It’s official: Say hello to Hewlett Packard Enterprise

02 Nov 15

With the separation of Hewlett Packard into two separate companies now formally complete, Hewlett Packard Packard Enterprise is embarking ‘on a new journey’.

Nick Wilson, Hewlett Packard Enterprise South Pacific managing director and general manager Enterprise Services, says the company is ‘excited to reinvigorate our relationship with customers, partners and employees’.

The new Hewlett Packard Enterprise will debut on the New York Stock Exchange today as HPE, an enterprise focused technology company with US$53 billion in annual revenue.

Hewlett Packard Enterprise will be headed up by president and chief executive officer, Meg Whitman.

The company says it will be focused on four key areas that are ‘fundamental’ to enabling business transformation and future growth, and represent an estimated total addressable market of more than US$1 trillion.

And the four key areas?

According to HP they are:

Transforming to a hybrid infrastructure by helping customers seamlessly manage information across traditional IT and private, managed and public cloud environments

Empowering a data-driven organisation engineered to turn information into insight and insight into action

Protecting the digital enterprise to manage risk, monitor operations, protect information and applications and sustain operational integrity

Enabling workplace productivity to create best in class experience for employees, customers and partners through mobility and networking solutions.

“In a dynamic market environment where technology is transforming businesses and entire industries at an unprecedented pace, Hewlett Packard Enterprise builds on its rich heritage of innovation and industry leading positions in infrastructure, services, software and financial services,” the company says.

It says it will provide the ‘cutting edge’ technology solutions customers need to optimise their traditional IT while helping them build the secure, cloud enabled, mobile-ready future that is uniquely suited to their needs.
