Fiorina explains HP’s consultancy move

Speaking at the Networld+Interop trade show in Atlanta, Fiorina said: ‘This is consistent with our belief that the days of talking to one company about business strategy and another company about technology implementation are, frankly, over.’

Relationships between business transformation and IT implementation were inextricable and conversations with customers were evidence of this trend, she said.

Fiorina cited a recent Boston Consulting Group survey which revealed that most chief information officers were looking for consulting and technology partners who were experienced at working together and that they valued a point of view on how and what technology could speed business transformation.

Fiorina stated: ‘Fundamentally, this acquisition is about combining world-class technology solutions with world-class consulting services to help customers transform their business.’
