Hey HPE: Great Move with Microsoft Azure! Now Do This…
Three steps to consider
Now, I think the team at HPE should continue the momentum by doing these three things:
- Put a “Cloud Foundry First” strategy on top of it.
- Then rapidly expose its existing APIs. For example, 40+ Haven APIs.
Hint, hint, plus real source code for you to play with! A few months ago we built a prototype of a Service Broker for Cloud Foundry for HP Haven.
- Then add APIs from hundreds of ISVs (i.e., its existing partners via similar Service Brokers) to the services marketplace.
Why it’s important
What would be the probable impact? Another 6% jump in market cap on completion of each of the three steps and HPE will start showing its real cloud-native teeth in no-time!
Here’s my chicken-scratch rendering of how this would look:
I like this so much, I will stir up a conversation about this at the Cloud Foundry Beat event on December 17 at HP headquarters.
