25 Facts Partners Should Know About HP

HP executives on Oct. 6 announced that the company will split in two by the end of its fiscal 2015. HP Inc., will house the PC and printer businesses, and Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, will focus on servers, storage, networking, converged systems, services as well as the Open Stack Helion cloud platform.

UPDATED Oct. 21, 2014: As HP approached the fourth year of its five-year turnaround plan, CEO Meg Whitman announced the company would be split into two separate companies by the end of its fiscal year 2015 next fall.  One company, HP Inc., will concentrate on the PC and printer businesses, and the other, Hewlett-Packard Enterprise, will focus on servers, storage, networking, converged systems, services as well as the Open Stack Helion cloud platform.  Whitman said cutbacks and reorganization that were part of the turnaround made the split possible. Despite massive layoffs and several lawsuits against the company, HP spent the last year reconnecting with customers and partners. For example, the tech giant overhauled its HP PartnerOne program to better support its channel partners for both traditional networking products and services and emerging high-growth technologies. How dividing HP into two parts will affect the channel in the long run is uncertain. Channel Insider examines facts and figures on the split and looks back at key changes at HP in the past few years.
