I just found out some other folks within HP Enterprise Services are starting to blog. The first blog addresses the range of activities that take place in HP Enterprise services. When HP purchased EDS a few years back, the combined strength is still poorly understood in the marketplace. This site will discuss some of the activities underway. Most people don’t realize that HP now has:
- Over 150,000 employees located throughout the world focused on infrastructure management, applications development & management and business process outsourcing;
- More TOGAF and ITAC level 3 architects than any other company in the world;
- Management of millions of desktops at thousands of clients across the world.
And that is just the beginning.
HP supports more than 1,700 business and government clients in 90 countries. As one of the largest segments of HP, HP ES leverages the breadth of HP's extended portfolio to offer the most comprehensive end-to-end IT services of any company in the world.
The second blog addresses activities in the business process outsourcing space. BPO to me has always been the top layer of the cloud where people and process are leveraged in a multi-tenant, pay as you go fashion. This is an area that HP/EDS has been in for decades and this blog should bring some of the stories and perspectives of this information to light.
Yesterday marked the end of the EDS brand. This is a bit hard for many of us who have spent a significant portion of their lives dedicated to EDS and its clients. On the other hand, we still have our clients and the employees who worked to meet their needs, with the depth and breadth of HP to back them up.
