2 Today’s Agenda Revolution in Support Services HP’s Point of View
Datacenter Care Revolution in Support Services HP’s Point of View Datacenter Care structure and benefits As you can see, we’re using a BOLD word to talk about support services– revolutionary. We’ll first touch on what’s driving the revolution, then compare what we’re calling old world versus new world, touch briefly on our Point of View, and then Scott will do a deep dive on our new Always On Support Services Portfolio, and we’ll end with how customers will benefit from our revolutionary approach. So, what’s driving this revolution….

3 Data centers converging, increasing demand driving more to the cloud
Servers Traditional Private Public Business Users Developers Individuals Storage Power & cooling Management software Network I hope you’ve been hearing our HP Converged Infrastructure story. It’s all about how technology is coming together as the way to build data centers of the future and overcome IT sprawl. But, it’s more than the hardware.. It’s processes, it’s tools all the way to the facilities. And, I don’t have to tell YOU how the cloud is changing and shaping our customers IT strategy. HP has been leading here with major investments in converged infrastructure because we believe it is the right architectural strategy for customers to take maximum advantage of virtualization, cloud as a service, as well as green IT and other strategic customer initiatives. But what does this mean for support? Legacy support services were designed using a break/fix model for a single piece of equipment that resides in a technology silo. Today, however, that equipment is likely part of a virtualized, multi-vendor or cloud environment with interdependencies across the IT infrastructure. This brings a whole new level of complexity to operations. When a problem occurs, diagnosing problems can take more time, and each hour of unplanned downtime can cost the average enterprise $10 million [footnote]. As a result, modern environments require a whole new support mindset from technology leaders. Now let’s look at what the old world of support looks like and how HP is leading out with the new world of support

4 Old world support vs. new world support
Who are You? IT Sprawl and Finger-Pointing Forced Trade-off between high-touch (at high-cost) & low-touch (at low cost) Reactive Lock-In/Limited Choice Know ME and let me get my support when, where and how I want it Make your support offering straightforward and provide a single point of contact Get me to your best people fast Anticipate problems and resolve them proactively Support more than just hardware, support integrated platforms or better yet, my complete environment In the Old World of Support: Customers were forced to go through multiple steps and questions before their support provider knew who they were, what products they had. There were forced trade-offs. On one end of the spectrum, support vendors provided their highest levels of support by placing resident experts on a customer’s site. Customers who couldn’t justify the expense of this high touch approach often had to deal with offshore call centers, verifying the serial numbers and warranty or contract status of the systems that needed attention, and the inevitable finger pointing on whether it was a hardware or software problem. Disparate islands of IT systems and IT sprawl were the norm with no accountability for end-to-end support of the IT environment. Companies spend on average $24M over 3 years on manual operations to support servers. This is money not being spent on innovation. Customers were locked-in to limited choices, both in types of support offerings they could receive and who could deliver their support. Support was reactive in nature…you waited for a problem to occur and then you reacted, costing companies both time and money in that unplanned downtime costs clients $10M per hour. Today we’re talking to you about a New World of Support with HP Always On Support: With our Personalized Support experience leveraging Insight Online and Insight Remote Support we not only know who you are, but we know what products you have and we know their warranty and support contract status. And we can deliver support anywhere and anytime with the industry’s first cloud-based support portal. With our Proactive support experience, we proactively address problems before they occur and give you immediate access to the experts (e.g. direct access to level 2 support and no more dealing with escalations through multiple call centers) and you receive the expert guidance you need to minimize downtime and optimize performance. For example, our customers can address unplanned downtime 66% faster and resolve support issues on the first attempt 95% of the time. Our Simplified support experience means you receive simple, straightforward support choices and we provide a single point of contact throughout the support experience, e.g. we leverage our relationships with the industry leading ISVs to resolve hardware and software problems, even if you didn’t license your software from HP…meaning no more finger pointing. Choice to receive support directly from HP or directly from one of HP’s Authorized Support Partners, ensuring you receive the proactive support you need from someone who knows you and your business, and is backed by a global ecosystem of experts, tools & technology. This is something no TPM on earth can provide. And the new HP Always On Support Portfolio offers the ability to completely customize the support experience including relationship management, call handling, proactive and reactive services and full multivendor support worldwide.. Next let’s talk about our support point of view

