In IT industry terms it couldn’t be bigger.

While we’re used to writing about M&As to make super giants, writing about super giants voluntarily splitting up is more rare.

Today HPE comes in to existence.

But what is it? In this day and age the first thing to say is it has a new twitter page. And for those of us in the UK, it has this twitter page.

HPE will sell the firm’s Helion Cloud, its Moonshot servers, X86 servers, 3Par branded storage, HP Oneview management platform, security and analytics software and services.

HPE CEO Meg Whitman is in New York to ring hte opening bell at the New York Stock Exchange.

In a guidance statement to analysts in September Whitman said the firm would have revenues of over $50bn. "Hewlett Packard Enterprise will be smaller and more focused than HP is today, and we will have a broad and deep portfolio of businesses that will help enterprises transition to the new style of business," said Whitman
