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.

  • Computer Weekly Special Report: Fujitsu

     

    Fujitsu has been an insular company, with a market centred in Japan. Does it have what it takes to reinvent itself as a well-represented global player, with cloud computing at its heart?

     

    Fujitsu manufactures computer products ranging from individual components, through to a variety of mobile computing and PC products, servers, and large mainframes. Its 172,438 employees give it a global presence, although almost two-thirds of its revenue still comes from Japan.

     

    Fujitsu recently restructured and is embarking on a broad plan to integrate its businesses and boost the percentage of its revenues that come from outside its core Japanese market.

     

    It is launching a global initiative to develop and promote a cloud computing presence, which is hoped will help to boost its presence in markets including Asia-Pacific and North America, where it has been under-represented.

     

    Fujitsu’s reinvention is likely to yield good results. It has the goods to back up its vision and just needs the cultural impetus to drive home its message and create more awareness in growth markets.

     

    This 11 page special report updated for 2014 gives you the facts on  Fujitsu its strategy, products and services and financial performance.
