HP? That the kiss of death then
HP, given its past track record of purchases really does not know what to do with companies they buy. Integration into 'the HP way' takes forever or never happens at all. If it is the latter then that is AFAIK, a sure sign that the biz is going to be left to wither and die.
Look at the companies they have acquired in the past 10 years. Those busisness units that are still left are hardly setting the world of fire with their technology or services now are they?
Anon because I've seen it from the inside and far too many of my friends are still there hoping to survive until they too retire.
