HP: Meg Whitman νέα CEO, αντίο στον Leo Apotheker

Τρομερές ανακατατάξεις στην HP με την Meg Whitman να αναλαμβάνει το ρόλο του CEO στην εταιρεία 11 μόλις μήνες μετά την πρόσληψη του Leo Apotheker σε αυτό ακριβώς το πόστο. Δυστυχώς η δουλειά του Leo ως CEO δεν ήταν η καλύτερη δυνατή με την μετοχή να χάνει περί το 47% της αξίας, το webOS να θανατώνεται, η HP να θέλει να πληρώσει 10 δισεκατομμύρια δολάρια για την εξαγορά της Autonomy και να σκέφτει να ξεφορτωθεί το κομμάτι κατασκευής PC.

Οι πρώτες πληροφορίες αναφέρουν ότι η Meg Whitman ως νέα CEO εγκρίνει μέρος των σχεδίων του προκατόχου της θέσης, όπως η πώληση του Personal Systems Group και το τέλος ζωής του webOS. Πρακτικά αυτό σημαίνει ότι τα HP PC θα βρουν άλλο μέρος και κατασκευαστή και το webOS θα παραμείνει ένα όμορφο όνειρο. Όπως χαρακτηριστικά φαίνεται ότι δήλωσε η Whitman, η στρατηγική που έχει επιλεχθεί είναι σωστή.

Πριν από την HP η Meg Whitman είχε την θέση της CEO στο eBay.
