HP's Autonomy Mishap: From High Expectations To High Anxiety


Oct. 20, 2011: HP Strategy Chief Steps Down

HP Strategy Chief Shane Robison, an 11-year HP veteran and one of the primary backers of the Autonomy acquisition along with Apotheker and Lane, announced that he would retire effective Nov. 1, 2011. The retirement announcement came after Robison with Lane at his side spoke out in defense of the Autonomy acquisition. "When you can do things like extract meaning out of emails, determine difference in images, determine tone and mood in voice, the capabilities are unlimited," Robison had told InformationWeek.
