HPE announces new CTO

HPEFidelma Russo has joined Hewlett Packard Enterprise at its new Chief Technology Officer.

She replaces Kumar Sreekanti who is retiring and who joined the company via its acquisition of BlueData in 2018.

Russo’s role will be to lead the innovation agenda and technology roadmap for the company. Crucially, she will also manage the design and development of the firm's GreenLake platform.

In her 30 years in the industry, Russo has held leadership roles spanning cloud services, machine learning and analytics, IT services, servers, storage, networking, backup, and infrastructure. Most recently she was Senior Vice President and General Manager of the Cloud Services business unit at VMware. Her skills seem a very good fit with HPE’s broad portfolio of technology.

The success of GreenLake is critical for HPE. It is central to its strategic aim to channel its portfolio through a consumption-based model - a move that Dell and Lenovo have also more recently announced. There was positive news earlier this month with the $2bn GreenLake win at the National Security Agency - evidence that the platform is gaining momentum.
