How HP is using its vast Resources to Help SMB customers and Partners survive the Downturn

The fact that there 6.3m SMB customers in the U.S. and that they’re projected to grow 5x the rate of the market overall in 2009 isn’t news. The fact that the SMB market represents a $60+ billion dollar market for commercial computing products isn’t new either. But, amidst all the industry noise about how critical small business is to the US economy, what are the largest manufacturers really doing to help this customer segment, and more importantly the partners who service them, thrive and grow?

Well, sometimes bigger really can be better. With total revenues of over $120b and 8 of every 10 SMB customers already owning some HP equipment, HP is leveraging its vast resources and broad product portfolio to take a very active role in giving SMB customer and SMB-focused partners new reasons to invest in new equipment, get support and collaborate. Today, HP announced new products, new support, a new SaaS delivery model and new partner program offerings – all focused on the under-999 employee customer space.

5 Year-Olds Playing Soccer

By Diane Krakora.

I was in Las Vegas, yet again, for the start of yet another conference season. You’d  think because I met my husband at a conference in Vegas (at N+I 15 years ago) that I would have a fondness for this place.  But I don’t.  It’s noisy, smoky and usually hot, which I like, but it is actually cold this time.  No matter, most likely I won’t be going outside for the three days I’m here.

I’m here for the HP America’s Partner Conference (APC). As I waked into HP CEO and Chairman Mark Hurd’s keynote the evening prior to the start of the conference, the band was blaring and the room was packed with anticipation.
