Hewlett-Packard

Hewlett-Packard is the PC leader and has a wide range of businesses ranging from printing to software to enterprise servers. HP also is a major services player via the acquisition of EDS.

The next CEO, however, must show that HP can grow organically sans acquisitions and cost cuts.
