That’s according to Giovanni Mezgec, general manager, Office Partner Marketing, Microsoft Corp following Hewlett Packard Enterprise’s (HPE) latest release - the Modern Workspace.

The organisation has unveiled its new smart conference room service, a built in collaboration with leading technology and service providers.

“We are excited to see HPE take the lead on bringing this transformative technology to our customers by integrating Skype Room Systems into their services offering.”

HPE’s Modern Workspace is a collaboration solution that bridges the physical and virtual worlds.

Michelle Cox, director of Portfolio & Practices at HPE South Pacific, says HPE Enterprise Services Modern Workspace is ideal for any company.
