The large global HP Sales team and prospective enterprise customers can discover certified software and hardware through the HP Helion Ready ISV Solution Catalog and the list of supported hardware. Additionally, HP Sales will recognize the badge as representing qualified hardware and software and potentially include them in enterprise sales conversations.
