Hewlett Packard recently announced that it will split into two separate businesses. These will be one for printers, consumables and PCs while the other will be focused on services.
Both businesses will still be behemoths and remain inside the Fortune 50. This is a testament to how large HP has become over the years as it grew by acquisitions. For many external observers this growth has allowed HP to become bloated and unresponsive to the fast moving Internet age, so the division has been cautiously welcomed.
At this stage there does not appear to be any ramifications for smaller HP customers who will typically simply move to the new PC business. It is hoped that this “smaller” business will provide greater focus, flexibility and agility when it comes to PC sales and support.
