Everseen's visual AI solution can improve retail experience and reduce shrinkage.

Intelligent Warehouse


Supply chains worldwide continue to be disrupted by several externalities in this Just-In-Time world.  Business impact can be felt across: inventory holding costs, customer satisfaction, inventory turn, order fulfilment lead times and customer returns.  Starting with fast, reliable and secured communication at warehouses and logistics hubs, operators can start to leverage technologies that can help reduce the impact of externalities and improve warehouse operations.  Attend this session to learn about how Aruba, Ipsotek and Cosmiqo are offering solutions that help connect and protect warehouses, ensure safety of workers whilst monitoring operational metrics, and support the business transition from manual warehousing operations to one that is process-driven and/or autonomous.

Leveraging digital technology to shape patient care and improve outcome


The dynamic demand for healthcare is challenging caregivers to help more patients in less time.  Secure and reliable access to data is crucial for quality patient care. It provides in-depth insight into histories, diagnoses, treatments, and other sensitive information that is vital to deliver the right care quickly and effectively.  To accomplish this, caregivers must have the flexibility to collaborate and treat patients, wherever they are—with the ability to quicky, capture, and communicate, patients’ personal health information (PHI) securely.  Attend this session to learn how to empower successful clinical outcomes with VDI and virtualized healthcare.

Building investment vitality to propel your digital strategy


The last 2 years have changed a lot of plans and how we normally conduct our lives. Even for the most well run businesses, it was a time  of survival and wasn’t without sacrifice. Many organizations have put off investment in innovation due to the uncertainty introduced by the shifts in the business landscape. Motivated by the idea of a post-pandemic world, organizations are looking for ways to move ahead and accelerate, but they need help. Attend this session to learn how HPE Financial Services can help organizations build their investment vitality to propel their business and digital strategies.

Cloud vs on prem…is that really the question?


Cloud vs on prem is that really the question? Every organization today has to ask the question where should I go? Is there one that fit all solutions? Is there be some business drive or architecture design principle that can help on that journey? What else need to be considered? Attend this session to hear first-hand on how to drive this transformation and answer your key questions.

Becoming Data-First: Power Private Cloud and Edge with HCI


Data is the lifeblood of every business, and thus many organizations are actively seeking new ways to harness data and apps. Data-first leaders are transforming faster than their competitors. More than half the time, many organizations buy more infrastructure than they ultimately need — wasteful overprovisioning that drives up costs. Attend this session to gain insights on why digital transformation is incomplete without data-first modernization and how IT leaders can eliminate wasteful overprovisioning, gain productivity, and cost savings with AI-driven operations powered by HPE's disaggregated and edge-optimized HCI solutions.

Enable Digital transformation with Scalable & Resilient technology solutions at the EDGE.