5 Revolutionary Support in a Changing IT World
Our Point of View Revolutionary Support in a Changing IT World In today’s ever changing world of IT, your support should be: Personalized: Your vendor knows you and offers support when, where and how you need it. Proactive: Leveraging products, tools and technology to avoid problems and optimize performance. Simplified: Straightforward support choices and a single point of contact throughout the support experience. So you need to ask the question…If your IT environment is changing, shouldn’t your Support Experience change too? At HP, we’re asking the question: If your environment is changing, shouldn’t your support experience change too? As I talked about on the last slide, core support processes have been mired in the “old world” of IT sprawl, isolated islands of limited automation and a disproportionate investment of IT resources in operations versus innovation. Simply stated…today’s support processes have not kept up with the dramatic changes in the IT environment and have become out of sync with the realities and demands of today’s enterprise. They have become harder to manage and more complex, hurting performance and increasing costs We actually have something we call our Revolutionary Credo. Just like the founding fathers of the united states had a declaration around our rights – we have a set of customer rights for support and we based on our new support portfolio on this credo. Here are a few of our “We believe” statements: : We believe you need a direct connection to experts anytime anywhere. We believe routine problems should fix themselves. We believe getting the most performance from your systems is not just your problem. Our New Always On Support Portfolio provides a support experience that is personalized, proactive and simplified Personalized: Customers decide how, when and where they receive Support – either directly from HP or our Authorized Support Partners who know their IT environment. Proactive: Leverage next generation HP products and enhanced remote and online support tools that keep infrastructure aligned and up to date, and access to the best people when there is have a problem. Simplified: Straightforward service levels and a Single Point of Contact from initial call to resolution backed by tools, deep skills, and an ecosystem of global partnerships. Last month we talked about the next evolution of our personalized, proactive, simplified support experience when we announced Gen 8.

6 Revolutionary Support in a Changing IT World
So what do We Believe? Revolutionary Support in a Changing IT World We believe you need a direct connection to experts anytime anywhere. routine problems should fix themselves. getting the most performance from your systems is not just your problem. you want push-button simplicity from your technology and support. you have more important things to do than patch management. you want a choice in who delivers your best in class support. in continuously giving more value from your support services, for less. you deserve a superior customer experience HP SUPPORT EXPERTS and HP ServiceONE PARTNER EXPERTS LIKE ROLF SCHUMACHER ARE ALWAYS ON. SO ARE THEIR CUSTOMERS. Customers’ enterprise have been are changing, so are their IT requirements. They are in the process of modernizing infrastructure through convergence, virtualization, and cloud solutions. As a result, core support processes have become harder to manage and more complex, hurting performance and increasing costs. At HP, we believe support requirements have evolved. Customer today, need a push-button simplicity from technology and support. They want their routine problems to get fixed automatically. They want the maximum performance from their systems and a better customer experience – converged across hardware, services, and vendors. Customers want more value from IT for less. And that is why we are revolutionizing support so that customers get best in class support – anytime, anywhere.

Datacenter Care Environment Wide Entitlement Existing/new equipment covered by Datacenter Care without explicitly adding those devices to a contract Deliverables are individually sized and priced depending on the customer’s specific needs – not per device pricing Devices can have any level of reactive & proactive support Primary Service Provider support for Multivendor environments Environment Wide Entitlement provides Enhanced Call Handling for all devices covered by Datacenter Care. The objective is to allow customers to get access to a better call support experience without having to explicitly list all of their devices on the contract. It also allows the customer to add additional devices over the life of the contract without having to adjust or extend the contract. All devices covered by Enhanced Call Handling must have HP reactive support. Either by direct inclusion on the Datacenter Care contract or independently through Warranty or other support entitlement such as Care Packs, Foundation Care, SP24, P24, CS, MCP, CA, Proactive Care, etc . Additional devices purchased during life of the contract also need reactive support through any of the above mechanisms. The charge for Enhanced Call Handling (what used to be called Priority Recovery) may already have been included in the original contract price or will be added through additional DC Proactive Units at time of sale or at predefined periods.
