<p>HP announces Australian mobility program for Microsoft Exchange Server 2003</p>
<p>Mobility Pilot Program one of six new services for Australian market</p>
<p>SYDNEY, Australia, 22 October 2003 HP is seeking Australian companies to participate in a mobility pilot program for Microsoft Exchange Server 2003, following the launch of the new messaging application today.</p>
<p>The HP Mobility Pilot Program was introduced in Sydney in conjunction with five new enterprise services for Microsoft Exchange Server 2003.</p>
<p>The Mobility Pilot Program is designed to introduce businesses to the significant benefits of implementing mobility solutions based on the robust architecture of Microsoft Exchange Server 2003, while demonstrating, with a low level of investment, the relative ease with which it can be implemented.</p>
<p>Each program will allow up to 50 users from each company to run almost all of their networked workplace applications from an HP iPAQ Pocket PC or Tablet PC. The users will be migrated to an isolated server environment running Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 for the duration of the program.</p>
<p>Allan Baird, HP Worldwide Portfolio Manager, Messaging Platforms, unveiled the new services at the official launch for Microsoft Office System at the Horden Pavilion.</p>
<p>"HP's Mobility Pilot Program will push the wireless office concept beyond receiving email and web browsing; it puts entire office functionality into the palm of your hand. Furthermore, operations and management couldn't be easier because of the integration with Exchange Server 2003," said Baird.</p>
<p>"The Mobility Pilot Program will significantly benefit highly mobile enterprises that have, until now, been limited in the range of functionality delivered by mobile services.</p>
<p>"HP is the only organisation that can deliver such a solution, from its very own devices and high end servers through to providing Microsoft services," he said. "We have been planning our services and training our staff for over ten months now in preparation for the Microsoft Office launch."</p>
<p>The other services launched today include:</p>
<p>- Vision to Value Service: allows business managers to participate in the design or redesign and deployment of a mission critical, enterprise wide messaging system and ensures it meets the needs of the business. With this service, messaging can be embedded in key business processes to automate them and to ensure customers are served quickly and efficiently.
- Exchange Server 2003 Design and Plan Service: provides organisations with deployment plans based on the new enterprise strengths of Microsoft Exchange Server 2003. The service draws upon HP's abilities, as the leader in the delivery of sound yet innovative designs and plans for deploying Microsoft Exchange.
- Exchange Server 2003 Implementation Service: continues similar services that have positioned HP as Microsoft's only worldwide integrator for Exchange. The service reduces the system integration risk anywhere in the world.
- Exchange Review Service: designed for organisations that have implemented an Exchange 2003 environment and are looking to ensure an 'always available' IT infrastructure. This service addresses questions around the service management, server and system performance, and mail delivery time and results.
- Consolidation Value Workshop: provides a detailed review of the existing infrastructure and is designed to consolidate the number of servers an organisation is supporting.</p>
<p>The announcement coincides with Microsoft's selection of HP for its prestigious 2003 Global Services Partner of the Year Award, a testimony to the companies' strong relationship. HP manages more than 1,500 Microsoft related projects every year.</p>
<p>"HP has partnered with Microsoft for more than 20 years and its 28,000 Microsoft trained professionals worldwide are well positioned to assist businesses in increasing agility and reducing bottom line costs through Microsoft Exchange Server 2003," said Andrew Cunningham, product manager for Exchange Server 2003, Microsoft corp.</p>
