01-10-2015: Dell EMC HP Remix

Cloud computing continues to disrupt the traditional IT hardware and software markets and invalidate long-standing business models. Dell Inc. is acquiring EMC Corp. and spinning out Vmware, Inc. and Virtustream in hopes that it can gain momemtum in three different market segments. Hewlett-Packard Co. (HP) splits into two entities, announces more staff cuts and drops its Helion public cloud business. Expectations are mixed that the new HP companies can halt the revenue shrinkage and reverse the course.
