About Us


Hewlett Packard Enterprise got its start over 75 years ago because of two men who believed in their ideas. In 1939, our founders, Bill Hewlett and Dave Packard, started a revolution in a garage in Palo Alto, California - the original Silicon Valley startup, known as Hewlett Packard (HP).

Working with limited resources, the pair created a series of products—starting with audio oscillators used by sound engineers—sometimes using the Packard family oven to put on finishing touches. Their efforts impressed Walt Disney Studios, one of HP’s early customers, and set the course for a legacy of innovation and leadership that has never stopped.

From its origins in a Palo Alto garage, HP grew and evolved significantly into one of the world’s leading technology companies.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise today

In order to successfully maintain our market leading status, on 1st November 2015 HP separated into 2 new industry leading Fortune 50 companies. Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE) focusses solely on enterprise, both large and small – helping our customers use technology to turn ideas into value – transforming industries, markets and lives. We offer the most complete end-to-end portfolio in the market which spans servers, storage, networking, software, services and solutions. We bring the advantages of that scale, the breadth and depth of our portfolio, to solve our customers’ most challenging problems. That’s the reason we are the #1 or #2 leader in almost all product categories in which we compete.

We know that what we do is core to the businesses of our customers and partners.  We are innovators at heart – that’s in our DNA.  We will continue to bring forth the practical innovation we’ve always been known for – the pride we feel in inventing new ways to improve how we live and work. We work hard to nurture an inclusive culture where all of our employees contribute to tomorrow’s breakthroughs. After all, ingenious ideas and inspired thinking can come from anyone, anywhere, anytime.

And, there are new elements we want to explore, like agility, openness and partnership with our customers. It takes more than great technology to succeed in the world today. It also takes an environment where collaborative people, empowering technology, and transformative ideas come together to carry our customers forward faster. This is at the heart of Hewlett Packard Enterprise.

Meets HPE’s Graduates

Benson Duong | 2017 Sales Graduate | Aruba | Sydney

What area of the business do you work for? What is your role?

I am currently part of Aruba, a Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company. This area of the business is primarily focused on networking with an aim to deliver a complete end-to-end solution of networking hardware, software, security and support services. I began the Graduate program as a sales support team member of the SMB sales division. I’ve since moved on to a SMB distribution specialist role where I’m getting to work with our distributors on sales enablement, marketing campaigns, promotions, SMB run-rate activity and bringing exposure/awareness to the market on Aruba’s SMB product line.

What’s the best part of your job?

The best part of my job is being able to come into work and not only love what you do, but who you work with. Working alongside knowledgeable colleagues with plenty years of experience, it feels encouraging to know that they learn from me as much as I learn from them. The amount of support that my team has given when pushed out of your comfort zone has been incredible. I’ve felt like part of the greater team since Day One and it feels good to know that the work I do early on has already contributed to the company.

What kind of skills have you developed since joining HPE?

Business acumen and soft skills have been the top two skillsets that I’ve picked up since joining HPE. Whilst I already had some understanding of business/financial language, it wasn’t until putting theory into practice that you are tested on what you know. As part of my induction, HPE provided introductory (and further) training which allowed me to gain the required knowledge and experience on our technology and internal processes. Constant engagement with customers, partners and those outside of our business gives me the chance to network, learn and ultimately, take in the ideas and experiences of others to form a basis for what you want on your career path.

What does it take to thrive in a graduate position at HPE?

Personally, I believe in the phrase that ‘you only get out of life what you put into it’. To thrive in a graduate position means being honest to yourself and understanding what you do and don’t know.  It is then up to you to decide what you do with that knowledge – no one comes into a graduate position and is expected to know all, and no one in the company expects that either. Triple-downing on your strengths, knowledge and expertise whilst leveraging the resources around you to work on your weaknesses and areas you lack understanding will help in the process of understanding where you want to be day by day.
