Hewlett-Packard CEO Leo Apotheker will take the stage later today in San Francisco to outline his (so-far unclear) vision for the IT giant.
So far, reporting in the Wall Street Journal and elsewhere suggests he will talk up cloud computing (duh), and provide more detail on just how HP will boost its software business. Last week, new corp comm guy Bill Wohl issued a terse statement refuting a report that the company will sell off its PC business.
Meanwhile, many HP VARs keep wondering just where former channel chief Adrian Jones will surface.
While some think Dell is his destination, many have a sneaking hunch that Jones will join former HP CEO Mark Hurd at Oracle.Given Oracle’s flair for the dramatic counterprogramming move, I would bet they’ll hold off that announcement for a few more weeks so it can disrupt HP’s big Americas Partner Conference kicking off in Las Vegas where Apotheker will put on his full partner push.
