On October 6, HP announced its intention to split and become two separate companies. HP Enterprise will focus on enterprise services and technologies while HP Inc will handle the consumer business and printing.
Whitman noted that over the last month, she has met with many customers, partners and employees and the feedback was overwhelmingly positive.
“They are excited about the potential of these two laser-focused companies that will each be leaders in their respective markets and what that can mean for their businesses and their careers,” Whitman said. “It’s still early in the process but we have a comprehensive plan to ensure that we execute a successful separation with minimal disruption to the business.”
