Hewlett-Packard has given EDS a new name a year after acquiring the company. The new moniker: HP Enterprise Services.
The acquisition has delivered handsome returns to HP as the key hardware businesses were whacked by the recession. HP said the name change comes following a year of integration moves. In a nutshell, HP is signaling with the name change that the EDS integration is complete.
HP's Technology Solutions Group business will be renamed HP Enterprise Business. That group will include servers, storage, software, networking and technology services.
With all the naming conventions clear, you can expect that HP will go after IBM's services unit with more fervor.
