Controversial American bigwig in London... no, not Trump: HPE ex-CEO Meg Whitman to give Autonomy trial evidence

Aha, there was me wondering why this story seemed to have gone quiet.

Not sure how relevant any of this is, but some of the story rings sadly true. My own experience of working in the UK IT industry (not Autonomy) has been of some very bad and unpleasant management. The US companies I've worked for (not HP - but including one US company that is owned by a UK company) have been much better. If Lynch was typical of UK management then the remarks about him being impossible ring rather true.

Not that any of that affects the figures available to HP when they overpaid (or to Oracle when they called it absurdly overpriced at half what HP paid).
