HP announced new products and services on Thursday that are aimed at helping small and midsized businesses (SMBs) simplify their IT infrastructure to accelerate business gains from mobile access.

The use of mobile devices in the workplace allows for sophisticated business and process management applications to be accessed remotely. However, SMBs traditionally have static and fragmented IT infrastructures, making it difficult to rapidly or efficiently respond to infrastructure demands driven by a mobile workforce and virtualised applications. 

 HP hopes to simplify IT management for SMBs by expanding the HP Converged Infrastructure portfolio with new storage and network solutions that are designed to improve employee productivity by providing secure access to business applications and data via mobile devices. In addition, HP is offering financing and training programmes that it says "address SMBs' end-to-end mobility challenges by enabling them to acquire the resources needed to boost business responsiveness in the evolving mobile marketplace, quickly and easily".

"Mobility will soon be a normal part of every SMB workplace, as it moves from being used primarily for email to supporting critical business applications such as CRM and sales inventory," said Robert Anderson, research VP at Gartner, Inc. "Small and midsize businesses must align and modernise their existing IT capabilities to take advantage of the business benefits and competitive differentiation mobility brings."
