Re: HP Networking Revenue Ahead
 

SachinEE, that does make sense.  They are at least structuring HP to optimize both business lines; that should give them the chance to succeed.

Re: HP Networking Revenue Ahead
briandnewby, I am with you on your assessment.  HP definitely has their work cut out for them; but they are at least acknowledging the need for change and positioning themselves to succeed.  We will see if that is enough - it is more than others are doing!

Re: juxtaposition
@Ariella - I believe this was the phrasing used on the call, and Whitman was quite vague overall on the topic. However, looking through past reports, the jobs cuts have been consistently referred to as layoffs, so I probably should have been clear on that. Also, there's a growing belief HP will cut at least 5,000 more jobs on top of what had been planned as the split occurs, though Whitman didn't specifically say so on the call. So, that would put the ultimate total of layoffs around 55,000.

Re: juxtaposition
Most probably these 40k employees are offered a favorable exit package that is appealing enough for them to leave quietly without the need for a layoff process. Similar to what happened at NSN, 2 years ago in its 20 k job cut

<HP officials also said on the call that it still hasn't reached its goal of cutting 50,000 jobs. About 41,000 employees left the company during fiscal 2014.>

So the company wants to get rid of 50K, but only 41K have left. The way it's presented makes it sound like they chose to leave. Is the company asking for voluntary early retirements and such to avoid laying people off against their will?

Re: HP Networking Revenue Ahead
It is a good strategic move. To think HP can come out with all the downside and still aquire to make better business, this shows a unified business policy from both halves.

Re: HP Networking Revenue Ahead
Hello Sir and Happy Thanksgiving :-)

I am routing for them--they have a fabulous Engineering Tradition that I hope endures.    Meg Whitman is not to be sold short either--that's for sure.   The question is whether in this "new enviornment" we are in, HP as separate entities can go it alone.

:-)

Re: HP Networking Revenue Ahead
True, but the overall viability of HP is to be admired, given the last few years before Meg Whitman.   I'm not a fan of minding the store, which, comparably is what I think Dan Hesse did at Sprint.  The performance seems similar on the surface, but I don't think that's what she's done--it does seem like survival has been an accomplishment.

Re: HP Networking Revenue Ahead
The need to have competition is ever so crucial.    It is kind of tragic to see such luminaries undergone such radical transformation as HP is going through.   Although it is welcome that HP's networking business saw the increase, the question is whether they're ready to embrace the Software-Defined Networking environment in a major way though.    

The long-term viability of HP as a separate entity to me is an open question.
