HP Unveils Consulting Services to Advance Information Sharing, Improve Productivity

HP today introduced consulting services that help maximize client investments in collaboration platforms, such as Microsoft® SharePoint 2010, for greater productivity and information sharing across an enterprise.

Employees today expect familiar social and mobile tools for one-stop access to information and expertise across their personal and work environments. HP services equip enterprises for collaboration in an Instant-On world by creating an interactive working environment where employees can access applications and information anywhere and at any time.

HP Collaboration Consulting Services modernize and extend an existing collaboration infrastructure by streamlining resources, improving governance and reducing infrastructure sprawl. This enables an organization’s employees to retrieve and contribute information, forming interactive communities that improve efficiency and productivity.

“In order to help our customers improve collaboration and information sharing across their organizations, Swisscom decided to launch a managed service for hosted communications and collaboration for large corporations, “ said Michael Kerle, head of go-to-market, Corporate Business, Swisscom. “We were able to launch a solution quickly and cost-effectively enabling our customers to increase productivity by turning to HP and Microsoft, implementing Lync 2010, Exchange Server 2010, and SharePoint Server 2010 as the basis of our service.”

Bridging employees to resources for better knowledge sharing

HP Collaboration Consulting Services enable clients to use Microsoft SharePoint 2010 and other tools to help:

Enhance productivity with transformation services that provide strategy, assessment, roadmap and design services. This helps clients build an environment that enables employees to work faster and more efficiently through a shared platform while making information and resources readily available.

Streamline collaboration with planning, design and implementation services that allow clients to gain control of their SharePoint platform and reduce information sprawl. HP helps clients standardize and migrate data and applications from legacy systems, such as Lotus Notes and Novell GroupWise, and consolidate resources.
Improve their SharePoint environment with governance assurance and design services that set guidelines for proper use of SharePoint. Clients can also transparently capture, manage and secure SharePoint 2010 content in the HP TRIM enterprise records management solution which manages all other enterprise content to meet compliance obligations and reduce risk.

Enhance knowledge sharing by working with HP to classify, store and locate documents, creating an organized structure that increases information usability.
Use social networking to build community and collaboration among peers, employees and partners with HP Social Collaboration Consulting Services. Clients also can attract a new generation of employees that are accustomed to working with social channels.

“Employees are often disconnected from the information and resources that help them best navigate their roles,” said Tom Norton, director, Microsoft Corp. and Client Consulting, HP. “HP Collaboration Consulting Services make information personal, relevant and usable, and quickly connect employees to colleagues, boosting the quality of business decisions.”

HP Collaboration Consulting Services build on the HP Virtual Workplace offerings, which enhance a global workforce’s ability to connect, communicate and collaborate to create a competitive advantage. HP Collaboration Consulting Services help businesses and governments in their pursuit of an Instant-On Enterprise. In a world of continuous connectivity, the Instant-On Enterprise embeds technology in everything it does to serve customers, employees, partners and citizens with whatever they need, instantly.

HP’s premier client event, HP DISCOVER, takes place Nov. 29 – Dec. 1 in Vienna, Austria. The event showcases how organizations can get started on their Instant-On Enterprise journeys.
