What is HP?

A 77-year-old giant that has changed and split in two.


HP stands for Hewlett-Packard and was a US based company that focused on computer hardware and software, and IT services and consulting.

Hewlett-Packard existed as a single entity until November 2015 when it split into HP Inc and HP Enterprise, commonly referred to as HPE.

HP Inc focuses on the PC and printers business while HPE targets the enterprise products market and services.
