  • CW Special Report on HP

     

     

    It’s been a stormy few years for HP, with a succession of CEOs, strategic U-turns and turbulent financial results. Can its latest chief executive get the business on an even keel and hold it there?

     

    From its humble beginnings in a Palo Alto garage, the company has grown from a $5,000, two employe manufacturer of oscillators to a $127 billion concern, spanning PCs, printers, enterprise servers, software and services.

     

    Along the way, HP has experienced its fair share of controversy, including most recently another change of CEO, a hastily abandoned plan to sell off its consumer technology division, and an $8 billion write-down of its acquisition of Autonomy amid allegations of financial irregularities.

     

    This 12 page special report from Computer Weekly, updated for 2013,  gives you the facts on HP, its strategy, products and services and financial performance.
