Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) hosted its HPE Channel Reignite sessions in Sydney and Melbourne last month to reconnect with the channel partner community.

The sessions marked the first in-person event the company has held in over two years and featured HPE experts from Australia and New Zealand exploring how the meaning of the 'as-a-service' concept has shifted for HPE partners in 2022.

This included looking at how customers have continued to pursue innovation in a hybrid cloud world and how to drive the reuse over recycle model and measure environmental impact.

"It was incredible to see so many of our partners in Sydney and Melbourne," HPE South Pacific managing director Stephen Bovis says.

"Everything as-a-Service is the future for HPE, and our partners are integral to that goal, so our HPE Channel Reignite series was the perfect way to not only share HPE's vision with our partners, but to also get them involved in the conversation."

Also featuring at the event was keynote speaker James Catrissian, who spoke about building resilience and a growth mindset through his expedition from Antarctica to the South Pole.

Additionally, consulting firm Korn Ferry spoke about redefining the client engagement experience and buyer journey.

"It was evident from our HPE Reignite sessions that HPE GreenLake is generating a lot of interest for our partner community," HPE South Pacific channel - alliances general manager Julie Barbieri says.

"It was great to finally reconnect with the Channel ecosystem face to face in Sydney and Melbourne and see the strategic alignment between our business and theirs.

"HPE's unwavering focus towards delivering HPE GreenLake capabilities will continue to be a big part of our strategy, and we will continue to ensure our partners are equipped with the latest training and knowledge.

"We look forward to seeing the Brisbane partner community soon."

"It was great to see the HPE leadership team with our partners," Ingram Micro vendor management senior general manager John Brown says.

"The event itself was a well-balanced blend of technology thought leadership, sales enablement and inspiring content."

The Channel Reignite sessions come after HPE recently announced a variety of new solutions to help create better business and data outcomes for enterprises.

A new HPE Machine learning Development System has been announced, with the goal of eliminating complexity and promoting AI development and training at scale.

HPE Swarm Learning, a privacy-preserving, decentralised machine learning solution, is also a key development recently announced and allows users to share learnings at the edge, or distributed sites, without compromising data privacy.

Building upon HPE's strategic investment of acquiring Determined AI, the company says the new HPE Machine learning Development System is purpose-built for AI and is a total end-to-end solution.
