Cloud units shuffled ahead of HP split

News: Shuffle aims to align cloud software and hardware units.

By James Nunns

A cloud re-shuffle is taking place at HP, a month before the company is set to split into two companies on November 1st.

The re-shuffle will see the research and development organisation that is related to its cloud computing area, will move into the software business unit, along with the cloud product management group.

The R&D cloud side is headed up by Mark Interrante, while the cloud product management group is headed by Bill Hilf. Robert Youngjohns currently heads the software business unit.

Bill Hilf will lead this organisation under the leadership of Youngjohns, with Interrante reporting to Hilf.

These aren’t the only moves, with the group devoted to selling its cloud hardware and services, being shifted into the Enterprise Group, which is mostly devoted to selling servers, storage and networking gear.

These moves will be finalised when HP finally splits into two companies, HP Inc and Hewlett-Packard Enterprise.

These re-shuffles were made public in a memo obtained from CEO Meg Whitman. The idea behind the changes is to enable the acceleration of its hybrid infrastructure area, said Whitman.
