10 Cloud Predictions For 2013


Hewlett-Packard Moves Radically To The Cloud

Hewlett-Packard, which designated its Converged Cloud strategy a top priority in September, will make noise in 2013 by moving as much of its business as possible to a cloud services delivery model.

HP CEO Meg Whitman is trying to breathe life into the tech giant following a series of difficulties in 2012, and she is counting on growth from the company's cloud computing segment.

HP set up an internal division in September to unify several disparate units that handled cloud products and services that, according to an internal memo, "will work across HP's various cloud initiatives to drive a unified Converged Cloud portfolio, architecture, product/solutions, and delivery framework, while building a central products/engineering and technology team to accelerate the delivery of HP's cloud solutions to market."
