Generative AI will impact every organization on the planet. It is now both a business imperative in order to survive and a competitive advantage needed to thrive.  And there is no shortage of creativity in identifying use cases with many live experiments running and a long list of candidate cases to qualify.  But getting it right is challenging.  AI is a different type of workload, expertise is in short supply (and high demand), the ISV landscape is complex and benefit realization can be as much an art as a science.  Succeeding in the AI era therefore requires alliances, innovation, efficiency and of course speed — as a great leader often told me, “the future belongs to the fast”.

Succeeding in the AI era therefore requires alliances, innovation, efficiency and of course speed……as a great leader often told me, “the future belongs to the fast”.

From my many conversations with customers, technologists and HPE’s alliance partners on AI, a number of key drivers have become clear. Organizations have learned lessons from the cloud era, specifically on over-dependance. Personalization is absolutely critical, so open-source models are increasingly important. Data control and sovereignty are non-negotiable, especially in regulated and data-rich industries.  Proximity to data, especially at the edge, is essential. The culmination of these requirements has seen a surge in demand for AI private cloud capacity — especially for inference, tuning and RAG requirements within enterprise organizations.

What a time to be the global leader in private cloud platforms!

The newly announced NVIDIA AI Computing by HPE is a portfolio of co-developed AI solutions and joint go-to-market integrations that enable enterprises to accelerate the adoption of generative AI.

Among the portfolio’s key offerings is HPE Private Cloud AI, a first-of-its-kind solution that provides the deepest integration to date of NVIDIA AI software, computing, and networking with HPE’s AI software, storage, compute and services.

The new HPE Private Cloud AI solution enables fast deployment of an enterprise-grade AI platform fully integrated with a cloud experience that keeps data private and integrates with popular AI tools that speed developer productivity, allowing for quick wins with immediate business impact. Even more can be achieved as enterprises select the right use cases, pipeline the right data sources, bring in the right ISVs to deliver the solution, and ultimately make the AI ‘sing and dance’. This is where the right people and expertise will make the difference; both in terms of faster time to value and industry-specific AI-powered business outcomes.

Alliances and AI services

The full lifecycle of AI services spans from day minus one consulting through to day two run and optimize, covering strategy, skills, data, architecture, and solutions.  HPE has a comprehensive set of capabilities across the AI lifecycle and strategic collaborations with key alliance partners. Collectively, HPE and our partners offer customers access to the best AI talent in the market with vertical expertise, data expertise, and platform integrations that enable a high-quality experience and ultimately reach faster time to value.

Our partnerships span a broad ecosystem of AI leaders starting with NVIDIA for technology co-development and technical skills training. HPE is also closely aligned with key global systems integrators (SIs) and professional services organizations including Deloitte with deep industry expertise, proven vertical use cases built on HPE technology and NVIDIA software to help drive impactful transformations for enterprises. HCLTech and Wipro are also integrating HPE Private Cloud AI into their unique AI capabilities, enabling tailored solutions that meet our joint customers’ AI needs.  Plus, our AI partner of the year, Infosys, is offering a full stack AI solution across a hybrid multi-cloud environment.  In addition, both across our alliances and directly, we work with a number of industry and solution-specific ISVs to integrate their innovation and unlock value.

at the end of the day…..experience is everything.

All together HPE offers a unique AI private cloud solution and the most complete alliance partnerships in the industry. Operating across the AI service lifecycle: from use case development and prioritization to data readiness, developer productivity, fully managed platforms, and benefit realization. Which together enables a truly differentiated experience. And at the end of the day, experience is everything.
