Cuddling up to EMC these days

The Queen of expensive printer ink, HP’s Meg Whitman said that Intel has walked away from the Wintel alliance and is cuddling up to EMC.

Whitman said that the environment is changing and Microsoft is also stepping solidly into HP's space. She added that the vertically integrated model seems to be on the upswing and HP has to adapt. Up swinging vertically integrated models can be dangerous in a confined space.

She said that the company faces a challenging macro environment, shifting market forces and a rapidly changing competitive landscape, Whitman emphasized that the company has the right leadership team in place to advance its strategy, drive innovation across the business and improve its go-to-market execution. Whitman reiterated that she expects HP’s revenues to grow in line with gross domestic product over the long term.
