Why did Hewlett-Packard separate into two entities?
In November 2015, Hewlett-Packard Company separated to create two companies – Hewlett Packard Enterprise, an enterprise technology company, and HP Inc., a leader in personal computing and printing technologies – each uniquely designed to focus on the markets they serve. The separation was designed to simplify business structure and streamline the focus of each company, enabling each to better succeed in a changing technology landscape. The split empowered both companies to build on Hewlett-Packard’s 75-plus year legacy of innovating cutting-edge technologies to support the customers they serve and deliver maximum value to company shareholders. Other than a shared history, HP Inc. and HPE are completely separate companies with no affiliation.
For Hewlett Packard Enterprise, the separation has enabled a singular focus on driving innovative and industry-leading technologies designed to help companies lead and transform, positioning HPE as a partner of choice and category leader now and for the future. Today HPE offers solutions across servers, storage, hybrid infrastructure, edge computing, and software and networking equipment, helping companies capitalize on emerging technologies such as AI, IoT and more.
