Today, organizations are navigating forward in an unprecedented environment of uncertainty that impacted many at a speed and scale that would have been unimaginable until recently.

As leaders look for the best ways to move their businesses and teams forward, both financial and operational agility are top of mind.

According to a recent IDC report,(1) “A variety of trends are converging that in summation amount to an emerging shift toward more enterprise networking solutions being delivered to enterprises as a service and via flexible consumption models” which provides customers “with the ability to scale capacity up or down fairly quickly without significant up-front financial outlays.”

Aruba offers a range of flexible financing and as a service consumption solutions for our customers.

Flexible financing solutions include traditional financing and subscription programs, deferring payments during challenging economic times, helping release capital from existing infrastructures, and/or using pre-owned technology to relieve capacity strain.

Additionally, you, along with HPEFS, can help your community and the world.
